So it is OK the way it is. If I find a site (other than Heroku) to be the mediator, what do I need to put there - a php or similar application ?
Do you have an example of such ? I need the usual - to post results of a game...

Edit: I tried to create a new app in FB without asking for a host, but I don't get the category and site url like in your example...

edit: I have found the site URL in this tab "Website with Facebook Login" but no category

Edit: I put the same address of heroku, now I get a simple error message saying " An error occurred, try again later"

EDIT: Changed the site address to be with www and now it ask to login..... AND it works !
Thank you Njdude !

Now to the question of deleting the cache for a new login process, by code.
I listed the files in File.DirInternalCache and got these:

webviewCacheChromiumStaging
webviewCacheChromium

Deleting them left the second file and didn't do the required effect.

Does anybody know how it can be done ?

WebView not staying displayed with code as shown

So, I have the app created, and have the id/secret/redirect setup,
but I am not getting expected results when I run through.


Had to change this line from

B4X:
If Url.StartsWith("http://m.facebook.com/login.php") Then
to

B4X:
If Url.StartsWith("https://m.facebook.com/dialog")
to get the webview to stay visible


And the url returned when it is all done looks like this (modified to keep this from actually being used by someone to post on my FB account!)

B4X:
http://iii.m.webs.com/site/mobile?dm_path=%2Findex.htm&fw_sig_tier=0&fw_sig_url=http://iii.love.com/&fw_sig_api_key=522b0eedffc1374949085nf3a1&fw_sig_premium=0&fw_sig_social=0&fw_sig_permission_level=0&fw_sig_access_token=e37c25c468ebaafadfdfoj848e524fc7&fw_sig_time=1370170181271&fw_sig_is_admin=0&fw_sig_permissions=none&fw_sig_session_key=517c5f991daf4e64adc2c0625dfjojeiojer2c89fa8607a9888f6f0f2be21-93242559&fw_sig_site=93242559&fw_sig=fbd96cf2d59doijdfdfc0139a5295216&fb_sig_network=fw#3132
Did something big change? Or did I mess up the application process?

I put in my site url in the Website with Facebook Login, and then put that in the app domains on the basic info page... and that was about it.

Post in specific FB Page

It's possible to customize this sample in order to upload a post with Text and Image to a specific Facebook page?

Is it possible to upload text together with the picture and have a link in it as well?
I would like my user to be able to post "Just made a new highscore in appname" and if other people click on it, it links to Google Play.

This example did not work for me. I tried to change all the "http://" references into "https://". Then it worked.

Facebook changes the API frequently and without warning, I suggest you use one of the FB libraries available.
