I have a strange issue regarding social networking plugins used on my website using vanilla. The plugins were working fine off lately. However these were disabled for a while. Now when I enable them again and try to login using the credentials they throw up an error which is mentioned below. I understand that this might be caused to curl. But I see through phpinfo() that curl is enabled on the server.Could anyone please guide me on this ? Thank you.

Fatal error: Wrong parameters for Exception([string $exception [, long $code ]]) in/hermes/waloraweb095/b2597/pow.globaldelight/htdocs/globaldelightforum/plugins/Twitter/class.twitter.plugin.phpon line 305

    Cheers guys the problem seems to have been resolved now. I owe you a beer @adriansonline :) cheers. Its due to the same reason you mentioned up here. Thank you.

    However there is this small thing that's like eating up my brain. When I use the facebook plugin to Login , it will take me to a page where I need to enter a uniqueID .. I am not really sure on how a unique ID should look like or If am doing something wrong with the settings. Though I have tried all sorts of combinations for a unique ID it keeps on looping on the same page and does not take me forward .. Twitter works absolutely fine.. Any light on this one ?? Thanks in advance
