I apologize. I just can not seem to follow all that you wrote about debugging this error "Unable to retrieve Google Form. Please try reloading this page." I did not do it in visual, my account allows content from an outside source and I am not seeing HTTP API errors on the WordPress Dashboard or when I attempt to access the plugin repository through the Dashboard. I am hoping you can help.
I have filled out all the required fields on MichaelWalsh.com. I am just posting here as I don't know which forum gets attention the fastest.
