DropBox not returning to SnapShot after authentication

When I authenticate with Drop Box, Drop Box returns me to my Google Analytics Plugin settings instead of the Snapshot Plugin settings. When I return to the Destination option my Drop Box account has not been activated.

Please can you help?

Thank you

    @chairleg, When you first hit the Dropbox page where Dropbox asks you to allow WPMUDEV Snapshot access to your account check your browser address bar. As part of the long URL you should see parameter ‘oath_callback=…

    For example here is my own callback from my local test system.

    oauth_callback=http://inc342mu.com/wp-admin/network/admin.php?page=snapshots_destinations_panel&snapshot-action=add

    Note the value of the oauth_callback URL. It should be the Snapshot panel. If it is also on yours then my assumption is the other plugin is wrongly intercepting the oath reply from Dropbox.

    A quick solution is to disable the other plugin briefly. Do the authorization with Snapshot (you only need to do this once) then reactivate the other plugin.
