Twitter Bubble

A sidebar widget showing the latest twitter update in a nice talk bubble, suitable for wide sidebars.

The bubble doesn't show up nicely in my sidebar, what is wrong?

It is likely that your sidebar is simply too narrow. The bubble requires a width of at least 230 pixels, and works best with at around 400 pixels or more.

It keeps showing the text "Loading..."?

Make sure your theme uses the hooks wp_head() and wp_footer, otherwise the necessary CSS and JavaScript won't be sent to your browser.

Who came up with the bubble design?

A very similar looking design was first spotted at the homepage of Danish politician Ida Auken.

Can I put it somewhere else besides the sidebar?

Yes. Simply add the template tag <?php twitter_bubble('<yourtwitterusername', 'optional prefix: '); ?> somewhere in your theme. If your theme doesn't support the hooks wp_head() and wp_footer, you will also need to place calls totwitter_bubble_head() andtwitter_bubble_footer()` in the header and footer, respectively.

I have translated the plugin into another language, now what?

Great, thanks! Please do leave a comment on the plugin's homepage http://www.mfd-consult.dk/twitter-bubble or send an e-mail with details; I'll make sure it's included in the next version.

What's in the pipeline?

A real roadmap isn't in place, but the following features are currently on the to-do list: * Translation of (copy of) JavaScript from Twitter. * Multiuser support.

Another question?
