I thought i got this working a week ago, but now I am getting this error.

Things i have tried:

  • regenerated API keys
  • turning off oauth2. on the application
  • verifying the call back APIs look right (and adding an additional callback for the network url as well as site URL)
  • checked my email is verified with twitter (i think it is) i don't see anything in the twitter dev dashboard that indicates an issue

I notice in the browser console the following error is thrown as https://api.twitter.com/oauth/authorize?oauth_token=<redacted> is processed

 

Error parsing a meta element's content: ';' is not a valid key-value pair separator. Please use ',' instead.

 

I wonder if twitter changed something... breaking your code.... this isn't the only plugin having issues with twitter login via API....

@scyto,

Are you sure the application is not yet under review? Have you confirmed the email address?

1. Yes confirmed email.

2. I don't believe its under review - nothing says that anywhere.

3. It was working, it stopped working. I don't know why.

I have 'essential access' is that good enough or do i need elevated access?

i just applied for elevated access, created a new app with the same settings, it works - maybe elevated access is now needed?

a note, these were all created as new apiv2 apps and worked.  then i added oauth2 - maybe that broke it.

i only got menu to created standalone apps once i applied for elevated access

maybe the instructions need to be updated to reflect the changes in the twitter, i did best i could as the instructions don't match 🙂

@scyto,

We'll take this into consideration for sure.
