Social Media Promotion Bug: Facebook Parameters Out of Date


Recommended Posts

So I'm trying to take advantage of the social media promotion / Our Picks feature on my forum, and while Twitter integration is working as intended there is some sort of fatal error preventing me from connecting my community to my Facebook Page. When going through the AdminCP, I'm told to head to Facebook and sign in to grant the following permissions:



However when I click the links to head off-site and onto Facebook, the following error is thrown at me every single time.


Invalid Scopes: manage_pages, publish_pages. This message is only shown to developers. Users of your app will ignore these permissions if present. Please read the documentation for valid permissions at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/facebook-login/permissions

I have done some digging and it turns out that both "manage_pages" and "publish_pages" are actually deprecated Facebook Page parameters since mid-2020, which I am assuming is leading to the errors here.



On May 5, 2020, we released six new Page permissions to replace the manage_pages and publish_pages permissions.

Please visit our V7.0 Blog post, Graph API Changelog, and Pages API Overview for more information.

Classic case of Facebook changing its code every five minutes... but it does mean that IPB's software urgently needs to be updated in order for this feature to work correctly now.

Can we please get this addressed in the next bugfix update?
