Before using WordPress to Buffer Pro, you’ll need to authenticate your WordPress to Buffer Pro installation to use your Buffer account.  This ensures that WordPress to Buffer Pro can send status updates to Buffer when Posts are published / updated, based on the Plugin’s settings.

If you’re upgrading from the Free version, you won’t need to re-authenticate – so don’t worry if you don’t see the Authorize Plugin button.

  1. In the WordPress Administration interface, click on WP to Buffer Pro > Settings
    WordPress to Buffer Pro: Settings Menu
