Facebook API Key vs. Access Token?

Facebook API Key vs. Access Token? was created by fader8
Just installed Facebook Connect and followed all the instructions carefully. After creating the app in facebook, I'm not given an API Key. I am given an access token however. Is this the same thing? Did Facebook just rename it or something?

Joomla 1.5.25, CB 1.8rc2, CBSubs 1.2.2, GroupJive 2.5rc, Kunena 1.7.2, php 5.2.5

Would seam Facebook overhauled their developers application, again. The API Key does nothing. It was kept for legacy support. Just put any random string as its value (e.g. 123456) and it'll be ignored.

Thanks Kyle! Appears to work too!

I'm wondering if this FB change is what is keeping my FB Login button from displaying properly? Here's what it looks like:



If not, any suggestions?

Joomla 1.5.25, CB 1.8rc2, CBSubs 1.2.2, GroupJive 2.5rc, Kunena 1.7.2, php 5.2.5

No, that would be a CSS problem. Notice your login button is styled. Your template appears to have CSS that changes all input buttons. Please provide a URL to your site where the issue can be seen and can make some suggest CSS changes for you.

Thanks for that advice Kyle. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. The new site in progress is here:
fader8.com/grace/

I'm not in love with any button styling the template's providing. So if defeating it is the most robust solution, I'm game.

Joomla 1.5.25, CB 1.8rc2, CBSubs 1.2.2, GroupJive 2.5rc, Kunena 1.7.2, php 5.2.5

The culprit appears to be the following.

grace/t3-assets/css8acc1.css

Am not sure why, but FBC CSS is inside that file, which is not where the CSS is actually stored. FBC has its own CSS file. At any rate on line 17 in the above file is where the background image is specified, which has a space in the path.
background-image: url("/grace/components/com_comprofiler/plugin/user/plug_cbfacebookconnect/ images/button.png ");

Notice the space before "images/...". Simply remove the space and the button will now display properly.
