    I'm beginning to think that knowing what "Client ID" and "Client Secret" are limited to folks in their local terrorist cell - no one from the outside shall ever know what they mean let alone how to easily get them.

    What's the big deal developers? These 2 pieces of information are needed to make a number of WP plugins work and none of the developers has any idea how to get them - or at least show us how to get them.

    How about some help developers? How on earth can we get these 2 pieces of critical information from Google Cloud?

    Configure google account, you need to create Client ID & Client secret from the API section 'Google API Console' the URL is
    https://code.google.com/apis/console/

    I am sorry but I can't see why following their instructions, won't work for you. My problem was in my first try was I didn't correctly copy the redirect URL from the dashboard into Google...can't say that's what happened here. Are you familiar with zoom.us? It's a screen sharing that has perfect viewing, maybe sometime we could arrange to do that?

    I just had to do this and was mighty confused.
    But I was on the wrong screen.

    (Now there may be a step before if you have never done this.. )

    • Have Web Application selected
    • Enter the base url and click enter
    • Then click Edit Setting's and enter the redirect link that the plugin gives you on screen

    It was that last step I originally missed. But that's where you need to put the redirection email provided.

    Let me know if this helps.
