[resolved] Twitter avatars not showing on imported comments (2 posts)

    Hi

    I have the latest 2.7.15 version installed so most of the operations are working well with the new twitter api.

    The one issue that may need to be updated is getting the avatar of twitter users when you import tweets. I'm getting a placeholder but no image. Started on 11th when the old twitter api was finished.

    Thanks
    Kevin

    if anyone else is having a problem with missing twitter profile images on imported tweets then for an emergency you can delete line 495
    $avatar = "<img alt='{$id_or_email->comment_author}' src='http://api.twitter.com/1/users/profile_image?screen_name=$fbuID&size=bigger' class='avatar avatar-{$size} photo avatar-default' height='{$size}' width='{$size}' />";

    of the nxs_functions.php file.

    This will then show the standard wordpress comment avatar which is not perfect but at least removes the missing icon placeholder and so looks better.

    When I get the time I'll try and write a fix for this. Sadly the new twitter 1.1 api is not very developer friendly (could this be the beginning of the end for Twitter?) and I don't have a lot of time to devote to this.
