BackWPup Free - WordPress Backup Plugin
[Plugin: BackWPup] Cannot Authenticate with Dropbox (5 posts)

    Everything is working well with this plugin. However, I cannot get it to authenticate with dropbox.

    Pressing the button takes you to dropbox where it asks you to confirm, then when you confirm, you are bounced back to WordPress to another plugin's options (Google Analytics)???

    Even after authentication with dropbox, and being taken back to wordpress, the dropbox field still says not authenticated.

    Is there a conflict going on here?

    Workaround:
    - deactivate Google Analytics
    - Authenticate with Dropbox
    - activate Google Analytics

    I will check is it a Problem on my Plugin or Google Analytics....

    Your workaround worked perfectly, and the back-up made it to dropbox! Excellent.

    The Problem is taht Google Analytics Plugin catches all oauth auth. requests and not only the rquests for that plugin. I will inform the Author.

    Good to know. I believe the author is Joost, or @yoast on Twitter.
