First of all, you’ll need to learn how an API works in Kodular/App Inventor. Here are some tutorials to get started:

You should use this type of URL : https://www.tumblr.com/oauth/access_token?oauth_consumer_key=WZnnjAIkpOfnVX3WKdhYeu3QWceAFQ75VQaV17rDgAwFGU5sUQ&oauth_signature=HMAC-SHA1&oauth_nonce=abcde&oauth_signature=5A2RUhS2ggAc2ZwEYexVRK5FGiE3hmDp7qosjEyVQhz6D2Obyb

I tried my best But i am getting this error have no idea why : oauth_signature does not match expected value


(IPRESSTV ADMIN) #11

I think you might need an Extension for this… I am not much Experienced with OAuth, but with regular API and Json, RSS, XML i can help


(IPRESSTV ADMIN) #13
