Outputs tweets from any Twitter users, hashtag or keyword through the Widget interface. Can be called via shortcode or PHP function call and supports
This is determined by your settings within the widget. The default is set to 5.
If using the update frequency "Live (uncached)" ThinkTwit will show tweets that have occurred as far back as "max days" (up to the last 7 days, due to restrictions in the Twitter API). However, any other option will utilise ThinkTwit's own cache and will therefore display anything within the cache (up to "max days").
If you aren't caching tweets then a message will be shown stating: "There have been no tweets for the past 7 days", but if you are caching tweets then it will simply show the tweets stored in the cache, even if they are older than 7 days. This message can be customised within the settings.
ThinkTwit uses the widget API so should be styled correctly by your theme. It has some default CSS but you may, however, wish to make minor CSS changes which will override this. If so you should find the following information handy:
ol.thinkTwitTweets #tweet-nwhere n is the number of the tweet
ol.thinkTwitTweets li.thinkTwitTweet a.thinkTwitAuthor
ol.thinkTwitTweets li.thinkTwitTweet a.thinkTwitSuffix
ol.thinkTwitTweets li.thinkTwitTweet a.thinkTwitContent
ol.thinkTwitTweets li.thinkTwitTweet span.thinkTwitPublished
NOTE: Be sure to use the id to access each style in order to over-write the default CSS.
Turn on no-caching in the widget settings.
Your theme is probably not setup properly. AJAX requires a location to insert the returned data from the server-side call. ThinkTwit puts it in to the div that contains the widget. A WordPress theme written correctly should output a unique id for each widget that is output. Inform the developer of your theme to have the following (or something similar) in their register_sidebar function:
'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">'
You are getting this error because the allow_url_fopen option is disabled on your server. You can resolve this by either enabling it, or if you are unable to do this (it may be a shared server) you can enable CURL in the widget options.
You may need to clear and rebuild your cache. See uninstall instructions.
You can apply a filter - see the following URL for an example:
images folder may not exist or it may not be writeable (this folder is required for caching avatars). You must create the directory if it
doesn't already exist or you must chmod it to 755 or higher so that the web server can write to the folder (depends on your web server
