Cant connect Calendar ID (8 posts)

    I have a problem when configuring the plugin, connecting my calendar ID.
    The API Key, Client ID and Client Secret all seem to be fine (followed the installation steps over and over again) but when I fill in my email in the Calendar ID field and click Save and Connect at the bottom, it links to my google page and asks if i want to accept having offline access.

    After I accepted the request it takes me back to the previous wp page but now with a notification at the top which says "Please login as (the email i entered in the calendar ID field)", and shows me in red "Not Connected" at the right side of the Calendar ID field.

    Since I have not seen anyone else dealing with the same issue, I guess I'm doing something very silly, but I have seriously spend days in frustration trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong here. Guess you can already tell I'm a newbie :)
    Can someone help me out?

    Thanks in advance,

    I used another computer to setup this plugin, because I don't want to clear everything (cache, cookie, etc) on my browser in my laptop. It worked for me.

    Maybe, email verification existed since 0.1.5 to prevent wrong connection to google api
    To pass the email verification edit /wp-content/plugins/yakadanda-google-hangout-events/oauth2callback.php line 34

    $is_calendar_id = in_array($data['calendar_id'], $calendar_ids);

    $is_calendar_id = true;

    Yes that takes away the error but still wont let me use the plugin. I definitely did something wrong. Hopefully I can try it in a clean browser in a few days.
    Thanks for the tip :)

    I finally figured it out.. In step 6 (last step) of Yakadanda's tutorial in the image it shows "Referers - Any referer allowed".

    This doesn't normally show up this way when i finish creating an API. So every time I retried it, I typed in a couple of URL's that i wanted to give access. However if you click "Edit allowed referers" and leave it blank it will give you "Any referer allowed" (as shown in the image of the tutorial) and after that, I was finally able to connect.

    Thanks Teguh for trying to help out.
    If you didn't, I probably would have given up haha
