  • Hey knighs2
    Could you find the solution to your problem? I am experiencing the same error when I am trying to integrate social with my WordPress blog.

    POST to http://localhost/india/blog/index.php?social_controller=auth&social_action=authorized&is_admin=true&user_id=1 failed with 404: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN”> <html><head> <title>404 Not Found</title> </head><body> <h1>Not Found</h1> <p>The requested URL /india/blog/index.php was not found on this server.</p> <hr> <address>Apache/2.2.14 (Ubuntu) Server at localhost Port 80</address> </body></html>

    Hey guys!

    I’ve tried to replicate the same behavior that you’ve described, but the only time I get the same response is when I’m either A) running the plugin on a local install or B) have “Maintenance Mode” activated. Essentially, the only time I can get things to break is when my page isn’t accessible from an outside connection.

    If those circumstances don’t match what you’ve got going on with your site, could you provide a little more information about your setup? Which version of WordPress is running? Could you provide any other plugins that are running?

    We’ll be happy to see if we can get to the bottom of it!


    Hi mc_nate

    I’m having the same problem. When I try to connect to an account to set up Social it brings me to a 404 on my own site. I’m using Version 3.3.1 of wordpress.

    I even tried to deactivate all other plugins and just run Social and still am getting a 404 page when I try to link an account to the plug in.

    Hey Cassie!

    Can you send us a link to your site so we can have a peek?


    Wow that was fast! LOL! It’s


    Plugin Author mc_nate


    Hey again!

    And was the plugin giving the 404 error at any time when the site was down (like a maintenance page or something of the like)? Or has it always been up and running?

    it’s always been up and running as far as I know. It would open the little pop up where on other sites using Social it would ask permission to access Twitter/Facebook, but on my site it just goes to a 404 page with my header and logo.

    Sorry to keep bugging you, Cassie.

    Can you give us some more information about what the 404 page says and the URL for the error page?

    Seems like a lot of us are having this same problem. Any solutions yet?

    Hey there!

    If you wouldn’t mind, can you provide the error message that you’re seeing, specifically?


    When I try to connect Facebook or Twitter for all users (under Settings.. Social…), I get the basic 404 error message… page not found.

    I’ve connected them for me personally under my profile (that works), however, Broadcasted posts go only to Twitter — they do NOT go to Facebook.

    And, I just noticed… when I try to leave a comment to a blog post, and try clicking on the Facebook/Twitter buttons, the non-sizeable window that pops up opens my website’s Homepage — there is nothing for logging into Facebook or Twitter!
