Fb, Linked in , Twitter oauth documentation

Hello to all.

I was wondering if there is any documentation/instructions regarding integration of facebook, linkedin and twitter oauth in askbot.

I can see in live setting that some external keys need to be added and that I should create some application in these social networks, but any help would be really helpfull.

Thanx in advance

sounds like a great idea. I'm suffering from the same problems. Askbot looks nice piece of software but in terms of documentation & support there's not much stuff around and that's a bit sad.

I wouldn't exactly agree. I am not sure how long you are member of this community, but regarding support, guys here are really helpful. Regarding documentation, it is the first time I tried to find something that is not well documented. Let's wait for an answer from the development team. Probably there is something explaining this process but we weren't able to find it.

I'm with you mate, that's what I want as well. I personally made 4 questions the last 4 days and I haven't received a single response from anyone around, staff or just member. That's not what I call active community but anyway yeah , let's wait and see. It looks like you've been longer around and probably know more.

Note taken, thanks. How to set up an application in FB, etc seemed self-evident to me, but it could use a doc.

@Evgeny. May be just setting an application is self-evident, or at least you can find some documentation online. But, when things are not working (at least in my case), it is not clear if it is because of a mistake I made during that process or because askbot may have a problem. I mean, in my case now, I am able to login via Twitter and Linkedin. That proves that I have configured correctly these applications? If yes, how come I am not able to share questions? By the way, what is the current status in askbot? Are you able to share questions through Twitter and Linked in?Thank you for your time
