Reliable Twitter

Adds a sidebar widget to display Twitter updates using the more-reliable Google Ajax API.

2.2.1 (Mar 16, 2012)

  • Removed console.log() entry. Shouldn't have been in production

2.2 (Dec 30, 2011)

  • Allows Custom RSS Feeds (for troubleshooting purposes)
  • If encountered, show feed retrieval error

2.1.2 (Jul 25, 2011)

  • Fixed bug created in 2.1 causing an extra number of tweets to be shown (if you entered 1, 2 were shown).

2.1.1 (Jun 12, 2011)

  • Fixed bug created in 2.1 causing all responses to show when "hide replies" was turned on.

2.1 (Jun 11, 2011)

  • Improved JavaScript to ensure that we don't get stuck in an endless loop when there are too many hidden replies.

2.0 (Feb 21, 2011)

  • Upgraded to widget API so you can now put more than one widget in the sidebars.
  • Added "Hide Replies" feature
  • Optional loading icon shows while feed is loading
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: Because of the structural change to the widget API there are a few things to keep in mind. Upgrading will temporarily break your implementation: ** After upgrading, immediately go to the widgets page and re-insert the Reliable Twitter widget into your sidebar. Your old settings will be pre-loaded, so just click "Save" and the upgrade will be complete. ** All ID-based references have been changed to classes. If your css was references #twitter_div, change it to .twitter_div.

  • Added a classname to the date link for design options.

1.2 (Sept 18, 2009)
