    Shristi: Very good job.

    I ran into Oauth problem and was able to solve it … I am posting the problem and solution here.

    Facebook (and I assume others) signup and signin were not working with the Oauth. After signup or signin, I would get error: “Error: /api/auth/facebook/[object%20Object] is not a valid path.” But if I went back to my base URL of localhost:3000, I would be logged in. So the problem was that authentication was successful, but the redirect to landing page was not occurring.

    I found the solution here:
    In \modules\users\server\controllers\users\users.authentication.server.controller.js (note in the new meanjs the directory structure has changed), replace the return part of code below:
    exports.oauthCallback = function (strategy) {

    return res.redirect(redirectURL || sessionRedirectURL || ‘/’);



    return res.redirect(typeof redirectURL == ‘string’ ? redirectURL : sessionRedirectURL || ‘/’);

    Now after signup or signin the landing page appears.

    Hi, I am trying to use google maps api. Whenever i try to do this
    var mapOptions = {
    center: new google.maps.LatLng(37.7831,-122.4039),
    zoom: 12,
    mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.TERRAIN
    $ = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById(‘map’), mapOptions);

    It throws me the error “Reference error: google not found”

    Now i tried to add the script in my view.html just above the section tag like this :

    but this doesn’t seem to fix the problem either. Also where is the index.html page which includes all the scripts and everything?

    P.S I am using webstorm

    HI I tried following your code and tried to login using my face book account. Now when i try to do that it throws me the following error “Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration.: One or more of the given URLs is not allowed by the App’s settings. It must match the Website URL or Canvas URL, or the domain must be a subdomain of one of the App’s domains.”

    P.S. I have created the app_id and app_secret.

    Any help is appreciated.
