Facebook & Twitter App Signin Integration

APG vNext supports sign in Integration with Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
Enabling Google Login is easy, as you just have to check the box in the AdminCP (checked by default).
For Facebook and Twitter integration, you have to first create an app on their developer sites in order to get a key and secret pair. Click on Get your key in each section to create your apps.
If you've never created these apps before, it may not be very obvious what settings you need to turn on on their developer sites to enable integration with AGP vNext.
See below for information:

For Facebook: see the screen shot:

The settings above are all you need.

For Twitter: specify Callback URL

All settings are very self explanatory, but make sure you enter an arbitrary URL as the Callback URL. It can be anything that starts with your Forum URL.
For example, I use http://www.aspplayground.net/community/test.ashx (which doesn't exist) as my Callback URL.

I'm setting up a new forum and created a new Facebook app and added App ID and secret OK.
When I try to login via Facebook, I get this -
[image]res://ieframe.dll/info_48.png[/image]                The webpage cannot be found HTTP 400                     
                                     Most likely causes:
    There might be a typing error in the address.If you clicked on a link, it may be out of date.
                                     What you can try:                                     [image]res://ieframe.dll/bullet.png[/image]                              Retype the address.                                                                   [image]res://ieframe.dll/bullet.png[/image]                              [link=javascript:history.back();]Go back to the previous page.[/link]Go back to the previous page.                                                                   [image]res://ieframe.dll/bullet.png[/image]                              Go tothe main site and look for the information you want.                                                                   [link=res://ieframe.dll/http_400.htm][image]res://ieframe.dll/up.png[/image][/link]                              More information                                  <ID id="moreInformation">More information</ID>                              This error (HTTP 400 Bad Request) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the web server, but the webpage could not be found because of a problem with the address.
For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.

This is the URL - http://www.0zcelica.com/sociallogin.aspx?login=facebook&ReturnUrl=/
Any ideas?

It's hard to say without seeing your screenshot. Can you post one here?
