Support » Plugin: Facebook » [Plugin: Facebook] Social Publisher Error: An error occurred with Scott Wyden Imagery (API).

  • Resolved Andrew.Bloom


    When I go into the WordPress Facebook plugin settings (after I have created my Facebook app) and try to Link your Facebook account to your WordPress account to enable.

    This is the error I received:

    An error occurred with Scott Wyden Imagery (API). Please try again later.

    I noticed this issue was mentioned on other posts and updated to your dev version but I am still getting this error.

    Last night I easily setup this app on another website just fine, maybe this is happening due to a server setting, PHP version, or something else?

    Any suggestions?

  • Is it wrong of me to find it funny that Facebook hasn’t fixed this silly problem yet?

    I knew it! Scott Wyden is behind a FaceBook conspiracy to make all plugins not work with WordPress!

    Stop the presses!

    HAHA – It’s a cunning plot

    Scott has struck again on my site.

    On mine too …..

    I feel bad Facebook can’t get this figured out

    Lol, I have just installed this plugin and I’m having this error with “Scott”. Good that Google works… I’m lucky.

    I’m not sure Facebook is listening anymore

    I’ve figured out how to fix this error.

    Apparently a very simple fix (for me and hopefully you too).

    All you need to do is go to:

    Find your app you created, click Edit Settings, and make sure that you have App on Facebook checked. Then enter your domain and a link to https:// (even if you don’t have one, just enter it in).

    Then my plugin started working.

    Now, I do not remember the instructions telling you to do this. In fact it does not. If you see “nux_app_settings.png” and it does not show or say to do this:

    Step 2: Set up the App

    Next, set up your app so that it looks like the settings below. Make sure you set your app’s icon and image, too. If you already have an app and skipped Step 1, you can view your app settings by going to

    Here are for some recommendations for filling this form out, based on where this plugin is installed.

    Once I do the plugin works. Also its worth mentioning to get the developer version from their GitHub, since it fixes some other problems (

    If you are still having issues, let me know. I’ll try to recreate my steps for you.

    Hi Andrew,

    tried your thoughts but I stil habe the same issue.

    @andrew Bloom Thanks for your suggestion, but that isn’t how the FB App works, and doing that really wouldn’t fix the problem.

    The “App on Facebook” does not need to be checked to use the plugin, and in fact it probably should not be checked for most cases.

    Must’ve been WPBook then.

    I was getting frustrated with this plugin so I installed WPBook and followed their instructions. It didn’t work so re-enabled this plugin, and it magically starts working.

    Possibly the one step that could’ve mattered was Granting Permissions for the page. That step is missing in this plugin, but it probably does so automatically?

    Maybe that is why people are having issues?

    Sorry for my round-about way of explanation.

    This worked for me.

    You only have to deactivate it for the first authorization (Your galleries are still available after reactivation!). Post on your fan page works even with activated NextGen Gallery Plugin.

    NextGen Gallery is the culprit, eh?

    I can’t remember if I disabled that or not.

    Thanks for the info bonnz!

    Turns out it is NextGEN Gallery – and the fix is in the works!
