After failed login via GitHub, all subsequent attempts fail

I tried to login to a Discourse site via GitHub, but got distracted because I wasn’t logged into GH at the time and closed the login window. Then I logged into GitHub from a different tab, and now whenever I try to login via github on that site (for the past ~2 weeks) I get this error:

Sorry, there was an error authorizing your account. Perhaps you did not approve authorization?

I don’t see any option to “just try again” and it’s kinda frustrating. It’s not github or all discourse sites, because I’m logged in here on meta right now via github just fine. Maybe I could clear some cookies to resolve my immediate issue.

Attempting to log in to that site using Github fails for me with the same error; I suspect the problem is not specific to you and the secrets are incorrect.

I suggest emailing the site admin and asking them to check.


Oh ok, thanks for checking. I’ll email them.
