but when i try to authorize autotweet I get the following:
Warning: require_once(/home/user/public_html/facebook_auth_app/facebook-php-sdk/facebook.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/user/public_html/facebook_auth_app/index.php on line 17
Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/home/user/public_html/facebook_auth_app/facebook-php-sdk/facebook.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/user/public_html/facebook_auth_app/index.php on line 17
Something is still wrong, I checked about 6 times to be sure my parameters were correct. When I click authorized Facebook now says:
You must call AutoTweet NG Connector from AutoTweet component backend in Joomla, clicking on the Authorization Button, or
You must define MY_APP_ID, and MY_APP_SECRET in the Facebook App index.php.
The Standalone Facebook authorization App is an optional SSL stand-alone site to create your Own Facebook App. If you are unsure, do not try to implement Facebook App with Canvas Page. A Facebook App with Canvas Page does not provide additional features for social publishing, and it's more complex to configure.
I am actually using a secure connection, when i tried doing it without the canvas i got as far as to authorise and received a token but clicking validate threw an error
I installed the stable version of Autotweet(7.9.0), and still have that canvas error error, am gonna try regular method like you suggested
