Simple Twitter Connect
Simple Twitter Connect and Live Blogging possible conflict? (10 posts)

    I have a WP site (latest version of WP and both plugins)

    It seems that there might be a conflict between STC and Live Blogging

    I couldn't get Live Blogging to authorize with STC active. However, everything else worked great with live-blogging.

    I deactivated STC, and then live-blogging authorized fine.

    Now I have the problem that when both plugins are active, if I make any post, I crash. I go to the white screen. The post posts (sort of). Like the content posts, but some of the content (custom fields for example) don't take.

    If I deactivate simple-blogging, things work right again.

    I found another thread regarding this

    Was wondering if there was any way to get these to play nicely, or if I'm just a fringe case and somebody else has these 2 playing nicely?

    Try the trunk version. I renamed my Twitter OAuth library to avoid conflicts.

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class OAuthSignatureMethod_HMAC_SHA1 in /home/content/r/v/o/rvoodoo/html/voodoopress/wp-content/plugins/simple-twitter-connect/OAuth.php on line 82

    Here's the error I'm getting after the upgrade to trunk

    Ugh. Okay, so he's using the same library names.

    I added a class_exists check there, but I can't guarantee the plugin will work if it's using his oauth library instead of mine.

    Hi Otto,

    The TwitterOAuth library in Live Blogging is this one here: https://github.com/abraham/twitteroauth, are you using a home-made one, or re-using that library? If it's the former, there's quite a number of plugins that come with that library bundled so it's going to be a problem with more than just Live Blogging!

    vnguru: The problem is because we both include the TwitterOAuth library, but slightly different versions of it, so it conflicts, not because of WP

    Chris, I'm using that one, but I modified mine to work better with WordPress and to be more compatible. The default library only supports curl, for example. Mine supports any of the transports WP's HTTP API supports.

    Wow.... ok, so currently both are running on VoodooPress. Seems like a pretty unstable relationship.

    I uninstalled/reinstalled and deactivated/reactivated for days. It finally worked today. Except one issue.

    There is no way to authorize Live Blogging through twitter. I can live without it, but its a real bummer. If I try to authenticate Live Bloggin, it goes to twitters page, but when I click to allow it, I'm redirected back to my STC settings page.

    Do I have a hosed setting possibly?

    Thanks again for the help so far. I'd really love to get the 2 running, it's a powerful combination!

    OK, so everything is currently working. Including liveblogging tweets.

    I had to activate STC first. And fully authorize it.

    Then activate liveblogging

    Then completely deactivate STC

    Authorize liveblogging

    Reactivate STC, the authorization made prior to deactivating will stick

    When done in that exact order, everything works..... for me
