Genesis Latest Tweets

    I have this installed on more than 1 site and today all latest tweets have gone and a message "about 15868 days ago" shows as my latest tweets.

    Broken and cannot fix as of yet.

    Might be related to twitter stopping v1.0 of its API: https://dev.twitter.com/blog/api-v1-is-retired

    The plug-in's developer needs to modify it to work with v1.1 of Twitter's API if it hasn't already been. This has been a long time coming so developers have had plenty of warning. All I can suggest is to get in touch with that plug-in's author to update it.

    Same problem for me too. I tweeted the developer (@wpsmith - http://wpsmith.net/), but he hasn't been on Twitter at all this year so I don't know if he's around or what.

    I'm going to embed the Twitter widget for the time being, but I really like using the Genesis version. Hopefully he updates the plugin.

    I just heard back from the developer's assistant. She's said he's out of town this week, but he plans on updating the plugin when he returns.

    Just a follow up on this, our team is taking the plugin and updating it with the latest Twitter API, and we'll hopefully be pushing out something this afternoon. We will drop a link to the new plugin once it's available for you to download and install.

    That's a relief - thought that it was just me.
    Good to hear that Studiopress are updating the plugin.

    I sounded pretty pushy in that comment. LOL. I'll wait for your update instead of pushing you for one. Thanks!

    Travis Smith (plugin dev) says he's hoping to have an update pushed out today. In the meantime, feel free to remove the Genesis Latest Tweets widget from your sidebar for now, just so it's not showing the bad link.

    I chatted with Travis last night and he was working on this. He was hoping to finish it up and test it today, with a potential release tomorrow.

    Seems very unlike Genesis and StudioPress to abandon a plug-in/widget and not have a rock solid replacement available.

    Frustrating to have to start to look for alternatives when the entire point of Genesis Framework is to have a cohesive environment.

    A prompt resolution would be greatly appreciated.

    Where did you see that they're abandoning the plugin?

    To clarify, Genesis depreciated the original widget and referred everyone to a 3rd Party Developed Plug-in that is in its' 1.0 untested and flawed release. It has not been updated to work with the latest version of WordPress. As you can see from the Posts, many are having issues with it not working at all.

    First off, the code that was used in the plugin by Travis was lifted directly from Genesis. It's the same code/functionality, along with a few things he added since he took it over. Second of all, the issues at hand have nothing to do with the latest version of WordPress -- they have to do with the API change that Twitter implemented recently.

    I am simply repeating the news: From the WordPress Plug-in page, it states: "This plugin has not been tested with the latest version of WordPress."

    Either way, and regardless of the reason, Genesis is a commercial product and should come with commercial quality updates to plug-ins/widgets in a timely fashion.

    I understand that the reason the plug-in stopped working was due to the Twitter API change but that does not alter the fact that whomever was responsible for maintaining it, was not in a position to catch the change and immediately update it so as to avoid disruption of service to the hundreds of Genesis Framework users who rely on what is usually a rock solid platform of integrated widgets and plug-ins.

    @palmercomputer - these forums are for the FREE versions of products. Commercial versions of themes or plugins are not supported on these forums so if you have an issue with studiopress, you need to take that up with them on their site/forums.

    @WPyogi - your guidance is not relevant to the support situation discussed in this thread and not helpful.

    @bgardner - I appreciate your participation in this thread and love StudioPress! I think the reason some people seem pointed regarding the Twitter API change is that the depreciation of API 1.0 has been a pretty long time coming, while the 1.1 API has been up for 6 months.

    I completely agree with you Marc, but just want to make sure there's a delineation here between StudioPress, and the plugin developer Travis. He's an incredibly talented guy, and is working hard (just got back from vacation) to get this plugin updated.

    Hi Brian, Thanks and I fully agree that is a point worth making - the Genesis Latest Tweets plugin while being for the Genesis Framework is no longer a Genesis product. And has not been for a significant period of time.

    Just a follow up, per Travis on Twitter, this should be updated today.
