  • I noticed that Sitefinity comes packaged with the Facebook C# SDK 4.0.2. I want to implement a "Login with Facebook" button that is integrated with Sitefinity but I have run into several problems. Is there a sample project that already has this functionality built in that I can reference?

    In the absence of a sample project, I would like to upgrade the SDK to the latest version. I have been able to successfully create Login With Facebook functionality (not integrated with Sitefinity, but with plain old ASP.NET) with the recent SDKs but 4.0.2 does not seem to work. However, when I update the DLLs, Sitefinity throws an error - something about not being able to find a particular type. I assume that it is looking for a class from 4.0.2 that no longer exists anymore. So, in the absence of a sample project running on 4.0.2, has anyone had success with upgrading the SDK to a newer version?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Jeff,

    We don't have a built-in Facebook connector, and we haven't planned time for it. If there are a lot of customers requesting that, the Sitefinity team might change the priority of the features planned for Q2 and squeeze that it.

    Currently in The Charity starter kit for Sitefinity there is a implementation of social media widgets including Facebook, Twitter & Flickr the widgets display feeds from those sites.

    All the best,

  • +1 for login with Facebook
  • Thanks for the info Stanislav.  Do you know if it possible for me to overwrite the Facebook DLLs to use a newer version of the toolkit?
  • Hello Jeff,

    The currently used dll`s re version 4.0.2. Changing them should only affect your facebook widget implementations and their communication with Sitefinity. However please make the changes at a test project to avoid problems.

    Please write back if you need further help.

    Kind regards,

  • Unfortunately, changing the DLLs affect more than just my widget implementation. In fact, changing them crashes the entire site. See my error below. I am a little confused why Sitefinity would be tightly coupled to this Facebook C# SDK version when it doesnt even make use of it.

  • Hi Jeff,

    Sorry for misleading you. Sitefinity really needs Facebook.Web.dll with its current version to operate. Facebook connector is available for Sitefinity 3.7 and Sitefinity 4 currently don`t have all features of 3.7 available. We are adding them with each release.

  • Has anyone managed to upgrade the SDK to the correct version without the whole site crashing????
    Rob
  • Roberto, I managed to get this to work by downloading the source code for the FB SDK v4.2, changing the assembly information to "4.0.2" and recompiling it in Visual Studio. In essence, I was tricking Sitefinity to use a newer version. This worked for a while, but not anymore. The FB SDK is so far from what it used to be at v4.0.2 that Facebook integration with Sitefinity v4 just isn't possible anymore. A Telerik rep said that they are planning on fixing this but I haven't noticed it make it into a release version yet.
  • We are needing login w/ facebook functionality in a sitefinity custom module. Is this something that will help? www.sitefinity.com/.../sitefinity-connector-for-facebook

    I've done it in a dnn module w/ the fb javascript sdk, but haven't made the tie back to the server side that way.
  • When implementing the External STS with Sitefinity CMS on the project, the platform shows a message that says that the file OAuthLoginForm.ascx. does not exist. I would like to know if I need to change the file path or if I have a Project version that is not the correct one. This is the link I used to download the project:github.com/.../Sitefinity-External-STS-Integration.
