IBD Twitter


IBD Twitter displays yours latest tweets in your WordPress blog.


*  Simply
*  Customizable
*  Widget support
*  No options page (yes, its a feature)
*  Uses WordPress resources (no extra files needed)
*  Detects URLs, e-mail address and @username replies


If you use WordPress widgets, just drag the widget into your sidebar and configure. If widgets are not your thing, use the following code to display your public Twitter messages:

<?php twitter_messages("username"); ?>

For more info (options, customization, etc.) visit the plugin homepage.


The plug in provides the following CSS classes:

* ul.twitter: the main ul (if list is activated)
* li.twitter-item: the ul items (if list is activated)
* p.twitter-message: each one of the paragraphs (if msgs > 1)
* .twitter-timestamp: the timestamp span class
* a.twitter-link: the tweet link class
* a.twitter-user: the @username reply link class


Rick – This plugin is based on Twitter for WordPress with some minor tweaks like not displaying a timestamp, but instead showing time passed since posted like twitter does on its site.
