Can't register twitter client with microbloggin-plguin

Post by cryptosteve » Sun Dec 01, 2013 12:27 pm

Hi,
I'm trying to register my microblogging-plugin at twitter but it does not work.

After clicking on "Connect" ("Verbinden" in german) I'll get a new window with this url -> https://blog.crashmail.de/index.php?/pl ... -redirect=

But nothing happens. Just a white window without any content. What might be the problem here? I'm using lighttpd, may it be a problem with url-redirection? I cannot find anything of interest in log files and have no clue where to search for a solution.

Thanks in advance ...

Hi!

Hm, a white page could also mean a fatal PHP error. Do you have PHP's display_errors enabled through php.ini or .htaccess, or maybe have an PHP error log?

The Twitter OAuth API might require PHP5, so which PHP version do you run?

I have php5.4 here at the moment. display_errors is enabled and I also enabled a logfile but absolutely nothing.

My webserver automatically redirects all blog-visits from http to https - can this cause this issue?

Or is there a simple way to register my twitter application manually?

Hi!

Phew, I only remember that the whole oauth key thing was a bit complicated, and we reworked it a couple of times. Previously you needed to get your own client ID through your blog and register it on twitter, but then we implemented a global api key by default.

I haven't done this in a long time, you might want to try to delete the plugin and reinstall so that it gets a new configuration and you can start over to try to sync your key. Also you might want to enable multiple accounts, I think there also is a config option to enter your own signed key / credentials, then you can create your own API ID on the twitter API key page, and enter those for your blog, and it might work with those...
