[resolved] Twitter handle in widget (6 posts)

    It took me some time to get your (marvelous, congrats!) plugin working.
    This was because the field name Twitter Handle is misleading.
    A Twitter handle is the full URL.
    What the widgets expects is just the Twitter user name.
    I suggest you rename the field to just that: 'Twitter user name' and
    also explain this field in your 'installation' text where you talk about the widget.

    Hello,

    that sounds interesting - although this also does not work for me.
    Can you give an example?
    I now entered
    https://twitter.com/search?q=XXXXuser

    Thanks!

    Sumukha: as violacase points out above the field expects just the Twitter username on its own. Not a URL

    Hello,
    I tried that too. Handle, username, with or without @ - all error even after refreshing.

    Thx

    Could you open a new support thread with your specific error please?

    @timwhitlock
    I don't think Sumukha is confronted with an error. He just doesn't know what to type in the 'Twitter Handle' field.

    @Sumukha
    My Twitter Handle is https://twitter.com/violacase
    My Twitter Username is violacase

    In the widget field 'Twitter Handle' you have to fill in your username, NOT your handle.
    A bit confusing, yes, that's why I posted this issue.
