Support » Plugins » [Plugin: Social Connect] Facebook Connect Error

  • Social connect works fine for eveything but facebook for some reason. Here’s what I get in the popup box that should be the Facebook Connect Authorization window.

       "error": {
          "type": "OAuthException",
          "message": "redirect_uri isn't an absolute URI. Check RFC 3986."

    Any suggestions?

  • I too just setup a fresh install of wordpress 3.1.2 hosted on godaddy. i then precoded to install the Social Connect plugin and try it out. I get this same error when trying to use facebook. However the others work fine. any help with this would be great.

    Weird, I just noticed my Facebook connect isn’t working either and I am getting the same error and it used to work fine. I also get the same error message but only when I disable one of my plugins called “Collapsing Categories” otherwise I get this one:

    “error”: {
    “type”: “OAuthException”,
    “message”: “Invalid redirect_uri: Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration.”

    Did any of you find the answer to this? I’ve just come across the error.

    Thank you in advance.

    LOL, is very easy to fix:

    Add your site url to your app settings:

    Settings->Web Site->Site URL

    Double post, sorry.

    I’m having this same problem.
    Funny thing is it worked yesterday, so…?

    Could this have to do with FB adding a trailing slash to url;
    while WP trims it?

    I tried putting my url in in multiple ways, on my site as well as FB, making sure each was exactly the same. Nothing worked, thus my initial question above.

    I’ve found that Social Connect works, as long as I’ve disabled WordSocial.
    WordSocial works regardless.

    SC uses ones own API Key and App Secret;
    While WS code has the developers App ID, API Key and App Secret in the code as to allow that app to post on ur behalf.

    So, if you have both these enabled, therein lies ur problem.
    Guess I’ll either try to re-code WS, or find another plugin to post to FB.

    Any other solutions…?


    today i installed Add Link to Facebook plugin my home site is on localhost server and no matter what i put as redirect url nothing is working my site url for app is
    Site URL=
    this dont work in the redirect url the only problem i get so far is this redirect_uri isn’t an absolute URI. Check RFC 3986

    any help appreciated



    you must to change facebook app setting. go on

    on the right => setting/ Web site / url and site name.

    good luck 🙂

    @hank22077 I have the same set up as you. What were you able to work out? I really want to use WordSocial and Social Connect together. They serve different functions, but I suspect you’re right about the conflict on Facebook APIs.
