This widget lets you embed your YOURLS installation (or someone else's through API) to have a short URL service into your sidebar.
=The widget gives an "Invalid username or password" notice/ I have a private configuration of YOURLS (admin access needs password).=
This happens because your YOURLS installation is private configuration. To fix this you have to edit the yourls-widget-config.php and add user and password in the fields.
Example with username "user and password "password: becomes:
=Let any website use my API even if I have password protected admin=
To do this you have to edit your YOURLS API (yourls-api.php) and remove these lines:
if ( defined(’YOURLS_PRIVATE’) && YOURLS_PRIVATE == true ) require_once( dirname(__FILE__).’/includes/auth.php’ );
This will disable the password protection on the API, but will keep your admin menu passworded.
