There have been some recent changes to the Facebook API that may break existing items using it. These items need to be updated as soon as possible.
Edit: Because of delays in sending the email promised below, we have extended the target completion date from 18 August to 1 September 2014.
- Existing items using the Facebook API must be updated to use Version 2.0 of the API by 1 September 2014 or they will be soft disabled. Please note we will be notifying all authors of affected items by e-mail within 7 days of posting this announcement. We will also notify any author whose item is consequently soft disabled after 1 September.
- New items using the Facebook API will not be accepted unless they use Version 2.0 of the API, with immediate effect.
- Items designed to work with Version 2.0 of the API key should have a tag of 'facebook 2.0 api'.
On 30 April 2014, Facebook released Version 2.0 of their API. Although Version 1.0 will continue to work until 30 April 2015, apps created after 30 April 2014 will not be able to make calls to it. They must use Version 2.0. You can read more here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/changelog
Buyers purchasing an item from CodeCanyon that uses Version 1.0 of the Facebook API, will not be able to use it. As the item will be registered with Facebook after 30 April 2014, it will only work with Version 2 of the API.
If you are the author of an item that uses the Facebook API, you need to make sure it is updated to work with Version 2.0 of the API as soon as possible. If this is not done by 1 September 2014, the item will be soft disabled (and you will be contacted by e-mail) until such time that it has been updated.
Additionally, new items that use the Facebook API will only be accepted if they work with Version 2.0 of the API. New items that only work with Version 1.0 will not be accepted.
To allow us to track items that do work with the version 2.0 of the API, can you please add a ‘facebook 2.0 api’ to items that do work with Version 2.0 of the API. This will also allow buyers to identify whether an item is ‘safe’ to purchase.
