[resolved] [Plugin: Twitter Mentions as Comments] Show tweet, server load (4 posts)

    Hello,

    Interesting to see this plugin work. Tried some others, but glad to say this one works very well.

    Two questions though:

    1)- do you think there could be an option to show the tweet in full? Rather than just the link?

    2)- what's the server load like on this considering it's pulling data every 1 hour? If set to manual, and no cron job, going to cause any issues?

    Thanks

    1) Tweets should be showing in full, is that not the case?

    2) If using automatic scheduling, when visitor loads page, once an hour, WordPress makes an AJAX call to run the process in the background, so the user's page load should not be slowed. It pulls all the relevant posts, defined on the settings page (all posts, last X posts, front page only, etc.). For each post it will make one API call out to twitter, and then again, will make an API call for each new author found. This process isn't server intensive as the majority of it is simply waiting for the API call to come back.

    No, when set to trackback/pingback one just gets a user name and link. In show in comments, yes. I guess I should have clarified I meant trackback / pingback. If there was an option to show, or now show.

    2) Okay that's good to know. Thank you for the clarification

    re: 1) that's a theme / WP issue. If you switch them to comments, the full text should be shown (or modify your database retroactively).
