WPBook Lite
[resolved] Authorization required (3 posts)

    Every few hours (suddenly) WP Book Lite asks for reautorization. I checked the suggestion and in my case the app on developer.facebook.com has the setting Remove offline_access permission already on enabled.

    Please help? The posting still works...

    So when you generate a new access token, and visit your WPBook Lite settings page, take the access token it has given you and check it here:

    http://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug

    This will tell you the token's expiration information and what user and app it is associated to.

    If that still says it expires in two hours, you could try de-authoring the application (in Facebook go to account settings, apps, and remove all permissions from the app).

    Then re-add it.

    Seems Facebook sometimes keeps issuing short-lived tokens when it should give long-lived ones.

    If the token debugger gives you a "token could not be decoded" error, check you settings. Are you requesting an access token for the correct FB profile ID?

    It must be an individual's profile ID, not a page ID or group ID.

    @mippie Try 1.5.

    If you are still getting short-lived access tokens, you may need to deauthorize the application from your Facebook account and then re-add it.
