Not a developer, just trying to add nearforums to website

May 13, 2013 at 2:22 AM

My website control panel as the option of installing various apps and I'm attempting to install nearforums to use on my website for a forum (hopefully it's a decent one). I just clicked the install button in the Control Panel and it brings up a page to complete. I'm stuck where it asks to input a Facebook Application Id. Is there a FAQ for how to get one of these? I googled this and only found out about how to register as a developer with facebook but I'm assuming there must be one already available as I'm not a developer?

Thanks for any help..

Btw - is this what the forum what nearforums looks like? Can multiple catagories be setup with their own subcatgories for posting messages to? Thanks..

Here you have some info on how to set up a Facebook application, Facebook (OAuth) requires you to create an "application" per each site you want to allow login with.

About how Nearforums looks like, here you have the sample site: You can have multiple categories and multiple forums below each category. You can not nest categories inside categories.

Kind Regards,

Hi Jorge,

Does it allow for quotes & replies? I didn't notice that within the sample one. Also, does the sample not have any catagories set up?

Thanks for the reply and help!

The Facebook application link needs to be updated as to the instructions. I was able to locate the place on Facebook to do it though..
