I have tried the Facebook login method from both your site and ours (we are using Askbot version 0.7.39). It appears to be broken again. Note that the Facebook login method worked after we first upgraded to 0.7.39.

Works on our development branch, now testing on 0.7.39 from pypi.

I reset the private key again in Facebook and it works. It seems like every once in a while there is something with Facebook that changes, and the work around sometimes is to set the key. There is no way to log into our system as it is still being tested and is internal only.

Ok, further information. It seems to be "partially" broken. If I'm already logged into Facebook (in another tab, etc.), the Facebook login works fine. If I'm NOT logged in, I get the message that the facebook login is broken. To compare, I tried some of the other login methods such as Linkedin or Google I can be logged out of the others, and when trying to login (or test) I get the opportunity to login. So, for some reason on our installation, when I try Facebook it's not giving me the opportunity to log in. Where do I look in our installation to figure out why Facebook is different?

You are absolutely right, there is an error if a user is logged out of facebook, looking into this.

Is there any progress on this?

I have not received any information since February on this. Is there any progress? Is this fixed in a more recent version?

Will someone please answer this question? Even if it's not going to be fixed, an update would be appreciated.
