We will do our best to provide support through the WordPress forums. However, please understand that this is a free plugin,
so support will be limited. Please read this article on how to properly ask for WordPress support and get it.
If you require one to one email support, please consider upgrading to the Pro version.
We connect directly to your Hootsuite (hootsuite.com) account, via their API, to:
– Fetch your social media profile names and IDs,
– Send your WordPress Posts to one or more of your social media profiles. The profiles and content sent will depend on the plugin settings you have configured.
We connect to our own API to pass the following requests through to Hootsuite:
– Connect our Plugin to Hootsuite, when you click the Authorize button (this obtains an access token from Hootsuite, once you have approved authorization)
– Process image uploads to the ow.ly API, which is required by Hootsuite when sharing an image as part of a social media update.
Both of these are done via our own API, to ensure that no secret data (such as oAuth client secret keys) are included in this Plugin’s code or made public.
We never store any information on our web site or API during this process.
We produce free and premium WordPress Plugins that supercharge your site, by increasing user engagement, boost site visitor numbers
and keep your WordPress web sites secure.
