Twitter Feed

The Twitter Feed plugin makes including and linking to tweets on multiple Twitter accounts simple and flexible.

  1. Extract the "twitter-feed" folder from the downloaded file and put it in your WordPress "/wp-content/plugins/" folder so that the resulting path is "/wp-content/plugins/twitter-feed/".

  2. The plugin should now be viewable in the WordPress admin panel under the "Plugins -> Plugins" menu option. The plugin is entitled "Twitter Feed" and can be activated in the normal way by clicking "Activate" in the far right column.

  3. First, click on the "Twitter Control" option found within the main "Plugin" menu, and you will be directed to the Twitter Control panel. From here you should be able to select which Twitter accounts to use, how many tweets you want to display, and various other options.

  4. If you are restricting the amount of tweets on the front page, you can have a separate WordPress page displaying all the tweets from currently active accounts. To do this simply create a new page, give it a title/content etc and then add

    [twitter]

    exactly as it is written above including the square brackets, to add the Twitter application to the page. You will also need to select the page from the drop down menu in the admin panel, so that the plugin knows which page to link to.

  5. Depending on how you use and implement WordPress/your website, you may have to use the widget control menu to position where the Twitter application will appear and be utilised. To do this simply visit the "Presentation -> Widgets" menu option, and position the plugin where ever you like. In some cases it will be necessary to perform this task for the plugin to appear on your web page.
