twitter tools issues (5 posts)

    When posting from the admin interface, failures (say due to a bad password) aren't passed back up the chain. The return for do_tweet isn't checked, and the admin page isn't configured to display failures.

    If you post a tweet through the WP interface it would be nice to immediately reflect that tweet.

    Deleting a tweet doesn't delete it on the WP side, even after updating.

    Currently on the "nice to have" list for the 1.0 release. It does check this in the sidebar posting interface.

    The tweet has to come in from Twitter to get the info they add. An immediate check can fail because of race conditions. I guess I could artificially set the last update to check in 2 min or something.

    Hmm, not sure if there's a good way to handle this. Likely that's just how it will work.

    Can you add the tweet directly to the database with a blank tw_id? The twitter check could first delete all tweets that are null, to prevent duplication issues.

    If you can add a blurb into the readme about the deletion thing that's probably good enough. Possibly add something about deleting it from the database.

    Or you could add a "delete a tweet" option to the admin interface. If you include documentation on how to find the tweet id you won't need to worry about a big interface.

    No, it's not worth all the side effects this would cause.

    Good idea.

    Not really looking to build a full admin interface for managing tweets, which is what this would turn into.

    I've asked this elsewhere but never got an answer.

    How can I adjust the start time for the Twitter Tools post? It's on GMT; I want to start the day at midnight local time. That's -7 hours. How/Where do I make the adjustment?
