I am trying to add the Facebook login to my site. I figured out how to add the app on Facebook and reference it in my code. When i test this, it pulls up the Facebook window, allows me to login, and changes the, "Login with Facebook" icon to, "Log Out". So it appears to be working somewhat, but I am unable to get the data from the login. I looked up tutorials to learn how to collect the Display Name, Gender, etc. I added a few alerts to the javascript to see what I could see, but I'm at a dead end. The call to the OnLogin method never seems to fire, so i can't see my response object values.
Also, I am using my actual APP_ID, I just removed it from the sample code below.

Thanks for any advice.

<script src="scripts/jquery-1.8.0.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="scripts/all.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$("document").ready(function () {
// Initialize the SDK upon load
appId: 'My Actual ID', // App ID
channelUrl: '//' + window.location.hostname + '/channel', // Path to your Channel File
scope: 'id,name,gender,user_birthday,email', // This to get the user details back from Facebook
status: true, // check login status
cookie: true, // enable cookies to allow the server to access the session
xfbml: true // parse XFBML
// listen for and handle auth.statusChange events
FB.Event.subscribe('auth.statusChange', OnLogin);

// This method will be called after the user login into facebook.
function OnLogin(response) {
if (response.authResponse) {
FB.api('/me?fields=id,name,gender,email,birthday', LoadValues);

//This method will load the values to the labels
function LoadValues(me) {
if ( {
document.getElementById('displayname').innerHTML =;
document.getElementById('FBId').innerHTML =;
document.getElementById('DisplayEmail').innerHTML =;
document.getElementById('Gender').innerHTML = me.gender;
document.getElementById('DOB').innerHTML = me.birthday;
document.getElementById('auth-loggedin').style.display = 'block';
