[resolved] [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Google+ Error 403 (2 posts)

    If I try to enter a Google+ page I get an error 403. I CAN enter in the Google+ user number but not the full URL itself. The only way I can get this plugin to work for rel=author is to hack the code to predefine the URL with https and then have the variable enter the Google+ ID - which is probably the way it should have been designed, IMHO. Still great work. No... better than great. This is an incredible plugin.

    In class-frontend.php I changed the line to:

    echo '<link rel="author" href="https://plus.google.com/u/0/' . $gplus . '/posts"/>' . "\n";

    Works like a charm.

    Correction - the plugin works perfectly. WordPress has problems with editing other users even as an administrator. Very odd. If you try to edit URLs of another admin (and possibly other users, not sure) you'll get a 403 error.
