Simple Twitter Connect
[resolved] Unable to comment using STC (5 posts)

    Users are unable to comment on the site using the Simple Twitter Connect plugin. They are able to sign in, but when they attempt to publish the comment, they get the following error:

    ERROR: please fill the required fields (name, email).

    It seems the plugin is not auto-filling the fields with the Twitter username and the @fake.twitter.com email address.

    Any ideas?

    Exactly the same happens to me. Also the twitter gravatar doesn't show any more when logged in. All worked fine last time I tested, I think it was a couple of weeks ago.

    Sadly it looks like twitter's lockdown api operation has begun:

    Thanks a lot Otto for your incredible work with this great plugin.
