Q. I am using "Send Dialog" to send Invites using TechjoomlaAPI Facebook plugin. But no matter how many contacts I select from the imported contacts, only first selected contact is shown in "To" field when I am redirected to send dialog
A:Ā  The facebook API plugin lets you select as many of your contacts as you want to send invitations to. But when you get to the facebook screen for sending a message, only one contact is listed in the To: field. This is because Facebook has removed the functionality to send group message via API. In Invitex version 2.4 onwards, there is an option in backend "TechjoomlaAPI Facebook, plugin",which allow you to choose the action to be taken,i.e. either you can send messages to user using Send Dialog, or you can Post on their wall. After,the changed behaviour of Facebook send dialog we recommend you to use the "Posting On Users Wall" feature.


Q.Getting "oauth Timestamp_refused" While Using Techjoomlaapi Linkedin Plugin.

A:This means that your system clock is not in sync with our API servers by 5 minutes or more. The timestamp LinkedIn indicates the range of times we would be expecting from you in your oauth_timestamp field. LinkedIn also returns the time to you in the body of the error message. While the timeĀ LinkedIn take for an oauth_timestamp is to be in epoch seconds,Ā LinkedIn return to you epoch milliseconds just to confuse you. Simple division will get you back to seconds. We recommend using a stable NTP server to keep your clock in sync with LinkedIn.


Q. On using techjoomlaapi yahoo plugin, getting "oauth_problem=timestamp_refused&oauth_acceptable_timestamps=1357151958-1357153158" error on step 2

A:The "timestamp_refused" means that the time on your server is not correct. If your serversā€™s clock is more than 10 minutes skewed from the OAuth Serverā€™s clock, your timestamp will be rejected.. Once you fix the timestamp your calls should work fine. Make sure your computerā€™s clock is synchronized to a good time source and ntpd is running. You can read more about this here:
