Odd error/advisory message with Facebook oAuth


(Mike Mayer) #1

Just went about setting up Facebook oAuth and got the following message – wondering if this is something I can change, or is this a source code issue?

You are using a display type of ‘page’ in a small browser window or popup. For a better user experience, show this dialog with our JavaScript SDK without specifying an explicit display type. The SDK will choose the best display type for each environment. Alternatively, use display type ‘popup’ if you have special requirements precluding you from using the SDK. This message is only visible to developers of your application.

Nothing we’ve ever seemed to be able to figure out has gotten rid of that message. If you have the fix, happy to hear it.

I suspect it is Facebook being unable to understand a JavaScript single page app.

At any rate there is no real problem and this alert only appears to developers, so safe to ignore.
