Support » Plugin: Google Drive for WordPress » [Plugin: Google Drive for WordPress] error unexplained "token" –

  • Resolved cfrances


    Hi, I installed the Google Drive plugin following your examples – it is very straightforward and the only question I had with install (What I cannot also understand really from your walk thru screens when there is a link to Wikipedia Javascript), is how to fill in the javascript section.

      Possibly this is what is causing the error script – “The session state

      () didn’t match the state parameter (token)”?

    The ID and secret were supplied by the API, and I filled in the redirect URL according to the suggestion from the plugin on the WP backend (rather long url – ending with xxxxwp-admin/admin.php?page=configure_google&action=auth

    No javascript URL was supplied so I attempted just the base address of my blog URL and the address of the Redirect URL provided by the plugin.

    Each time, I tried the clear cache (from the browser Firefox, not sure if this the cache you meant) – will try it again with a clear cache plugin in WP blog.

    Thanks for your help – also, I did try resetting the secret (not the API ID), each time, but no help –

    The token is the only error I have encountered. Thanks so much for any help.

    Each time configure Google account we need to create new client ID & secret ID, once configured you can use it until reconfigure the account. once reconfigure you need to clear browsers cache and then create the new one.

    check the below video link for more details

    Hello Malarvizhi Krishnan,
    Thank you for your reply. I tried again (Realizing from your video, I did not need to deal with the javascript dialogue box, only the first one that shows up (no advanced).

    Still, same error, could it be the version of WP (most recent updated)?

    I mad a quick (less then 3 min) screencast on youtube now, if you want to see if I am doing something wrong. I deleted all instances of previous API attempts, cleared cache…

    Thank you –

    can you provide server credentials to us to check it out the problem? My email id: malarvizhiatsecurenextdotnet

    Hi Malarvizhi,
    I did manage to get the auth to work for API though not much use currently. I just thought it might be the host provider issue with resolving links or whatever on the base URL – so installed the WP blog on an extension now at instead of

    It worked! but I’m not sure about moving the whole blog!

    Plus not sure about that issue, maybe it’s because I have a lot of “fix it”, clean it, db-manager plugins installed, it’s just too crowded. Plus lots of plugins trying to find a front end uploading/repository.

    Not sure what you mean by server credentials (how to obtain them). OK, thanks, I will be satisfied with what I’ve got for now. Many thanks for the plugin.
