Login to your Facebook account, to which you want JV-PM to post updates.

3

Click on "My Apps" - "Add a New App" button

Provide a name for the app, give it an email address for communication, and click on "Create App ID". You may be asked to submit a captcha challenge in the next screen!

5

In the next screen, click on "Settings - Basic" menu item to the left

6

Provide your site url (without http and https) in the App domains field. For example, customer.jv-extensions.com, if your site is http://customer.jv-extensions.com. If your site is http://www.abc.com, then provide abc.com as the value in App domain field.

7

Choose a Category for the app

8

Provide the value for "Privacy URL" and "Terms of Service URL". These are the URLs on your site.

Choose an App Icon, and provide your email in the "Contact Email" box.

Now click on "Settings" menu link under "Facebook Login" in sidebar. Provide the value for "Valid OAuth redirect URIs". The Callback URL mentioned in the JV-PM edit account page is the redirect URI that you must use. Please make sure that the redirect URI or callback URL does NOT end with & when you provide the value.

Ensure that you set the following values, and dont forget to save the settings after that:

  • Client OAuth Login to "Yes"
  • Web OAuth Login to "Yes"
  • Enforce HTTPS to "Yes"
  • Embedded Browser OAuth Login to "Yes"
  • Login from Devices to "No"

The next step is to  submit the app for review with Facebook.
