Click to add FB and Twitter = popup of my own site (5 posts)

    I'm using Headway Themes (version 2.something) and HostGator. (FYI)

    When I click to connect the plugin with Twitter and Facebook, rather than giving me what I assume should be an "authorize" popup, I get a popup of my own site in its visual editor. (My site is not yet live - I have it redirecting to a MailChimp sign up form.) I tried in both Firefox and Chrome. I built a website last fall with the same theme and host and had no trouble using Social.

    Instead of getting the Authorize pop-up, I'm getting a 404 page. The theme is Twenty Eleven.

    Hostgator has sec_mod rules that have to be changed to allow the authorization links to Facebook and Twitter.

    They had to change TWO rules for me... Once I provided the URL I was getting (in my case it was going to a "Page Not Found" on my WP site) they were able to debug it with me.
