Rotating Tweets (Twitter widget and shortcode)
[resolved] Oxygen theme conflict (6 posts)

    I'm working on a site using the Oxygen Theme and would like to use Rotating Tweets plugin. I like it because it's straight forward and legible. Unfortunately there seems to be a conflict of some sort preventing the tweets from rotating. Testing points to a conflict with the Oxygen them.

    I've turned off all the plugins to check.
    If I load the Twenty Ten Theme the tweets rotate.
    If I load the Oxygen them it's static.

    Any advice would be gratefully receive.

    Here is a link to the test site.

    Thanks,

    David,

    If you look at the console.log (normally via [F12]), there's a clash between versions of cycle - because Oxygen loads its own version in functions.php called oxygen_cycle.

    I've tweaked the development version of Rotating Tweets to use Oxygen's version of the script (which seems to work!).

    Hi Martin,

    Thank you for your quick response.

    No luck I'm afraid. I've loaded the version linked to your last post version 1.4.4 but unfortunately I can't seem to get the feed to rotate?

    I've also attempted to comment out the oxygen_cycle line from the functions.php file with no success.

    I've checked this on Safari, Firefox and Chrome to check if it was to do with the browser.

    Any thoughts welcome.

    With thanks,

    David

    David,

    I think I know what the problem is (although you would need to look at the console.log to check. Hit [F12] and then click on console to see it.). The Oxygen template is using a fairly minimal version of jQuery.cycle and Rotating Tweets may have been asking for a transition it didn't support (i.e. anything other than 'fade').

    The latest development version is a bit more aggressive. It bins your template's version of jQuery.cycle and uses the (more complete) Rotating Tweets one instead. This should solve the problem.

    Let me know if it works.

    Best wishes,

    Martin

    Hi Martin,

    From your changes I've managed to get rotating tweets to work with the Oxygen theme.

    Thank you!.

    I'm not sure if I have accessed the code in the most efficient way but it's worked for me? I copied this from the 'developer log' from the Plugin Directory developers page . I was able to see a list of your code along with a version marked with the 'Oxygen mod'.

    Best wishes,

    David

    David,

    Very glad it's working now! :-)

    I've built the code into the latest version - so if you upgrade to 1.4.5 it should all work properly!

    Normally the easiest way to access the Development Version is to download it as a .zip file, unzip it and upload it via FTP.

    Best wishes,

    Martin
