Problem with Revive Old Post plugin


I saw your good blog post rounding up some plugins at:

I have downloaded and tried to get working the free revive old post plugin.
I got it integrated with Twitter easily but having real problems with Facebook. I want to check it works with FB before buying the Pro version of the plugin.
When you go to connect FB it pops up instructions which unfortunately don't match the current layout of FB and my wife and I are very confused.
I have tried to follow the instructions to the best of my ability and create an app.
However I end up having to fill out all sorts of fields on FB that don't seem at all relevant to just integrating with a WP plugin and more attuned to creating a public app for sale - eg it required me to create icons, privacy policy and then submit for review. I ended up giving up when it wanted screen shots of the app working in development mode.

Where am I going wrong and how can I get this WP plugin to work with FB? I would love to have an automated solution for sharing posts to Twitter, FB and linkedin. I have written to the plugin author but no reply as of yet.

    Hey Dale,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    I've attached a couple screenshots to illustrate getting past that first part of the app creation, after doing that then follow steps 4 through 8 of the Revive old post instructions:

    4. Once you arrive on the app dashboard, copy your App ID and App Secret in the fields on the right
    5. Go on Settings tab from the left sidebar menu add the contact email and click on Add Platform and select Website
    6. Copy/Paste this url : into App Domains and Site URL fields and Save
    7. Go on Status & Review tab and set your app live from the top-right switch.
    8. Now everything is done, click on Authorize App button.

    With that said, have you tried out our Ultimate Facebook plugin? It's a similar setup for authorizing the FB app and has a ton of FB sharing/auto posting and other features :slight_smile: you can check it out here:

    Hope that helps and let us know if you have any further questions.

    All the best,
