Do I need any activation codes?

You will need some access tokens and keys from social networks, which you are going to use. That keys will confirm you rights to post something to chosen social networks accounts. No other codes for activation or something like this can be asked.

I try to set up Pinterest API, but something is going wrong…

First of all, read very ATTENTIVELY the instruction how to set up Pinterest API. It needs two steps of authorization.

Check that your Pinterest app is created on the right way. Check Site URL and Redirect URIs fields. The site url is the link to your web-site. The redirect uri should be a link to admin dashboard page with Pinterest API settings, e.g. https://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=lemonade_sna_pinterest2. It should start with HTTPS://.

If ssl is not setted up for your site, at the moment, when you are redirected back to admin dashboard through https protocol, you will probably get a message from your browser that a connection to your website is insecure. Just add a secure excerption an continue work. You also may be asked to re-login to the site.

Some problems can be caused temporarily by Pinterest. Everytime read attentively an error message which Pinterest sends.

If your app is old, sometimes creating of a new app helps.
