I had previously installed and set up the Site Kit by Google plugin and the WP Mail SMTP plugin, both of which require connecting to a Google account (in my case, I was using a Google Workspace account). I later installed the Private Google Calendars plugin, using that same Workspace account, and that’s been working just fine, also.
I recently tried to reconfigure the WP Mail SMTP plugin to use a different “from” email address, and authentication kept failing. Oddly, when I clicked the “Back” link on the authentication error message, I was returned to the Private Google Calendars settings screen.
In the midst of trying to get the WP Mail SMTP plugin reconfigured, I accidentally clicked the button that resets Site Kit by Google. Then I was unable to reconnect that – again, unable to get past the authorization step. The “Back” link on the authentication error message again sent me to the Private Google Calendar settings screen.
Throughout all this mess, I tried using private windows, removing all mention of the two plugins from the WordPress database – nothing worked.
I really didn’t want to deactivate the Private Google Calendars plugin, because it’s used on a live site, but I finally did and was able to configure both the Site Kit by Google plugin and the WP Mail SMTP plugin, using a different Google account for each. I then reactivated the Private Google Calendars plugin (using the account I used for Site Kit by Google), and everything seems to be happily working again. <knock wood>
Does this make sense to anyone?
