$wgEmailConfirmToEdit and $wgEmailAuthentication conflict[edit | edit source]
I run a private wiki that only users can edit. I want to allow people to create an account or use Facebook connect. But if they create an account I want them to have a confirmed email to edit. When I set the two variables to true to allow that, it then prevents Facebook users from editing. Is there any way around this?
Special:Connect/Debug returning <facebook-error-needs-convert> + Fatal error: Class 'SpecialPageFactory' not found error[edit | edit source]
I have version 4.0.6stable installed on MW 1.19.5. When I go to the Special:Connect/Debug page I see <facebook-error-needs-convert> I assume this means something is not working right. I following the installation guide. What does this error mean?
I'm also seeing Fatal error: Class 'SpecialPageFactory' not found in /var/www/webapps/iow/extensions/Facebook/SpecialConnect.php on line 90 error when calling Special:Connect&returnto=Around_Isle_of_Wight
Any idea what the problem is here?

Broken on MW 1.21?[edit | edit source]
I'm having a hard time getting it to work on MW 1.21 When I click login with facebook, a window appears for a very short time and nothing happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Broken in 1.22[edit | edit source]
This extension should be updated to not to use ExternalUser, wich is deprecated. It should use AuthPlugin. Also, getPageTitle seems to be not implemented in 1.22, only in 1.23. It might use one or another depending on the version. --Krusher (talk) 12:37, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
- This is causing a PHP Fatal error: Class 'ExternalUser' not found in new Mediawiki versions. Has anyone fixed this?
$wgFbUserRightsFromGroup broken[edit | edit source]
The Facebook API seems to be deprecating user_groups. I get the following error when trying to "Log In with Facebook" for the first time on a new wiki:
Invalid Scopes: user_groups. This message is only shown to developers. Users of your app will ignore these permissions if present. Please read the documentation for valid permissions at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/facebook-login/permissions
From what I can tell, there's is no workaround: once the feature is fully deprecated, there will be no way for a MediaWiki extension to get group information from Facebook, and thus no way to manage permissions with a Facebook group. Am I understanding correctly?
