Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

Help setting up the plugin

27 Dec 2018
This issue is marked as solved
I've gotten most of the social media logins I want setup, but I cannot get facebook or twitter to work at all. twitter says I do not have the correct callback url even though I'm using the one the plugin told me to use. same with facebook. I cannot figure out how to set up facebook login either. Any help is appreciated.

Hello, can you please post the callback URLs you are using? For Facebook you must replace hauth.done to hauth_done. This is an issue which has been brought to my attention recently and I still need to add a notice in the release thread, for which I am sorry.

For Twitter, please make some screenshots of your current app configuration, thank you!

With Facebook do I need to follow the tutorial that you posted for myfbconnect? Which needs a video of something and idk what it is.

Does the hauth issue that plagues Facebook currently affect Twitter as well? Because it won't let me use the given callback url for Twitter neither

Yes, I suppose you do need to send your app for verification. This was unnecessary some years ago, but due to recent worldwide efforts to secure users’ privacy, more strict monitoring over applications is constantly being applied and reinforced. The MFC tutorial might also be outdated as more and more controls are added month by month.

Either way, Facebook is very user-friendly and guides you through each sensible data requirement.

I don’t know how Twitter’s situation evolved lately, thus why I need some screenshots (I am also using the phone so I can’t check for myself).

This is using the callback url that flyover gives me for twitter
i even tried changing it from hauth.done to _done and that did nothing.

As for facebook, im not sure what to take a video of to get the keys as it wants a video of the api in use, but i cant do that with the plugin because i dont have the api keys to add to the plugin.
