I want to get an API key from my account and tie it to a wordpress plugin which can then be installed on any wordpress website.
The API key requires a redirectURI -- this URI is custom for every wordpress install:
while I could generate that url and walk my users through generating their own API key with a custom redirect URL specific to their website, this is a _mess_. I am confident that any instruction I could provide will at best be a hassle and at worst confuse all but technically savvy users.
I desire to make my plugin usable by novice users looking to add constant contact support to their website.
How can I setup a cross-domain API key without the need for custom-tailored redirect URIs?

Looks like three-legged authentication is the answer as opposed to OAuth 2.0 through the CtCt wrapper
I'll post again if I have more questions or find out something interesting :)

Definitely let us know if you have questions. I've been working through some OAuth2 scenarios as well, and three-legged authentication does seem to be the best way to handle"novice-proofing" your OAuth2 authentication.
