[resolved] Facebook business page (3 posts)

    I set up a business page on Facebook and tried to create an app for the interface for the plugin. When I log into the Facebook developer page it re-directs to the business page I set up and there is no app create button that I can find. I saw the note on the Facebook instructions about this issue but I am not clear what needs to be done here. I don't have another Facebook account and want any posts on our WP site to be posted to this business page on Facebook. From the description of the plugin it states that it can post to business pages. Are there clear instructions somewhere on how to create the Facebook app and get the required ID in this situation? thanks.

    The answer is in the FAQ:

    3. Question: I can't create an app on developers.facebook.com/apps. When I am trying to enter that page it redirects me back to my account? What should I do?

    Answer: Facebook “Business” or “Advertising” accounts can’t manage apps. This is an unavoidable Facebook limitation. Only real user accounts are able to create and manage apps.

    Please login to Facebook as a personal account to be able to create app. You will need to add your personal Facebook account as “Administrator” to your page. But don't worry, all posts will be made as your "Business" name, not from your personal account. Association of your personal account with that business page won't be seen by anyone other then you.
