In my previous post on setting up Simple Twitter Connect (STC) I got an error message ERROR: Twitter user not recognized So far, I’ve been unable to overcome this problem. But I have done some poking about on forums and my investigation. I’ve now managed to get a 406 Not acceptable message. I don’t yet know why but thought I’d document it anyway.Steps to get the 406 message
- Install Simple Twitter Connect and activate the Base plugin
- Go to settings and follow instructions to create the Twitter application
- Go to Your profile and click on Sign in to Twitter
- The 406 message is displayed as below.
406 Not acceptableThe address bar showed up as: http://www.lalumieredrome.co.uk/?stc_oauth_start=1&stcaction=login_connect&loc=http://www.lalumieredrome.co.uk/wp-admin/profile.php&type=authenticate And the page body was: Not Acceptable An appropriate representation of the requested resource / could not be found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. In the comments to this post from Otto’s blog http://ottopress.com/2010/simple-twitter-connect-0-5/ it says
Before you can log in with Twitter, you have to connect your WordPress account to the Twitter account. Log in normally, then go to the Users->Your Profile section. Click the new button there.I’m still trying to find out how to connect the accounts.
