DevBuddy Twitter Feed

A Twitter (v1.1) feed plugin for the developers that's fully customisable and support timelines, searches and lists.

How do I contribute to this plugin?

Fork from the DevBuddy Twitter Feed GitHub repo, make your changes and make a pull request.

How do I create my own template tag and shortcode?

Simply take a look at the sample files in the assets directory of this plugin. The code in these files can be copied over to your theme (included in your functions.php file) and customised to suit your needs. The sample files are well commented and will work right out of the box.

How can I use this plugin as a native feature of my theme rather than as a plugin?

Move the plugin folder from the plugin directory into your theme's directory. Then include the devbuddy-twitter-feed.php file from your functions.php file. After that, open up the devbuddy-twitter-feed.php file and amend the DBTF_PATH and DBTF_URL constants accordingly. And that's it.

Can I hide this plugin's option page from the WordPress admin menu?

You can. Simply add if ( is_object( $dbtf ) ) { $dbtf->hide_wp_admin_menu_item(); } to your theme's functions.php file. If you've moved the plugin folder into your theme and included it, you'll need to ensure that this line comes after the include for it to work.

Why am I not getting any results when I render a search feed?

According to Twitter, using the API to perform a search has a recency restriction of one week. This means that if your search term hasn't been tweeted in the past week Twitter will return no results, thus resulting in an empty feed.
