  • Here is how far I get before the error.
    I do not have authorization to change the security.

    This looks like a conflict with another plugin that seems to be introducing some arbitrary data into the URLs. Please try the steps in the workaround documented here.

    Thank You. I did NOT get it to work trying the other method. I did get it to work with a new install of word-press
    locally with new files. So I agree it is probably the other plugin. Will work with it locally for awhile then try and fix it. Thank you so much for your fast reply,

    I did NOT get it to work trying the other method.

    That is surprising. The alternative that I suggested has nothing to do with Photonic at all – it relies on a standard service provided by Google (you are performing the authentication on Google’s website directly). Hence there should be no conflict with another plugin therein. Can you tell me where you are getting stuck with the alternative?

    Note that if you are able to make it work locally, all that you need to do is get the refresh token. In your local install you will find it saved under Photonic → Settings → Google Photos → Google Photos Settings → Refresh Token (for Back-end / Server-side Authentication). You can copy the token from there and paste it into the same field on your main site. Once you save the options you should be set.

    That worked like a charm.. now I can play with all the Parameters. Wow so nice to get quick understandable replies. I am an OLD assembly and machine language coder from the late 1960’s so this is all new to me. Thank YOU
