Twitter Tools stopped updating (15 posts)

    I am using Twitter Tools, and a few weeks ago, it stopped doing weekly updates. I tested to see if individual tweets can be turned into blog posts, and that works, so the connection to Twitter is working. But the digests aren't. I'm using 2.0. Any suggestions?

    Okay, daily digests work, but not weekly. I've tested the plugin on my other blogs, including one still at WP 2.8.3, and none of them will do a weekly update. Anyone? Anyone?

  3. That's very odd. I do a weekly (Sunday) update and it works just fine.

    Did you try the Reset Digest button?

    Yeah... I've done that multiple times. Nothing.

  5. Assuming all your blogs are on the same server/host/isp, have they made any upgrades or noted anything funky with cron?

    Hmm. I dunno. It's BlueHost, which is the hosting company WP recommends. But I'll call and see if they can help...

    It's not the host. I tried using Twitter Digest, and it posted correctly. Unfortunately, that plugin has one option: Post every day. I don't really want that. But it's better than Twitter Tools, which is basically useless. I can't believe how many bizarre bug reports are out there. Lost of people have simply given up on it.

  8. It's got to be a conflict with something else, since I've got it running without any issues and a lot of people aren't having this issue. :/

    So, I was able to get the tools working on three other blogs on my server. But not on my main blog. Even after I turned off every other plugin, it doesn't work. I also deleted DB and reinstalled the tools. Still, nothing happens. It's bizarre.

  10. I wonder if it has to do with Twitter's spaztic API recently...

    I am running into the same issue. I am running WordPress 2.8.4.

    It is not a chron issue - working properly for other plugins.

    The tweets are being captured by the database - it is not the Twitter API.

    Have tried resetting the digest, reset tweet checking, updating the tweets, etc. Also tried deactivating the Thesis Theme, eliminating all plugins except Twitter Tools, reinstalled Twitter Tools.

    All indications are that there is some form of bug within Twitter Tools impacting the Weekly Digest functionality.

    Hope Alex can help...

    I'm pretty sure Alex will only help if one of us pays him to.

    I've got the same issue, I guess. It used to work just fine but all of a sudden between to posts within half an hour it didn't. First post got posted, second did not. I figured it had to do something with me posting two posts short after one another, but twitter tools did not recover since then. I checked all settings but they are fine. I guess I can rule out conflicts with other plugins as I did not install any updates or new plugins between the two mentioned posts.
    A real bugger this one :-(

  14. This seems to be a pretty sporadic issue and given how any Twitter app (like Seesmic or Twhirl etc) has been having similar issues, I think it's Twitter and not the plugin in this case. I've used other plugins and I get the same, really irregular, results.

    what version of PHP is your server running? i believe there's some PHP 5 specific code still in there, no?
