Reviews

Error message no one could correct

I tried installing it, because of the high rating. I made the facebook app but the plugin wouldn’t authorize it. The plugin author said it was the hosting company’s problem, and the hosting company said they needed more information from the author. I never got any help from them.
Their own documentation said what the error message might mean, but said simply, “fix it.”
Not for someone who isn’t a coding guru. (Which I’m not.)
