Problem posting on own website

    G'day! Today while replying to a comment left on my website, I changed how I posted by changing the icon to twitter (I do this always)

    I never had problems before.

    Today when I did that, an error message came up to say my Twitter account has expired.

    There is no problems with my Twitter account

    Can someone please help?

    I posted under the Word.com icon to get the message through.

    When I put the mouse over my name, it redirects to the correct website

    ???

    I had a free account under http://www.whatsonthelist.wordpress.com and now have a paid site through wordress.com which is listed above.

    Is the computer just playing silly buggas or I have to update a setting on my blog dashboard.

    Thank you in advance for any help
    Hope you have a great day! Cheers! Joanne

    The blog I need help with is whatsonthelist.net.

    The actual message:

    "Error: your Twitter login has expired."

  5. I have got exactly the same error message on every website where I use a Twitter login. Does that mean none of the wordpress sites can accept Twitter comments any more?

    G'day Based on the article above as of today an old version has retired and a new version is necessary to update

    I have seen previous solutions which suggested one need to go to their dashboard, settings, Twitter widget and change a setting

    I could not find "Twitter widget" on my widget options now the message or area that needs updating.

    This is why I am trying to have someone help me simply step by step

    A LOT of people have been affected. I had no clue the updates were needed previously.

    Anyone? Thank you!

  8. @mickeydownunder because of the change on Twitter's end, it appears you will need to reauthorize Twitter. When you go to reply using Twitter, you should get a box that pops up asking you to Authorize Twitter with WordPress.com.

    The window should look like this: http://cl.ly/image/2K2y0R473S0n

    You may need to change settings to allow pop up windows if you do not see that window appear.

    G'day and big big thanks for your time and reply. I am familiar with that pop up box and yes I have and do authorize Twitter

    The error message appears after that.

    The problem stems from the fact I need to update the version of av1 to av1.1 and I don't know how to do that.. Thank you Hope you have a great day and hope someone can help

  10. Hi mickeydownunder,

    It looks like we were able to pinpoint what was happening here and resolved the issue. Please let me know if it's working for you now.

  11. I just managed to post a twitter comment on a blog that wasn't working a couple of days ago.
