Publicize: Messenger Connect – not working for me

  • Author

    On my post edit page there’s a panel:

    “To enable Publicize: Messenger Connect, you will need to authorize your account on Bill Bennett to connect with your Messenger Connect account.”

    It sounds good, so off I trot to click on the link.

    There follows a small page where I can log-in to my Microsoft account. I forget what it is called these days. Once upon a time it was a Microsoft Passport.

    I then get at message saying:

    Error Accessing Dashboard

    You are logged in as “billbennettnz” and do not not have the necessary privileges to access the dashboard for “Bill Bennett”. Please ask an administrator of the site to invite you.

    Which is strange, because billbennettnz IS the administrator of the site.

    Why is this happening?

    The blog I need help with is
