    Hi all,

    Thought I would share, I am using v. 1.3.1 of this widget, and when I installed it, the link on the timestamp was not leading me to my twitter page.

    So I changed this

    <a href="http://www.twitter.com/<?php echo $screen_name; ?>" target="_blank" title="Follow <?php echo $name; ?>...

    to this:

    <a href="http://www.twitter.com/<?php echo $name; ?>" target="_blank" title="Follow <?php echo $name; ?>...

    and it works fine now,

    JC

    Please note $screen_name is actually the correct variable.

    Users whose screen name differs from the the Twitter name will find an error with your setting.

    e.g.
    $name = firstname Lastname [Display name]
    $username - fistnamelastname [account username]

    It has been found that sometimes error connections to the Twitter API mis-associate this and the code simply defaults to the root of Twitter, we are looking at this.

    Thanks for downloading the plugin and hope it serves you well
