Snapshot and Dropbox

when I click to authorize Dropbox, I get the dropbox page asking if authorization is OK, then I get a blank page.

Snapshot is not saving the dropbox location.

    @bob_turitz, When you click the authorize from within Dropbox it will post a form back to your WordPress system. This form contains some secret variables which are essentially a set of access keys. If you are getting a blank page it could be something else in your WordPress system intercepting or redirecting the page load.

    Try enabling WP_DEBUG in your wp-config.php. Hopefully instead of he blank we can get an error output.

    Thanks Paul. I enabled debug and got these messages, none of which are related to snapshot. Let me know your thoughts.

    @bob_turitz, I don't see any of the errors mention Snapshot files. But I do see mention of other plugins. The curious one is the simple twitter connect.

    The authorization between Snapshot and Dropbox only needs to be done once. Once Dropbox posts back the access keys Snapshot stores these are part of the destination configuration.

    So here is what I need you to try.

    1. Turn OFF (false) WP_DEBUG
    2. Deactivate the Simple Twitter Connect.
    3. Go to your Network Snapshot Destinations and setup a new Dropbox Destination. Hopefully this time it will complete.
    4. Re-Activate your Twitter connect plugin.

    There are two other plugins I see mentioned all-in-one-favicon and seo-rank-reporter but I have a feeling the OAuth from the Twitter plugin might be trying to intercept the Dropbox OAuth processing.

    OK tried all of the above and now I am getting an error page from Dropbox that says:
    Error
    Something went wrong. Don't worry, your files are still safe and the Dropboxers have been notified. Check out our Help Center and forums for help, or head back to home.

    Better than before, but still not working :slight_smile:

    Error was WP Admin.
    I may have figured it out. I had the Destination named "2DogHill Snapshot", I changed that to 2DogHillSnapshot and it worked :slight_smile:

    Thanks for your patience and assistance Paul, Really appreciate it!!!

    Have a good weekend.
