Hey Tareq, yes, I remember you :)

If only the score isn't showing, but the post IS, then are you getting something like "nil" in it's place?

If you really, really can't get it then email me your project file and I can try to take a look - no promises as I have so little time at the moment, but I might be able to help you work it out.

Alternatively, check this tutorial and make sure what you are doing matches it;

It works perfectly :)

FaceBook Integration :

Canvas Type : FBML
Social Discovery : Enable
Page Tab Type : FBML

Mobile and Devices : HTML 5

Credit : Blank

Advanced :

Sandbox Mode : disable

and everything else enable ,
are these right or wrong, because I cant reset them,

Did you change the settings on FB? Whatever the default ones are for new App, they're right - I can't remember if that is what is above or not though, it's been awhile.

What happens when you press the button to post from your phone? Does anything happen? Does it prompt you to login to Facebook? If so, does anything happen once you login?

I'm not sure what you mean about pressing button for member, however if it logs in successfully and you can see your picture I'm not sure why it isn't working.

Maybe check your Facebook settings RE applications; maybe you don't have it set so wall posts from apps are allowed?

Did something change on FB side? I no longer see the 'html 5' option when creating new apps :(
I have the same issue as eng.tareqali, I can login and post, but it never shows on my wall.

My previous games are still able to post and it shows on my wall and the settings are the same as my new game.

anyone else having this issue and/or figure it out?

any help would be appreciated.

thanks,

I built two apps this week for testing purposes after a friend of mine had some Facebook issues.

One was mine; I rebuilt it for testing purposes. Worked fine.

The other was my friend's app; it did not post to the wall although it clearly requested permission to do so when I logged in and then appeared under my app list on Facebook. (The apps one has installed, not the dev section.)

Eventually my friend's project did work for publishing; although I think that may have been a matter of persistence for than anything else.

Hopefully we'll get some more info soon.

Peach :)

PS - HTML5 is still an option, it's just moved and the list (or options) has shrunk. (Or at least, this was the case two days ago.)

do y'all still need to call local tableView = require("tableView")'
and use the printTable() function?

It was on techority site and I used it on previous game and still works :/

and sorry Peach, I have gone through the settings page on facebook and no longer see the html 5 option anywhere (I did a search on each list/option on the nav bar).

anybody got any suggestions?

thanks,

what about this msg in my Facebook app :
All of the following fields are required. Your application must have at least 5 total users or 10 monthly active users before you can submit it to the App Directory. We cannot showcase any applications that are under construction or do not utilize the Facebook Platform.

@rdcube - You are correct. I just checked it out and it has disappeared since the last time I looked. (I guess 4 days ago now.)

To the best of my knowledge you do still have to do the above, yes.

@eng.tareqali - You need that to submit to the directory. Submitting to the directory is not necessary. Your app will still be able to do everything it could in the directory.

Hi Tareq, missed this previously, apologies.

You do not need to submit your application to the directory for Facebook posting to work.

The directory means people searching on Facebook can find your app listed but it is not necessary. You do NOT need it in the directory.

As to posting, the score will post to the user's wall. This means they are sharing it with their friends.

Does that make sense?

Peach :)

Hi y'all,
I've been able to post with the new instructions to FB; however, it seems like now passing .. ToString(highscore) .. or .. highscore ..
gives the following post:

I collected "table: 0x3135a0" coins.
The characters after "table:" changes based on the actual number.

I went back to techority and found Peach posted a new update on how to post to FB:

-- This code posts a message to your Facebook Wall
if fbCommand == POST_MSG then
local postMsg = {
message = "I just got my boyfriend grade! I scored " .. testscore .. "% on Boyfriend Grade!",
name="How do you think YOU compare to me?",
caption="Get your grade now by downloading Boyfriend Grade for your iPhone!",
link="http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/boyfriend-grade/id421597972?mt=8",
picture="http://peachpellen.com/bg75.png"
}

It seems like .. testscore .. is the way to go without "ToString", but no luck for me :(

I had copy/pasted the whole thing as is and replaced with my info and it seems like I'm missing something because it always post with those weird characters.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
-RD

I've got the facebook posting a message, link to app in app store, and an image. All works great thanks to everyone's help on this page.

My question is, is there a way for my app to have facebook remember that the user is logged it, or do they have to sign in, everytime the app restarts or loads.

It remembers the sign in for the session, but if they get interrupted and then have to come back tot he game, they have to sign in again... anyway to get around this?

Thanks,

Keith

sorry for bumping this up, but - If it is my fault, please Ansca support - help!

Hey cmuth, this isn't the appropriate thread which is why you didn't get an answer previously - so my apologies about that but please in future if you want to ask about FB on Android make a thread in the Android section ;)

http://developer.anscamobile.com/forum/2011/05/29/facebook-connect-android-never-works

Check the above thread for some info on Facebook on Android devices.
