Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,

Thread: Facebook Connect popup blocked by some navigators : how to fix it ?

    Facebook Connect popup blocked by some navigators : how to fix it ?

    Hi guys !
    I made a websites which needs the user to login to Facebook.
    It uses the facebook API to check if the user is logged or not; and the API opens a popup if he is not logged.

    Code:
    import com.facebook.graph.Facebook;
    import com.facebook.graph.data.FacebookSession;
    import com.facebook.graph.net.FacebookRequest;
    
    ...
    
    Facebook.init(APP_ID, FBDidInit);
    
    ....
    
    Facebook.login(FBfinishedLogin, {perms:"publish_stream,user_location"});
    The problem is that with some of the browsers (eg. Safari); the popup is blocked.
    It is the API and not my code which launches the popup so I have no control on it.

    Any idea of workaround ?

    Thanks !

    the only way i found is to use an html overlay and connect using PHP. You cant dispatch click events in JS from flash. It s always gonna be blocked in most browsers.
