[Resolved] "WP to Twitter" Plugin: Troubles Getting Started

  • Hi,

    I would like my blog posts to automatically post to my Twitter page, so I installed the “WP to Twitter” plugin.

    I followed the steps 1 – 4 under “Connect To Twitter” in the plugin’s setting page. When I hit the “Connect To Twitter” button I get the error message:

    Twitter requires authentication by OAuth. You will need to update your settings to complete installation of WP to Twitter.
    
    ---
    WP to Twitter failed to connect with Twitter. Try switching to an HTTP connection.

    I tried clicking on the link to switch to an HTTP connection but the page refreshed at nothing to do with connections.

    When I clicked the “Check Support” button I got the new message below, in addition to the original error message above:

    WP to Twitter successfully contacted your selected URL shortening service. The following link should point to your blog homepage: http://beforewisdom.com/blog

    I have the Twitter Consumer key, Twitter Consumer Secrect, Access Token, & Access Secret fields filled in. I registered my blog in my Twitter account.

    Any idea of things to check or try to get the connection between my blog and Twitter going?

    Thanks

    Steve

  • Switching to HTTP queries is the first thing I recommend you try. I don’t know why the link refreshed the page at all; it’s an in page link pointing down to the HTTP option in the advanced settings. Scroll down, find the option to switch to HTTP, then try again.

    Switching to HTTP did not help.

    I did fix the problem with some ideas from the plugin author, who I contacted.

    I cranked the permissions ( in Twitter ) up from the second level ( read and write ) to the third level ( read, write and other things ). I then regenerated the keys and put the new keys in.

    That did the trick
