Preparing Social media Apps before Configuring redSOCIALSTREAM

Because of the nature of how this extension works, you will need to do some preparations of external Social Media Apps before you can get on with configuring redSOCIALSTREM itself.

In the main overview page you can see we have a section named Creating Apps to connect your Social Medias, and this is the first thing we will need to do.

For each Social Media that we wish to connect with our website we will have to create an App in their developer area. The steps are explained in detail for each Social Media service.

Each of these Apps will create some special keys and secrets, that we will need in our configuration of redSOCIALSTREAM.
