Simple Twitter Connect
[resolved] When posting to twitter always asks for password (3 posts)

    When I try to post from the Dashboard or Twitter Publisher in the post screen, I get asked for my Twitter username and password.

    I created the application on Twitter, and I setup the keys where I was asked for them. When clicking Tweet, I get a popup from twitter asking me for the username/password. How can I fix this? It is pretty annoying to have to login every time.

    It will only ask you for that info if you're not logged in to the twitter website already. Nothing that can be done about that, it has to know who you are in order to do anything.

    Maybe you have your browser privacy settings turned too high and it doesn't remember your cookies or something. Regardless, it's nothing I can change via the plugin.

    Otto,

    Thanks! I never login to Twitter so that explains the issue. I thought that this worked a little differently, but I will login to Twitter more often now.
