FAQ

Or here: Documentation

The Twitter Bird image doesn’t appear! What’s happened?

Sorry, I don’t know. Try to uninstall/install the plugin or just pick up the image in the svn repository.

Why the widget show me an error of load for my tweets ?

First: do you have the latest version of this plugin?
Second: did you find the settings page, create your Twitter plugin?

My tweets are not always updated

Since the v1.1.3, the cache system prefers keep your old tweets instead of displaying a error message due to a lack of tweets inside the Twitter flow. It’s a kind of security: old tweets are better than error message 🙂

You need to custom the design, hide something ?

You can use lot of CSS classes and filters to help you in you quest 🙂
See the documentation.html files inside your plugin folder !
