cbnet Twitter Widget
Plugin Stopped Working (7 posts)

    The plugin stopped working altogether on my site. I tried disabling all my other plugins, but this does not solve the problem. I'm guessing this is something Twitter may have done? Any ideas?

    The plugin need an update. Twitter API has changed and a lot of twitter plugins are not working anymore. Hope the developper will update soon. As far as I know is the only one which shows only my favorites in a widget.

    Yeah it's an excellent Twitter plugin! I tested out a bunch and this was the only one that had the functionality I needed. I figured Twitter just changed their API, causing it to not work anymore. Hopefully the developer updates it to work again!

    Ahhh, the same here. I hope it can be fixed (soon) for this plugin. I loved it on my sites.

    Hi all,

    Unfortunately, I think that, with Twitter shutting down their 1.0 API, it appears that they also shut down the scripts that were at the core of this Plugin. Twitter has been moving away from such scripts, and their replacements aren't readily adaptable to wrapping into a WordPress Plugin.

    Thus, sadly, I will very likely be forced to EOL this Plugin. I'll look into it some more, and let you know.

    Chip thank you so much for getting back to us about the status of this! At least now we know it's definitely something on Twitter's end.
