Step 1: Create a Facebook App

1. Login to your Facebook account.

3. If you don’t have Facebook Developer Account you should register it before creating an Application. Click on the top right blue button (Register / Get Started), read the Privacy Policy and Terms. If you accept it set the option “Yes” and click on the [Next] button.

Select your country, insert your phone number and confirm it and click on the [Done] button.

4. Use the top right [My Apps] menu to start creating Facebook App. Next, click on the [Ceate App] button.

5. Choose the “Consumer” option and click on the [Next] button for further configuration.

To get the Redirect URI, go to the Dashboard > wpDiscuz > Settings > Social Login and Share admin page (Instagram section):

3. On the same Basic Display > Basic Display page, scroll down and find the “App review for Instagram Basic Display” section. Here you’ll need to click on the “Add to submission” button for both permissions shown in the screenshot.
