Can't connect to local web server (2 posts)

    When attempting to connect with my local web server I get


    POST to http://mysite.localhost.com/index.php?mcsf_action=authorized&salt=0fa7a07a0df08dsf08sdf08&user_id=1 failed: Couldn't resolve host 'mysite.localhost.com'

    This is very frustrating. I don't care if socialize-this.com can't resolve a localhost domain, just POST it anyway and let my browser take care of it. The old login method was much better.

    For those in the same boat as me you can download the old version of the plugin here.

    Hey flynsarmy,

    Thanks for posting. Unfortunately at this time version 1.3 of the plugin will not work on localhost installs. This is something that some users made mention of in our blog post's comments here as well: http://blog.mailchimp.com/update-to-the-wordpress-plugin/#comments

    We've passed along this feedback/request to our developers. While I'm not able to provide a definitive time frame for a resolution, I can assure that the requests have been forwarded and we've taken notice. In the mean time, as you mentioned, the best bet would be to install a previous version of the plugin which should work as intended in local environments.

    If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reply to this post and I'd be happy to help.
