I am using WordPress 3.8.1 and YOURLS 1.0.9 and on the edit screen of the Post or Page, there is the "YOURLS Shortlink" admin widget n the right of the page.
When I click on the "Get YOURLS" button in the widget, an error as follows appears above the title of the post or page:
There was an error contacting the YOURLS API. Please try again.
This disappears after a few seconds and the contents of the widgets do not appear.
I have checked the API code and totally re-installed YOURLS and the plugin again and got a different API code but the above error happens.
Help would be appreciated.
