Facebook moduleMonkey Programming Forums/Monkey Programming/Facebook module
| Released my facebook code with support for more dialogs in proper module format.|
Dependancy on Diddy still so this also needs to be in your modules folder.
| That's cool! |
| this is now going into my current project, facebook is such a big deal now having tools like these is essential.|
saw on sky news last night that 1 in 9 people ON THE PLANET are on facebook. holy crap.
| Too bad there is no like functions here.|
Where did you get the links? I want to add a like function to it if it's possible.
| Yeah +Like would be nice. would help spread awareness of the game to others via their social circles. |
| Edit: Extra " in code removed |
I thought about adding it but it doesnt behave how you would expect, In order to do things without verification you have to gain an access token which is beyond this plugin.
Clicking the like button would bring up a webpage with another like button
(the official one)
I find its best to stick the like button in the HTML of a flash or Html5 game
rather than on the canvas
regardless ive updated the source and added this code
Function FBLike() LaunchBrowser("http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href="+varAppUrl,True) End
| Thanks a lot!!! |
| Great. Thanks |
| Many Thanks!!!|
one thing concerning this:
If AppURL.Contains("http://") = True
url can contain also "https://"
so I'd make like:
If AppURL.Contains("http://") = True Or AppURL.Contains("https://") = True Then
| your right I will make this change in the source |
| Also, I noticed, that URL must NOT contain spaces.|
Use "%20" instead!
'Not working!!! FBWallPost("Jet Worm", "Never sleep during the party!", True) 'Working FBWallPost("Jet%20Worm", "Never%20sleep%20during%20the%20party!", True)
check the Name in FBSetUpApp as well!
I know, it's obvious, however I spend an hour or so to sort this out =)
(iOS tested, works perfectly!)
| Which browser did the above fail in as I thought that at first but it passed in everything I tested without converting to %20 |
| I tested on iPod, so it's iOS v5.1 Safari browser.|
Works well with spaces on html5 Google Chrome.
| Ok made some changes, no error for spaces just converts them on the fly to |
Removed the requirement for URLs to be in lower case
Added the HTTPS:// Suggesstion

| still doesn't work :(|
I tried even replace the whole URL.
Just need to manually replace spaces with %20
| Which bit doesn't work? |
URL, Message, Description?
Edit: Scrap that its a mistake in my code, didnt change the variable name from message to lvarmessage, Ive updated the post above, the ZIP should be correct though as my local version is correct I just forgot to update the forum
