Do I need a SSL Cert for Ultimate Facebook Plugin

HELLO, I am trying to get Ultimate Facebook to work as a login option and I get this error

Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration.: One or more of the given URLs is not allowed by the App's settings. It must match the Website URL or Canvas URL, or the domain must be a subdomain of one of the App's domains.

In the setup there is an area for a HTTPS URL is this mandatory I am thinking yes and just want to make sure before I buy a dedicated IP and SSL Cert.

    Hi @John

    Welcome to the forums!

    No, an SSL certificate is not required by Ultimate Facebook.

    The only way an SSL certificate would be required (and it would be required by Facebook) is if you have already entered a secure https URL into your FB app.

    As I don't that is the case here, it is more likely that there is simply a discrepancy in the URLs you have entered.

    Please check this thread to ensure that your app's URLs match the way they are shown in the screenshots in the thread:

    Thanks for the reply question do I need to enable the use the App on Facebook section? This seems to be where I have the Canvass URL problem, saying that sandbox mode requires a secure canvas site URL. In the example you sent me it stops setup at Website with Facebook Login

    Hi @John

    Nope, that is not required for it to work in the Ultimate Facebook plugin.

    This seems to be where I have the Canvass URL problem, saying that sandbox mode requires a secure canvas site URL.

    Sandbox mode should be set to "Disabled".

    In the example you sent me it stops setup at Website with Facebook Login

    That is likely because the URLs are improperly formatted for Facebook's requirements. The only fields you need to fill in at Facebook are App Domain and Site URL.

    App Domain must be formatted like so: example.com
    Site URL must be like so: http://example.com

Thank NAME, for their help.
