    I've added tweet blender to contentcurrents.com. I posted some new tweets to twitter (@contentcurrents) today, but they are not showing up on the blog? I've hit refresh a bunch of times on tweet blender and have been waiting a few hours. Thanks for your help.

    Tweet Blender uses Twitter search to pull tweets in. I'm looking at http://search.twitter.com/search?q=from%3Acontentcurrents+OR+%40contentcurrents and see the same tweets as on your site so it is working properly. The issue is that they don't yet show up in search on Twitter. I'm working on a fix to work around Twitter's issues.

    Thank you... Based on this limitation, how frequently should I expect tweets to be pulled in?

    I don't have much visibility into Twitter's business logic but they did publish some info regarding the issues of tweets missing from search (a very common issue by the way). Check out http://help.twitter.com/forums/10713/entries/42646. Bottom line is it could either be a Twitter bug or tweets might not show because Twitter search thinks they are not relevant.

    In the past Tweet Blender used a different API to pull in tweets for specific users. Search API was used only for hashtags and keywords. I see now that search API is not ready for prime time so I'll provide an option to revert back to the older user timeline API that pulls all the tweets for a user all the time and works well.

    Give me about a week to add it back.

    Two questions:

    1. Are all Tweet Blender users seeing the same delay as me?

    2. What about using the Twitter RSS feed, which appears to be current?

    1. Not all but I've received a few reports like that. I even filed a ticket with Twitter for one of the users (http://getsatisfaction.com/tweet_blender/topics/cant_see_my_own_tweets-1akna. They did something with his account and tweets started appearing.

    2. The RSS is the same as that older API I mentioned above.

    Should I file a ticket for my Twitter account?

    Thanks, again, for your help.

    Yes, that might be a good idea. And if Twitter doesn't address it then just upgrade to the next feature release of Tweet Blender once it's available.

    Thanks for your help... I contacted Twitter. They acknowledged my concern, but did not fix the problem.... When will the next release of Tweet Blender be available? I'm eager to launch my blog, but don't want to do it until this is working. Thanks, so much, for your help. I appreciate it.

    Hmm, that's some pressure :)

    I'm working on it right now. Should be live shortly.

    Just pushed out 3.1.6 which includes a new checkbox under "Advanced" tab that allows to switch back to user timeline API. Enjoy!

    It works!!!! Thank you so much for being responsive here and for making the needed fix. I really appreciate your help. I'm new to WordPress and I am so appreciative of your assistance. I spent hours and hours experimenting with twitter widgets and found yours to be the best. Thanks, again!!!!

    Hi. I've installed Tweet Blender yesterday, and at first it seemed to be working fine, but then it just stopped refreshing. The last update was 20h ago, and it has been still ever since.

    I've tried your suggested fix of switching to user timeline API, but with no luck. I've then deactivated/reactivated the plugin, and it's still not working. Strangest thing is that it seems to have completely frozen in time, because when I reactivated the plugin I added different Twitter accounts than the ones I had before, but I'm still seeing the old ones, with the tweets from 20h ago. The widget for tags has never worked.

    I've noticed that the plugin site is also down. Has the service broken down?

    Thanks

    PderGon,
    Plugin site is down due to high traffic - I'll restore it tonight.

    What's the url of your site? I'll take a look at your refresh issues.

    tweet blender stopped working after update 2 days ago. Anyone else having this problem? can I go back to the version that was working?

    @neuropagan: what's the URL of your site? I'll check it out.

    Did you upgrade from 3.1.6 to 3.1.7? or was it from an older version?

    You can definitely go to an older version - download a version from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tweet-blender/download/ and then upload it via your WP admin panel. However, it would be great if you could give me a chance to check out your site and see what's up so if there is a bug I can patch it. Thanks!

    So far the only thing I saw off was your list of sources. You have "http://twitter.com/jayyvonmonroe" listed as a source. A better way would be to put "@jayyvonmonroe" there. Let's try this first.

    how about the hash tags these are the tags most commonly used between the fans and they want a way to keep up in one place which is what i'm trying to provide. I put this site together as a fan and i'm not a member of the troupe.I'm doing this out of my love for the troupe and don't get a dime for any of it any help i can get or suggestions on how i can best use this tool is very much appreciated. Thank you so much for this widget and I hope i can use it as a great tool for the fans of the troupe.

    Don't know if it helps but the api requests go down to 0 extremely fast despite what I have the refresh set to. such as right now it is set to refresh every 10 minutes. 10 minutes after it says API requests from blog server: 150 it will say API requests from blog server: 0 you have 50 minutes until....

    It would be great if you could email a temporary admin login to your blog so I can monitor the server API and try to trouble-shoot it for you. If that's possible please email to tweetblender AT gmail DOT com

    Ok I sent you a log in. I appreciate the help.

    Thanks for the login. I found a few issues but they were not bugs in my code. Tweet Blender is working on your site just fine now.

    Here is what I've done:
    1) Removed one of your sources as it was private and was popping up a login window from Twitter
    2) Due to errors in other plugins Tweet Blender couldn't initialize. I added the following code to the footer.php of your theme right before the closing </body> tag:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    // Added by Kirill Novitchenko for Tweet Blender plugin
    if (typeof(TB_start) == 'function') {
    TB_start();
    }
    </script>

    3) There were some CSS issues so I added 1 line to the style.css of your theme (at the end) and the following line in the footer.php:
    jQuery('a.tb_refreshlink img').css('border','none').css('padding-top','0');

    You should be all set now. You can kill my temp admin login. Enjoy!

    On my website http://www.jpb-design.nl I added your plugin this week. Like it very mucht! Unfortunately updates are not complete. Under the "Advanced" tab I selected the checkbox that allows to switch back to user timeline API. Doesn't help. I still miss reply's.

    Any solution?

    @jpdeboer: replies should come in via timeline API but make sure you check your settings under "Filters" tab. There is checkbox labeled "Hide tweets that are in reply to other tweets".

    I looked at your site and at your feed - all the tweets in the feed are also on the site. Is there a particular tweet you are not seeing?

    Note that retweets (not replies) are not supported by Tweet Blender yet since Twitter moved them to a separate endpoint in the API and enabling support for them eats up API limit way too quickly.
