    Have installed WPBook and created a facebook app as per WPBook.net instructions.

    2 issues - 1. I cannot see my app on my personal facebook page. 2. When I go directly to the URL: https://apps.facebook.com/annewhite I get this message:

    Unable to connect

    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at http://www.annewhite.ca.

    The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
    If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
    connection.
    If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

    my blog is at http://www.annewhite.ca

    Facebook app ID is: 124728304274406
    Facebook profile ID is: 699995106

    Help?

    Not sure what you mean by problem 1, are you talking about streaming or something else? I'm pretty sure once problem 2 is fixed so will problem 1.

    As for problem 2 there is a 97% chance this is a set up problem. Most likely with your canvas url inside Facebook or the WPBook settings (in WordPress) from the error looks like you may need a "http" in front of your url.

    Hello - thanks for responding. http is in front of the URL - in both WordPress and Facebook. Does this provide more info that could be useful?

    I was able to get your app to work by going to http://apps.facebook.com/annewhite/ instead of https://apps.facebook.com/annewhite/ If you want to use https make sure your site has a certificate installed otherwise remove that from your settings.

    Note: You shouldn't post your secret here, Facebook will let you create a new one so you may want to do that :)
