    Hi Everyone

    I’m new to WordPress but am learning pretty fast, having just moved all my blogs from Blogger to WordPress. I’ve since added plenty of plugins and yours is the latest. I can see it’s very powerful and I’d like to get it working – but I can’t.

    I’ve been through the setup process, but If I try and add a Google Album, it pops up an error message pointing back to the setup/authentication screen – I suspect I have created an error here, somewhere.

    I get all the way through the process (Google Client ID and the Google Secret are all OK) but when it comes to the token stage, and try and get it, the token is ‘undefined’
    is that normal? Is that what is stopping it functioning?

    The screen then suggests that I use ‘Google Photos Refresh Token Getter’, but I am not seeing that option anywhere.

    Does any of this make sense? Is there any other data I can provide you with to get your excellent plugin working?

    I tried ‘re-authenticating’ but I still get ‘undefined’ for the token – and the plugin is is still unable to find any of my Albums.

    I’d appreciate any help.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Are you sure you pasted the right file? Note that this link is different from what I had given you earlier.

    I thought I had. I just re-pasted it just now to be sure

    So, this is really weird. I am seeing this error message:

    {
      "error": "invalid_grant",
      "error_description": "Token has been expired or revoked."
    }

    If your token is expired, how is it that you are still able to create a gallery in the post editor? Are you still able to create a gallery? Try clicking on the Google Photos icon and see how far you can go.

    Also try building out a new shortcode from scratch.

    Now I’m able to get all the way through the process, although there was a lot of machine code on one of the screens. So I can get all the way to insert the short code, but I don’t see the google photos icon anymore and nothing gets added to the post

    Hope this helps. I guess it just confirms that it still isn’t working

    Can you take a screenshot of what you have on the last screen, where it tells you what shortcode you are generating? You can upload that to the same WP page that you are using to illustrate the problem.

    Alternatively, if you are using the Classic Editor, you can click on the tab that says “Text” (not “Visual”) and get the shortcode directly from there.

    Hi Sayontan

    I have to leave home in a short while. I guess you deserve a break from it (and me!)

    I can probably give you another 30 minutes or so.

    I really appreciate you going to all this trouble for me.

    Any chance we can pick this up later in the week? Would you prefer MY mornings or MY evenings?

    Thanks

    Steve

    Does this help?

    Hi Steve,
    Since I am based out of Houston your mornings might be too late for me (or too early for you). So I guess your evenings work better.

    Cool!

    Shall we pick things up around 6pm UK time tomorrow?

    Can I provide any more data for you to chew over in the meantime – or do you have all you need?

    Thanks
    🙂 🙂

    I do have all the info that I need, I believe, but I need to think of anything else that might be going wrong. I am out of ideas at the moment.

    Let’s pick it up tomorrow.

    Cheers Sayontan

    If we get through this, there’s an enormous coffee waiting for you, from me!

    Catch you tomorrow! 🙂

    Hi Sayontan

    We said we might pick it up again around this time. Have you had time to think of any other things we might try to solve my issue?

    No worries if you have been unable to devote any thinking time to this – just didn’t want to miss the opportunity today. 😉

    Cheers
    Steve

    Hi again Sayontan

    It’s 6.45pm here in the UK, and I’ve gotta run. Sorry I missed you. If you let me know when you’re around, perhaps we can pick it up on another ‘evening’ around 6pm here?

    Appreciate your support so far! Thank you!

    Regards

    Steve
