Pligg Support

I have installed the facebook login plugin. Users can register succesfully but they do not get the facebook profile pic in their avatar. How can I solve this problem? Thanks in advance

Possible Answers

    To import your Facebook profile image as your Pligg avatar, you will need to select the "Set Facebook Photo as Avatar" checkbox when you land on the Facebook registration page for Pligg (http://pligg.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/facebook-login-page-510x460.png). The Facebook avatar import feature only happens one time, when you first connect an account to Facebook. It does not fetch any updates beyond that, so if you change avatars on Facebook it won't update it on your Pligg website.

    If you have checked that box and you still an issue with it not importing an avatar when you first connect the account, then there may be a permissions issue with writing the image file to your avatars directory. Try changing the CHMOD permissions for the /avatars directory and the directories beneath it to 777. Another possible cause could be some form of your web server not supporting standard functions or having restrictive security settings. In some cases we may be able to provide additional support to assist you. Leave a reply if the suggestions above aren't able to help you out and I will try to follow up with an email.

    I believe it copies it into a folder on your server. Check the readme file that came with it. You may need to give that folder the proper write permissions.
