  • Forum Members' Facebook Profile Links Have Changed / Not Working

    This afternoon, I tried to respond to several "teammates needed" posts. In every case, when I went to the member's profile and clicked their Facebook Profile URL, this was the result:


    When I first joined the forum and completed my member profile, I know I entered this URL for my Facebook Profile page (https://www.facebook.com/nancy.grogan.ehat) which results in this:



    But when I checked the URL contained in my Ooblada Forum Profile, this is what it I found: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?...53014574822183. Somehow, my profile URL was changed (and I suspect so were others) from our name to a numerical ID - - - and it's NOT working! All I get is that frustrating "Profile not available" screen.

    Does anyone know what's going on with the Facebook profile URLs?


    I'm always looking for more Riddle Stone teammates,
    so please feel free to send a friend request to me!

    That is interesting Nancy. I've had a bit of a play. I can get to mine and some others through the Facebook profile link, but yours and others bring up that Profile not available. Which is of course a real pain in the rear.

    Can you please grab me the forum profile links of the ones you tried and couldn't access their Facebook profiles. Right click on their name in the forum, copy the link address and paste it in the reply. I have a theory on this already and the developers will want to know which ones don't work.


    You, my dear, really underestimate my level of psycho. Keep going, I dare you.

      Amity: Thanks for testing this yourself. Here are several profiles I tried to connect with (via their forum profile) unsuccessfully:

      http://forum.ooblada.com/member.php?u=1732906
      http://forum.ooblada.com/member.php?u=1732957
      http://forum.ooblada.com/member.php?u=1733176
      http://forum.ooblada.com/member.php?u=1733516
      http://forum.ooblada.com/member.php?u=1733687
      http://forum.ooblada.com/member.php?u=1733833
      http://forum.ooblada.com/member.php?u=1733849
      http://forum.ooblada.com/member.php?u=1733855
      http://forum.ooblada.com/member.php?u=1733923


      The links in red are for members whose names are unique enough that I was able to connect by searching Facebook directly.

        Okay, it looks like my theory could be correct All of those people joined the forum after Facebook's API 2.0 interface was released on April 30 2015, the people who's Facebook links work joined prior to that.

        I don't know if this can be fixed, however I will pass this onto the developers to look investigate further.
