[resolved] Add Link to Facebook needs authorization problem (36 posts)

    I'm trying to set up a site with the Add link plugin, but after following all the steps, I keep getting a "Add Link to Facebook needs authorization" error. Whenever I click on authorise, the page changes to the site home page, and when I go back into the admin page, it says "Add Link to Facebook needs authorization" and so on, round and round again.

    Any ideas on whats causing this issue?

    Please send me the debug information and I will try to find out why this is happening. See the last question in the FAQ for how to.

    Yes I did and you should have the error message 'Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration'. Try the procedure in question E03 of the FAQ to solve this problem.

    Sorry, I didnt get the "Given URL" message. Followed procedure E03 and still getting the error. I can let you have the admin codes to see if there is any issue.

    Hi,
    I am having the same problem. My error message is...

    'Invalid redirect_uri: De opgegeven URL wordt niet toegestaan door de configuratie van de applicatie.'

    I have copied the ID and Secret from the FB app. This seems quite simple so I think it must be the URL..

    I am using

    http://pphdash.info/wp-admin/tools.php?page=add-link-to-facebook/add-link-to-facebook.php.

    I have tried lots of url combinations as the one above seems too long but I think this is whats meant in the FAQ

    Hopefully someone can help

    The correct URL is indicated by the plugin on the yellow box of the settings page.

    i am having the same problem. The problem is the URL indicated by the plugin is invalid according to Facebook. It requests I add http://mysite.com to the fb app, but fb only accteps mysite.com without the http and that is why i am getting this error.

    please help.

    Please be sure to enter the URL indicated by the plugin in the Facebook application Site URL field. The domain field should be empty. Note that there should be a trailing slash, like http://mysite.com/

    If it doesn't work, send me the debug info as explained in the last question of the FAQ.

    I am getting the following error while i press authorize under plugin in wordpress

    Facebook error: Invalid redirect_uri: Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration.

    As per setup guide, I should put my domain name in a Tab Called WEBSITE. But in recent Facebook Developer/Apps page there is no tab called website.

    I put the API ID & APP Secret from Facebook Developer in WordPress Plugin and put my Website URL under "Website With Facebook Login" tab

    See the snapshot of my settings in Facebook Developer page.

    Hi,

    iǘe got the same problem here.
    I created a FB-App but facebook will not accept the given URL.
    Itś a sub-domain which is located at uphero.com

    i try to enter domainname.uphero.com/ in FB and http://domainname.uphero.com but both versions are NOT saved at the FB-App.
    The page leaves white where the summary must be.

    And therefore i will get the 191 auth error when i try to authorize.
    Any ideas?
