    Unhappy Facebook PHP Coding Issue

    Hi. When I request data from facebook, it returns it in a jSON response like this:

    "data": [
    "installed": 1,
    "read_stream": 1,


    Next I use "$fb_response = json_decode($requests, true);", which has worked for all other Facebook requests.

    I try to store the field "read_stream" data in my array-
    $user["read_stream"] = $fb_response->{"read_stream"};

    but I can't get it to work. What am I doing wrong?

    I think you're using json_decode the wrong way and expecting an object.

    Try $fb_response['read_stream']; instead of using the -> object thing.

    Many useful explanations and tips including: Cannot modify headers - already sent, The IE if (isset($_POST['submit'])) bug explained, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING, debugging tips and much more!
