YOURLS: WordPress to Twitter
[resolved] unable to achieve linking process with twitter app (2 posts)

    I used to tweet through the tinyURL service for a couple of months , and it worked absolutely well with prior version, it really is a great plugin

    But... Even if I think I have properly followed the instructions for the new process built in version 1.4, unfortunately the new yourls plugin isn't working for me

    As recommended, I have got my consumer key and consumer secret from Twitter, saved everything on the the plugin admin page, and I'm now unable to tweet my new posts any more

    Strangely too, when clicking on the "sign in with twitter" button, I'm led to an authorization page on Twitter website. There when clicking on "Allow", I'm delivered a PIN code, but there's no way to enter it in the Yourls admin page...

    I've even tried to unlink the app and my website, nothing's changed

    Do not know to do next, is this a common behaviour, in this case is there a fix available or in progress ? Should I revert back to prior version ?

    Sincerely, Olivier

    for any reason, one of the parameters for the twitter app was wrong (client instead of browser)...

    With the application callback set to my website, the plugin settings has been properly achieved

    sorry for this...
