Cannot authenticate with Google Drive

UPDATE: I managed to make it work with a workaround. I retrieved the URL executed after the Google Drive authentication (using the browser dev tool), which is:

https://<website-domain.com>/wp-admin/admin.php?page=WPvivid&action=wpvivid_google_drive_finish_auth&main_tab=storage&sub_tab=googledrive&sub_page=storage_account_google_drive&auth_id=wpvivid-auth-<xxxxxxx>

Then I paste it directly in the browser, this time I got redirected to the correct page (WPVivid remote storage), and I finished the setup.

I don’t use a redirection or a security plugin.

Hope this helps to get closer to the answer!

  • WPVivid version 0.9.99
  • WordPress version 6.4.3

Hello,

I’m pleased to hear that you’ve managed to resolve it on your own. Once redirected to the home page, you can access your website back-end and navigate to WPvivid Cloud Storage to complete the authentication process.

As the issue is fixed, I am going to mark it as resolved. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you need help with anything else.

Have a nice day.

Hello,

Thank you for your message.

My fix is just a workaround, I was able to do it because I made use of the browser dev tools. But for a person who does not know what is “browser dev tools”, it is still an issue. Normally, there shouldn’t be a redirection to website home page after Google Drive authentication.

In my humble opinion, this deserves an investigation.

My best regards,

Have a nice day!
