A widget that properly handles twitter feeds, including parsing @username, #hashtags, and URLs into links.
Tried to get support, and the developer simply quit responding.
Updated plugin via admin and site disappeared. Had to do entire DB backup and remove plugin to get site back up. There definitely could be a compatibility issue on the site but this update alone brought the site down.
Asked a single question about custom .css because everything I had tried wasn't effecting the plugin. Got no response. Uninstalled.
There's a lot of great code underneath this plugin, but it no longer works. Either Twitter's API changed or the plugin did, but there are several points of failure that now exist, rendering the plugin unusable.
$this->_token comes back as a string, but the code is expecting an Array. The net result makes it impossible to authorize any Twitter account, because the
oauth_token sent to the Twitter API comes out as a single character. I managed to get around this with a couple of nested
explode() calls that parse the response into an expected format, but once I got my account Authorized, it showed up as "@o" in the list of accounts (which is decidedly not my account name), and no tweets were displayed. At this point, I threw up my hands and deleted the plugin, instead switching to Simple Twitter Tweets, which installed and configured in seconds.
Had the same trouble as others -- authorization needed. But from that point on, you're kind of lost. :(
Plugin used to be great, but it's not working anymore.
Backend admin keeps on saying: "you need to authorize your twitter account".
Authorizing the Twitter accounts does not work.
It was a pretty good plugin, but simply does not work anymore. It keeps on saying: "you need to authorize your twitter account", when this is done, nothing happens. Tweets won't show up, keeps on saying "loading tweets". Since this is the essence of Twitter Widget Pro and nothing is done about this (check out the support page, simply full with the same problem), I give it the lowest rating until this is fixed, right now it's useless!!
This used to work perfectly until this update, now you have to waste your time adding pointless info. Thanks to jetpack for wordpress, you don't need this anyway.
1. Use automatic installer.
2. In WordPress admin go to 'Appearance' -> 'Widgets' and add "Twitter Widget Pro" to one of your widget-ready areas of your site
Yeah, so you kind of left out all the twitter API config crap that doesn't actually work.
And where is this "automatic installer"? I added this to /plugins on our server and added the widget to my site, but the API config stuff just doesn't work. How do I get past this? I got a Consumer key and a Consumer Secret, but "Authorize New Account" does not work.
