Simple Twitter Connect
[resolved] authorization for publish not working (4 posts)

    I have STC installed, and I can manually Tweet a post after I've published it (authorizing the tweet each time), but none of the "Sign in with Twitter" buttons in the STC settings are working, meaning I cannot set it to publish with that account all of the time.

    Under the Publish settings, whether the auto-tweet is selected or not, when I click either of those auth buttons, it brings up a blank page.

    Any ideas what I should try next?

    Try deactivating other plugins, you may have one interfering. If you can figure out which one it is, I can take a look and see why it's happening.

    Also try the default theme, sometimes themes do weird things.

    Interesting. It looks like Tweet Blender may not be 100% compatible with Simple Twitter Connect.

    I was able to get STC to authenticate after I'd disabled Tweet Blender, but when I first reactivated Tweet Blender, it stopped working.

    After re-enabling Tweet Blender, at first it wasn't able to find the user or hashtags I'd set it to display. I did a manual refresh twice, and then it started working.

    That part may have just been a transient thing, or a just another Twitter thing, but the STC authentication failure was definitely from a plugin collision of some sort.

    Correction: STC is definitely NOT compatible with Tweet Blender.

    While Tweet Blender eventually began displaying normally after the disable-enable ritual, enabling it caused the STC settings page to mostly vanish.

    The top part of the settings page displayed normally, but in the Publish section, everything after the checkbox to Auto Tweet was blank. The rest of the settings options were gone, the "Save Changes" button was gone, and the sidebar info blocks were gone... just a big mostly blank white page after the Main Settings.

    I disabled Tweet Blender again, and the rest of the settings page reappeared, so I'm leaving Tweet Blender off for now while I explore other plugins that do what it was doing.
