Telligent Connect - Object reference not set


I'm using Sitecore 7.1 + Telligent Community 7.6 with Telligent Connect 3.0 and i've been following the installation and configuration guide for Telligent Connect 3.0, but i can't get it working.

After inserting the Telligent Evolution widget on my Sitecore page through the Page Editor, i click on the configuration button for the widget and i get a "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" error.

Here is the complete stack trace:

[NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.]

   System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive() +71
   System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint) +3178

Anyone have any idea what i did wrong? I've created the OAuth settings on my Telligent Community site and i've done all the editing of the .config file in my Sitecore installation. I'm using Sitecore authentication by the way.

  • First, the connector does not currently support Sitecore 7.1, only 7.0 and earlier.  Doesn't mean it won't work, but we don't test on 7.1 or support it yet.

    This is also not enough to troubleshoot.  You will need to provide fiddler traces and copies of your TelligentEvolution.config file.  I encourage you to open a ticket with our support team, but you should still only use 7.0 as that is what is supported for Sitecore.

    to be clear, that version of the connector only supports Sitecore 7.0 and 6.6
