Hi guys,

I have created an app

I have set my page tab to my website to draw in my iframe.

I am not trying to get the users facebook id, I am using the following

if (!empty($_REQUEST['signed_request'])) {
  $signedRequest = $_REQUEST['signed_request'];
  list($sig, $payload) = explode('.', $signedRequest, 2);
  $data = json_decode(base64_decode(strtr($payload, '-_', '+/')), true);
  print_r( $data); 

Open in new window

this does not contain the users id as from what I read they need to authorise  the app? how do I go about doing this. NOTE:  I am using a fangate page hence the signed_request method
