I am trying to implement Facebook Registration / Login on my DotNetNuke 7.4.1 CE website. I installed and enabled the authentication provider under Host Extensions. I created a Facebook App called, set the AppDomain to "", inputed my Contact Email, and set the Site URL to "". Under advanced settings I set the Oauth Redirect urls to "","/login", and "/register". Finally, I made the app live to the public. Under Admin|Extensions I entered the App ID and secret, and enabled it. That should do it, but all I get is an error coming back after I try to login into facebook. IT never even prompts me that my website wants my info.

I have literally been pulling my hair out with this for 5 days! I got Google, Twitter (Except getting email - does anybody know how to use "include_email"?), and Windows Live providers to work fine. Can somebody please point me in the right direction?

In case this isn't clear - are there particular new settings that have to be used when setting up the Facebook application in order for this to work with DNN? The new version of the Facebook API seems to differ from what is documented on DNN, and on videos I have seen.
