While debugging

"error": "redirect_uri_mismatch",
  "error_description": "Redirect URI mismatch."
index.php?option=[extension name]&view=constantcontact&type=verification

m using joomla for my development so my path is same both in the keys section as well as in the application code.

 my path in account and code for redirect uri is

http://localhost/[folder name]/administrator/index.php?option=[extension name]&view=constantcontact&type=verification


Re: M not Getting Token error

Our implementation of OAuth 2.0 does not allow for parameters to be set in your base redirect_uri.  In your example, you would want to set your redirect_uri to http://localhoast/[folder_name]/administrator/index.php.  When you actually make the calls, you can populate the redirect URI with optional query parameters and we will return those verbatim as sent in.  Because most query parameters are dynamicly created based on the user starting the flow, though this is not always the case, we require you to add them at request time.  We compare the redirect_uri value to the base URI sent in so if you add query parameters to your redirect_uri value, it will never succeed in comparison since it will never match the base URI.
