I've been trying to get my head around OAuth redirect URI and it makes no sense to me! Can someone please explain to me how it works and how I make my plugin do the thing it should do?
I'm using a Wordpress plugin call External Media and it asked me to create an app. So far so good. I created the app and gave the plugin the key but when I try to give the app the web addess that the site is currently hosted on, it doesn't like it. I was wondering whether or not I needed to create the OAuth redirect URI but I've simpy NO IDEA what one is and what I should be writing in that box.
I've read the documentation several times and it still seems like gibberish and I just want to go lie down in a darkened room.
Also, in your screenshot, you're trying to register a redirect URI in the "Chooser/Saver domains" fields. That field is for a different feature. OAuth redirect URIs should be entered in the "OAuth 2 Redirect URIs" field above it.
Hi Greg, thanks for replying but the question already says I couldn't get my head around the documentation so telling me to read the documentation doesn't help that much.
I was asking whether or not I needed to fill in the OAuth section to utilise the Wordpress plugin that I'm using (https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/external-media/). It needs the Chooser/Saver section but doesn't make any mention of the Oauth section. Is that an oversight on their part?
Apologies if that wasn't helpful! I wasn't sure if you read the OAuth guide in particular, so I wanted to make sure you were aware of it in addition to the normal documentation for the OAuth endpoints themselves.
I can't offer support or guidance on how the Wordpress plugin should be used, but if you do just need to use the Chooser/Saver, you don't need to set or use OAuth redirect URIs at all. (Your original message did ask for help with the latter, so apologies for the confusion there.)
Anyway, if you just need to set Chooser/Saver domains, note that when doing so you should input only the domain part (i.e., not including the protocol or path). So in your case, you should just enter "testing.wellstheatrefestival.org" (or "wellstheatrefestival.org" if you want to allow any subdomain). Hope this helps!
