Vanilla with Facebook login


I've installed Vanilla 2.2.1 and it's awesome. Thanks :)

After all tweaking here and there, I got in to configure Facebook login. Did all the bits in Facebook end and then came back and put my "Application ID", "Application Secret" and "Site Url". However, when I try to login to Vanilla via FB, I get an error message similar to this,

"error": {
"message": "Invalid redirect_uri: Can't Load URL",
"type": "OAuthException",
"code": 191,
"fbtrace_id": "EUBpfN8UFNq"

It's coming from the Facebook end. Any idea?

BTW, the Vanilla documentation for FB is slightly outdated I guess.

    This generally occurs when the Facebook app and the Vanilla plugin are not configured correctly. For security, only the registered callback URL is accepted as a redirect URL.

    This would generally be fixed by putting the correct URL in the Facebook app settings page.

    Thanks for the reply. Are you talking about "Site Url" setting?
