Twitter Problem (10 posts)

    Hello All,

    Am using Network provider Facebook, Twitter, Google and LinkedIn. Except Twitter the other network providers are working fine.
    The problem with Twitter is I am able to connect twitter account and also authorize app. But once am done that and again if I click on Twitter it asks for authorize app.

    In simple words everytime if I'm logged in Twitter account and from my WordPress website if I click on Twitter icon , Twitter asks for "Authorize App". Am little confused whether this is plugin problem or Twitter problem. Please kindly help me resolve this.

    The other network providers ask for authorization of app only once and are working fine.

    Any help much appreciated. Please help me!!!

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    I'm seeing that too - every time a user who authenticates with Twitter clicks on the Twitter icon to login, they're asked by Twitter to authorize the app again.

    I wonder if it's common to all people using this for Twitter & nobody else has noticed/reported. Or if there's something we're doing wrong.

    I'm running on WP 3.6b1 if that might make a difference.

    hey my problem was fixed. I had to check the read/write box and not the read/write/access direct box in twitter app settings and made sure that the "Allow this application to be used to Sign in with Twitter" box checked as well.

    Wow - confirmed here!

    I've now checked the "allow this application to be used to sign in with twitter" box (seems kinda obvious in hindsight!) and Twitter logins work for me as they should.

    I currently HAVEN'T got the "read and write" radio button checked, just the "read only" button - but I've turned several settings on and then off again so this doesn't provide categorical proof of exactly how the settings should be, although it does seem like login shouldn't really need write access to your twitter account.

    Either way, looks like Twitter authentication does work. Thanks for your help jayweb

    Piggybacking ... when a user logs in using twitter, it get's stuck on the twitter page "Authorize <site> to use your account?" The big blue "Sign In" button appears to click but nothing happens.

    I have checked the Application Type: "Read and Write" radio button and the "Allow this application to be used to Sign in with Twitter" checkbox.

    What else could it be?

    I might as well jump in on this thread rather than starting a new one. Similar problem with Twitter. From the error logs:

    [Tue Jul 02 04:07:31 2013] [warn] [host www.unitedrant.co.uk] [client] WordPress database error Unknown column 'user_wsl_email' in 'field list' for query SELECT user_wsl_email as data_field FROM<code>wp_users</code> where ID = '3251' made by require_once('wp-admin/admin.php'), do_action('settings_page_wordpress-social-login'), call_user_func_array, wsl_admin_init, include('/plugins/wordpress-social-login/includes/admin/components/users​/index.php'), wsl_component_users, wsl_component_users_list, wsl_get_user_data_by_user_id, referer: http://www.unitedrant.co.uk/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=wordpress-​social-login&wslp=bouncer

    Any thoughts?

    If you are using twiter go with ftp to the plugin folder wordpress-social-login/hybridauth/Hybrid/Providers/ , open Twitter.php and change

    $this->api->api_base_url      = "https://api.twitter.com/1/";
    $this->api->api_base_url      = "https://api.twitter.com/1.1/";
