“Social Network Integrations” Documentation by “WPWeb”

To create a BufferApp App, go and visit: http://bufferapp.com/developers/apps/create.

You need to be logged in to your BufferApp account to be able to access their developer page. So first, login to your BufferApp account and then follow the link above to get to their developer page. This should look similar to the one shown in the image below:


BufferApp Developer Page

Note: When you enter the URL of your website in to the "Callback URL" field, make sure that it does match the URL of your website 100%. This means, if you go to your website and then check the URL in the browser and the URL does look like http://www.domain.com then you need to enter the exact same URL. If your website URL is http://domain.com then you need to enter it that way, without using the www at the front of the name.

When you enter the URL of your website in to the "Website" field, make sure that it does match the URL of your website 100%. If these entries do not completely match the URL of your website, the application won't work and it will show an error message whe you try to connect to the App.

After Creation of BufferApp App, You will redirect to registered application list. See Image Below:

BufferApp Register List

Here you can get Client Id and Client Secret.

Now, Copy the Client Id and Client Secret in to the BufferApp App settings within the Plugin settings page. See image below:

Important: When you copy and paste all the needed IDs and Keys, make sure, that you don't have any empty spaces, either at the beginning nor at the end of these entries. If you have any empty spaces, then the Application won't work and will show an error message when you try to connect to the App.

After you entered the BufferApp Client Id and Client Secret, click on the "Save Changes" button within the plugin's settings page.
