When trying to use facebooker according to the Developing facebook platform applications with rails book, in the network_test step you are getting the following error: FBML Error (line 5): illegal tag "body" under "fb:canvas"
It should be caused because you are using the facebooker gem instead of the plugin.
Install the plugin: ruby script/plugin install git://github.com/mmangino/facebooker.git
You want to use the easiest authentication method, in order to add users/permissions to your application.
Install the act_as_authenticated plugin:
script/plugin install http://svn.techno-weenie.net/projects/plugins/acts_as_authenticated
Generate controllers, models and migration:
script/generate authenticated user account
Add necessary user foreign keys in appropriate tables (ie customer in xxx_create_users.rb), plus other fields you may want to use in your user table (ie role):
create table "users", :force => true do |t|
t.column :login, :string
t.column :role, :string, :default => 'C'
add_column :customers, :user_id, :integer
remove_column :customers, :user_id
Run the migration:
rake db:migrate VERSION=xxx
Comment out from app/controllers/account_controller.rb the following:
Add it in the app/controllers/application.rb just under the class declaration.
Add in application.rb (same as above) the following just after the session section:
before_filter :login_required, :except => [:login, :signup, :logout]
Comment out the default redirection after login and put your own (ie customers): in the account_controller.rb, just before
the flash[:notice] = “Logged in successfully”.
Also add the else for the the invalid login:
redirect_back_or_default(:controller => 'customers', :action => 'list')
flash[:notice] = "Logged in successfully"
flash[:notice] = "Invalid Login/Password!"
Change the action in the signup and logout functions in the account_controller.rb file from index to login
Add (optionally) more fields (role) in the signup page (app/views/account/signup.rhtml):
<%= f.select :role, ['A','R','C'] %> Add restrictions for displaying records depending on user logged in, by using the conditions_for_collection of the activescaffold plugin in app/controllers/customers_controller.rb:
['customers.user_id = (?)', current_user.id]
Add a menu page layout in app/views/layouts/_menu.rhtml:
Add the call to the menu partial in the app/views/layouts/application.rhtml, just before the div with id=main :
<%= render :partial => "layouts/menu"%>
