Support » Plugin: PWA+PHP Picasa Web Albums for WordPress » Google Authentication Problem

  • Resolved claridgematt



    I’ve just installed this plugin and when trying to complete Step 1 of the setup, to authenticate with Google, I am receiving this error:

    The page you have requested cannot be displayed. Another site was requesting access to your Google Account, but sent a malformed request. Please contact the site that you were trying to use when you received this message to inform them of the error. A detailed error message follows:

    The site “” has not been registered.

    Google reports that this authentication method has been deprecated.

    Is there a way around this problem? I don’t particularly need access to private albums, so this step is probably not required, but the plugin demands it…

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • I wish I could. The server is a virtual machine run by CenturyLink / SavvisDirect as part of a “business package” and I have no access to the PHP installation, the web error logs, or… …

    I may move a copy of the site to my server just to help debug. I cringed when I learned where the karate site was being hosted. And as a bonus, totally useless support.


    I also have the same problems.
    One 1 website I use pwaplusphp with “show public albums only” set as TRUE. Al my albums show up. No problem at all.

    On another site I can’t use this setting because some albums can’t be publicly shown (on G+ etc). Therefor: “show public albums only” is FALSE.
    I went trough all the 4 steps without any problem.
    After a while my albums disappear.
    The strange thing is that not even the public albums are showing!

    What can I do?

    A clue. I made a new album and added images; everything is good up to 107 images. If I add any additional images, regardless of the name, metadata, etc. the page crashes.


    Well, 107 is not a magic number… I’ve had to delete a handful of images to get it working again. Maybe a memory problem somewhere?

    Sorry Rich, out of town this past weekend. Yes, it could be a memory issue but typically you would see a message about it. Anyway, you can try upping the WP_MEMORY_LIMIT. This page has instructions for editing wp-config.php:

    I just test and nothing is displayed for public and private album.

    @jroy, please take a look over here:

    manu2000 identified a typo that would impact private albums. Please update to v0.9.11 via the dashboard and let me know if it works.

    @smccandl: it works!!!

    thank you for your support and thank you to manu2000!!!

    I have updated to v9.12. Pictures are not showing. I receive this message after step 4 “Configuration is complete and PWA+PHP is ready for use. Create a page with contents “[pwaplusphp]” to see your albums.” I have done so.

    If I use the back up, I get the following message “Install Step 4: Failed!
    Got the following response:
    { “error” : “invalid_grant”, “error_description” : “Invalid code.” }”

    Any help is appreciated.

    *EDIT* Just went to the settings page and saw the required steps, sorry! Working now, thank you Scott!

    WP just suggested an update, and I did it to v9.12 and am now receiving the following:

    refreshOAuth2Token got the following response:
    { "error": "invalid_request", "error_description": "Missing required parameter: refresh_token" } using refreshToken


    I am using Version v9.13 – The plugin does not work – and I would have to manually reset the token every time. Any chance for a fix?
    It is a nice plugin if it was waorking :-)!

    please help

    Did you follow the instructions on the settings link of the plugin?

    Yes, It is working for one hour. After that the Album does not show up. I will have to reset the token then it works for another 60 mins.

    We need each hour Reset Token, otherwise albums disappear from the page. How to solve the problem?

    Removed plugin Version v9.13 with all the data. I put again. After that re-created a new project in Old projects deleted. Recorded just http: // and https: //. The plugin has been working for a few hours, and now I’m afraid to touch anything on the site)))
