Grant SFC permissions not working (5 posts)

    When clicking Grant SFC permissions, I get the following error from Facebook "An error occurred. Please try again later."

    I have completed a Facebook app and have input AppID and App Secret and the plugin is showing the correct feed, but when I try to grant permissions, I get this error and it is frustrating.

    This usually means that you setup your Facebook Application
    incorrectly. It's easy to fix though.

    First, go here: https://developers.facebook.com/apps

    There you will find your Facebook Application. Click the "Edit
    Settings" link on the Settings area.

    The basic underlying problem here is that you have the wrong values on
    this page. The "Site URL" needs to be the *exact URL of your site*.
    And this does mean *exact*. Whatever shows up in the Browser URL bar
    is what you *MUST* put here. It's amazing how many people think their
    website has a "www" in it when it doesn't, for example. Or how people
    just use capital letters wherever the heck they please. These things
    *DO* matter, the values must be EXACTLY correct.

    If you own your own domain name, then you can optionally fill it in on
    the site domain field as well. However, this is not required.

    Fixing that should generally eliminate your problem.

    I have exactly the same problem, but the solution doesn't work for me because there is no 'Site URL' field on my Facebook apps page. I see 'App Domain' but entering my domain in there gives me an error of "not a valid domain".

    OK, I found it: hidden under the 'Website' dialog.
