SocialEngine 4.8 and broken Facebook login

This should be useful for SocialEngine based communities.


Since Facebook rolled out new API version Facebook login got broken. There is a quick workaround for this

1. open file application/libraries/Facebook/Base.php


2. look for method getAccessTokenFromCode (it should be at line ~596)


3. Replace lines

$response_params = array();
parse_str($access_token_response, $response_params);

with one line:

$response_params = json_decode($access_token_response, true);
