I’m always trying to figure out ways to simplify my life so I wanted to find a WordPress plugin that would post my content directly to Facebook. Should be simple enough right?
Well I was trying out Simple Facebook Connect and it of course needs a Facebook application ID & secret to post the data to my Facebook page. So I go to the main developers page, and it comes up without issue. The second I try to click on Apps in the nav bar, I get redirected to Facebook Ads Manager. Huh?
I try coming at this from every different angle, and the results were always the same. I even deactivated my advertising account to see if that would help. Nope. So after digging through the support forum, and digging some more, I finally found a post that turned on the light bulb in my head. The Facebook page in question is a page for a website that is connected to an email address that isn’t associated with a Facebook account.
When I try to login to my personal Facebook account, I can get to the Facebook Apps page and create the application ID with no problem. Would it really have been so hard for FB to throw up an error message or something to let us know what is going on instead of kicking in this perplexing redirect?
