-====== Setting Up Facebook Connect ====== 
- 
-<tip c w>Do not use or test this feature using the admin account or with any facebook account where the email on that account matches the email of the admin user in your Geo software</tip> 
- 
-These instructions will walk you through steps necessary to set your site up to start using Facebook Connect. 
- 
-  - Install and enable the **Social Connect** addon in the admin at **Addons > Manage Addons**, as instructed in [[addons/install/start]]. < 
-  - If you do not already have a Facebook App for your website, go to [[http://developers.facebook.com/setup]] to sign up.  Note that you will need to have a personal Facebook account to create a Facebook App.  The link above goes to a page that looks like the following:\\ {{ :addons:social_connect:facebook_app_1.png }}\\ The above page would list any apps if you already had one.  The above shows an account with none of them.  In the above page you would click the "Create a New App" link.< 
-  - You will then see a screen like the one below: {{ :addons:social_connect:facebook_app_2.png }}\\ For the **Display Name** enter what you want the app name to be.  This will show when visitors click to login with facebook, it will be used at the top of the window to log in.  We recommend to use your site's name or something similar. Be sure to read the info provided when you hover over the ? next to the display name to see restrictions. The **category** field is now a requirement but doesn't really mean anything in this instance as you are not offering this app to other facebook users. You can set any category you like but **Apps for Pages** if you non-committal on your choice.  **Namespace** field is optional and not needed in this app instance.< 
-  - If you see one, Do NOT check the box for "web hosting"((Note that this option is not in the screenshot, for some reason the option only shows for some people.  If it gives you the option though, don't check it.)), since you already have your own hosting. Click the **Create App** button in that screen to continue.  < 
-  - You will now see a page like the one below:\\ {{ :addons:social_connect:facebook_app_3.png }}\\ From here click the **Settings** link in the left menu< 
-  - You will now see a page like the one below:\\ {{ :addons:social_connect:facebook_app_4.png }}\\ For **App Domains** enter the main domain name where the app will be used, without the www if you use it.  As an example, if your site was installed at www.example.com you would enter **example.com**  When you enter the main domain there, it should allow all sub-domains as well so that www.example.com will work, as well as any sub-domains for geographic navigation if you happen to use that feature.< 
-  - Next click on the **+ Add Platform** link in that same page as shown in the above screen shot.  You will see a section that appears like this:\\ {{ :addons:social_connect:facebook_app_5.png }}\\ Click the **Website** link/icon.< 
-  - You will now see the following within that page\\ {{ :addons:social_connect:facebook_app_6.png }}\\ Enter the website URL.  If the software was installed in http://example.com/index.php you would enter **http://example.com/**.  In other words when you view the software homepage on your website, it should be the entire URL minus the file index.php.< 
-  - Now you will need to get the **APP ID** and **App Secret** from you App Dashboard (click the Dashboard link in the left hand menu).  You will find those values there as seen in the following screenshot:\\ {{ :addons:social_connect:facebook_app_7.png }}\\ You will need to click on the **show** button next to **App Secret** to expose that value for cutting and pasting within those same fields in your ADDONS > SOCIAL CONNECT > SETTINGS admin tool like appears in the screenshot below:\\ {{ :addons:social_connect:facebook_app_8.png }}\\ After entering those values click the save button in that admin tool.< 
-  - Once you are sure you have everything correct you will need to change that status of your app from **development** to **live** within the **Status & Review** admin tool at facebook as it appears in the screenshot below:\\ {{ :addons:social_connect:facebook_app_9.png }}\\ Click the sliding button to allow the general public access to that feature.< 
-  - Now try the feature on the client side.  But DO NOT test this with an facebook account whose email matches the Geo admin users account.<
