I hired Herb to transform my website to WordPress. He did this for me and at the same time totally transformed my website. He has done a fantastic job and not forgetting the time he put in helping me understand how to use my new website. I would definitely recommend Herb to anyone who wants to work with someone who knows what they're talking about and who does such a brilliant job. Thank you Herb and keep up the great work.

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

  1. Install Simple Twitter Connect and activate the Base plugin
  2. Go to settings and follow instructions to create the Twitter application
  3. Go to Your profile and click on Sign in to Twitter
  4. The 406 message is displayed as below.

406 Not acceptable

The address bar showed up as:

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

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.

Problem with mod_security

Otto has been in touch and suggested there could be a problem with mod_security (an Apache server module that is used to reduce spamming). I have been in touch with my web hosting company, they have made some changes and this have got better.

The change needs to be done for each site.  Once done you can make more progress. I am going to create a summary table of my sites to see which are working, then I’ll udpate the relevant posts.
