YOURLS: WordPress to Twitter
Will Not Authenticate With Twitter API (5 posts)

    Self-hosted, working YOURLS install... I have used this plugin in previous versions of WordPress... plenty of experience authenticating plugins/apps with Twitter, etc.

    Received the error "Could not authenticate you" in Twitter section of plugin settings. Logging in with Twitter via button does not correct the problem. No other indication of problem except:

    1. Plugin requires Twitter API to be set to "Browser," but that was not an option when I created this Twitter app.

    2. There is no entry after "Set Callback URL to" .

    I have exactly the same problem since about 10 days. Everything worked perfect, and suddenly the plugin/app wasn't authenticated anymore and I noticed the two points mentioned above.

    I installed the plugin on another WordPress-installation on the same server, but in a subdirectory. Here everything works fine and the "Set Callback URL to" brings the right value of the subdirectory.

    Why is "Set Callback URL" empty might bring us to a solution.

    Any hint from the developer?

    After hours of searches with google I found the solution. It's an incompatibility with the plugin tweet-blender. See here:

    After disabling Tweetblender, Yourls was able to authenticate, although there still is no URL entry shown.

    Any chance, that this incompatibility will be fixed?
