FB Plugin version 4.3.0.865747

Attempting to "Create Collection..." in Facebook -- nothing happens.

Right-clicking on the FB collection header in the left tab and selecting "Edit Settings" gives



Going to the Plugin Manager I see



If I click "Reload Plugin" the display goes back to green "Installed and running", but when I try to create a collection nothing happens and it goes back to this state.

The diagnostic file contains the following


Plug-in error log for plug-in at: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.3\Facebook.lrplugin
**** Error 1
An error occurred while attempting to load this plug-inâ€TMs portion of the Export dialog.
?:0: attempt to index upvalue '?' (a nil value)


Is this going to be fixed in 4.4?

Is there an updated version of the plugin available for download?

In case you are not aware, Jeffrey Friedl also has a facebook plugin. It may be worth a try if this problem is sufficiently bothersome...

Jim,
You can download the 4.4 RC here and see if you still get the same trouble -- http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/li...

I'm also having this problem. Will d/l the 4.4 RC and keep my fingers crossed. I'm using Jeffrey Friedl upload program for Facebook.

I started having the export crash about a wee ago, running 4.3, I installed the 4.4 rc and still same problem.
As soon as I touch the export button under File, Lightroom immediately crashes.
Any Ideas??
Thanks,
Butch

I usually use jfriedl's plugin, but Lightroom crashes before I get a choice.

Sorry, that looks like a different problem. I didn't see a LR crash, just the FB plugin didn't work. I suggest you start a new thread describing your problem in detail and any steps you've taken to troubleshoot it.

A further discovery related, If I use shft,ctrl,E, I can get to the export box. But cannot use the jfriedl plugin or others Except Export to Hard Drive.
