    Hi there,

    Im trying to add my "facebook admin" in the social page of the Yoast Seo page ! But when i press the button "Add facebook admin" im getting the following error:

    Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access /wp-admin/admin.php on this server.

    is this because of an FTP setting ? I kept all my settings by default in http://FTP...so i wonder..Can any 1 help me ?

    I am having a similar problem with the "Add Facebook Admin" function. I click the button, its processes a few seconds, and then I'm taken to my 404 page.

    I clicked the "Use a Facebook App as Admin" and I'm taken to the typical Facebook page where I give permission to Yoast. But I don't want to use an app.

    Anyone have any advice for using the "Add Facebook Admin" function?

    WordPress version: 3.4.2
    WordPress SEO version: 1.2.8.6

    Whenever I click on "Add Facebook Admin", it sends me to a page on my site that it cannot find.

    http://manadeprived.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=wpseo_social&key=key&userid=userid&userrealname=userrealname&link=link#_=_

    Note: I have replaced actual values with [name of value].

    If I shorten the link, it works.

    http://manadeprived.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=wpseo_social&key=key&userid=userid&userrealname=userrealname

    Have other users run into this problem?

    I'm having the same problem. Using manadeprived's idea, I SEEM to have added a user as an admin, but I'd rather be using an app and can't seem to make that work

    Same problem here, got the 404 message when trying to add FB admin...I removed my name from the end of the URL string, but now the Facebook admins is X. Not sure if that's correct.

    Would be nice to get some attention, after all this is a crucial part of the plugin, and with it not being functional, the whole plugin in nearly worthless...

    I removed this &link=http://www.facebook.com/sbehvac from the browser address and pressed enter now my name is setup and working.

    Cant get the app to work instead

    Thank you ricky7622, for your helpful solution.

    This workaround takes care of adding a Facebook Admin. But when trying to add an App as admin, it won't work - just shows a blank page.

    Has anyone found a way to add an app as admin?

    I am having the same problem. When you press "Use a Facebook App as Admin" it doesn't work. Nothing new load on the screen and there is no pop-up or anything.

    I wish there was more support here...
