When I try to Authorize 2Cloud on Chrome, nothing happens

So when I go to authorize 2Cloud's request for permission I get an "about:blank" page and that's it. If I go back and check the settings every field is blank and the extension is not fully set up.

I've never had this problem on previous installs of Chrome and I have tried enabling/disabling and reinstalling.

    Really sorry about the issues, everyone. Can someone give me console output from the blank page? http://links.2cloudproject.com/chromeconsole

    The console on the blank page are blank?

    What about the background console? Any errors there?

    I'm sorry. I do care that you're having issues. I really wish this would stop. Part of the problem is a flaky OAuth endpoint that Google has that absolutely nobody is working on fixing and is outside my control. Another part of the problem is that I just started a new job and moved, and so I'm crunched for time.

    I'm really sorry. I help how I can as I can. If I can't help you quickly enough, consider checking the source code on github.com/2cloud and seeing if you can fix it. If you can't, I maintain a list of services that perform similar functions at http://www.2cloudproject.com/alternatives. I'd be sad that my software was so frustrating to use that you went with an alternative, but my goal is to help you enjoy your technology. If you're not enjoying it, than nobody's winning.

    If you're interested in helping me debug this issue, I'd be happy to arrange a time this weekend to sit and chat with some people and try some things out.

    Hello, I absolutely love 2cloud! I have been using it for a couple years now - at home, work and on all of my Android devices. Thank you for giving us users this amazing functionality!!

    I have been encountering a similar issue with the OAuth redirection page for a month or two that I have not been able to fix. I have read through the other threads - I have tried switching to different time servers and updating my clock to no avail (DST is set correctly also).

    Here is the console output when I click 'Allow Access' on the OAuth Redirect page:

    Denying load of chrome-extension://hkelgkihphkegiaagbcgglfidabmgkgp/chrome_ex_oauth.... Resources must be listed in the web_accessible_resources manifest key in order to be loaded by pages outside the extension. auth?scope=appengine&oauth_token=4%2FszZJ14PC0ewAno2zHgcxESdcNK8n&hd=default:1

    I miss 2cloud very much.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I just uploaded version 2.1.8.

    This should fix the issues with login.

    I'm really sorry for the problems.

    The problem isn't fixed for me :( Just came across your product and really interested in using it. Can't set it up on either my computer or my Android 4.04 phone

    I had this issue too when entering an own subdomain as mentioned. After looking at the console I saw that the extension could not load some resources (404). When I use the default domain name it works. But on my Android device it is complaining now about wrong time settings :-/

    Ok, after restarting the app on the phone the time problem went away. Works now. After that struggle I am happy now ;-)
