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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Is it still working on the newest MyBB 1.8.12? I set all the api keys and secrets correctly, added buttons to my registration template and after clicking any of the 3 buttons (Facebook, Google, Twitter) no "popup" opens. I'm just redirected to the page seen on the attachment. What am I doing wrong here?[Image: VBRRE7g.png]

Can you provide me a temp FTP account? I will check this out as soon as possible. Besides, Flyover works with the latest MyBB version as you can see from the live demo on MyBBoost.

I found out what is going on. I have set ACP > Forum settings > Forcing ppl to login... (name can be kinda different - I removed the English land, becase forum is Polish:P). That's why it didn't let me use your plugin and I have been redirecting to the login page. Totally forgot about such option.
But in the other hand this is a bug IMHO. I would like to block my forum content and force registering. But I can handle this pretty easy setting proper permissions for guests :)

I'm glad you have sorted it out on your own. This looks like something I can easily add given I have implemented the same thing in MyFacebook Connect 3.6.

But I'm still fighting. Can't log in using any of: Facebook, Google and Twitter...

Getting this error for Facebook:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<report name="Flyover" version="1.2">
        <message>Authentication failed! Facebook returned an invalid user id.</message>
        <trace> /var/www/html/inc/plugins/Flyover/hybridauth/Hybrid/Auth.php(55): Hybrid_Auth::initialize(Array)

#2 /var/www/html/flyover.php(36): Flyover->load_api()

Getting the same message trying to log in here - using this forum's Facebook login. It is probably due to an Facebook API update :(

Unfortunately this is one of those errors I must debug personally. I would be glad to help you out if you PM me a temporary FTP account, so I can perform some debugging directly.

I have fixed the issue and it's likely I will push an update soon given it's high priority to have Facebook working again. The other providers should be unaffected.

You will *not* need to update the entire plugin as it's just an update to HybridAuth.
