  • I’m experiencing the same error. Although this is my first time installing so it’s never worked.

    Looks like it might be related to my https everywhere plugin I have installed. Or perhaps another one. I tried opening it in an incognito window and I didn’t get an error.

    When I opened the page normally (when I get the error) I used the javascript console to catch this debug info (replaced my website url with <mywebsite>):
    Blocked a frame with origin “http://<mywebsite>.com” from accessing a frame with origin “”. The frame requesting access has a protocol of “http”, the frame being accessed has a protocol of “https”. Protocols must match.
    Blocked a frame with origin “” from accessing a frame with origin “”. Protocols, domains, and ports must match. onloadwff.js:463

    So it looks like the use of the iframes violates some best practices guidelines that whatever plugin I have enforces for additional security.

    I’m getting this error: AJAX error: error (Forbidden)

    WP 3.5.2

    Is the developer still monitoring this forum and/or making updates to the plugin?

    @tommasz Sorry about the delay in reply. I haven’t yet tried with WP 3.5.2 so let me try that and let you know if I have the same problem.

    I am on Dreamhost, but my site is on the root of

    Single language. It should be noted that this plugin was working fine before. Not sure when it stopped since I hadn’t posted anything from Flickr in a while.

    Could you try clearing your browser cache for me please? If you’re using Chrome you can goto Settings -> Advanced -> Clear Browser data.

    Also, if using Chrome, could you turn on the developer tools (Tools -> Developer Tools) and retry inserting a Flickr image. Any Javascript error will then show up in the Console.

    All of this will help towards figuring out what’s wrong.

    The error exists after cached is clear and on multiple browsers (Firefox and Chrome).

    I’m on Firefox. I cleared the cache, no change. Here’s the Web Developer console output:

    Hi !

    I have an ajax error too, even if it’s not the same.
    I’ve clean my Chrome settings and it’s still there.

    AJAX error: parsererror (SyntaxError: Unexpected token <)

    Thanks @tommasz, the error is this line:

    GET [HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden 2259ms]

    Your WP hosting configuration is not allowing the plugin to use custom query variables ( Are you running Apache? I suspect you will need to update your rewrite rules or something similar.
