Support » Plugin: Digicution Simple Twitter Feed » Custom Field for feed source

  • Hello!

    I’m trying to have only one twitter plugin in my sidebar but i want to be able to chose which user or hashtag i want as a source for my page or post.

    I’m using Advanced Custom Fields to create the custom fields on the edition page.

    I wanted to know if it was possible to pass an argument (in this case the value of the custom field) to your dt_twitter(); function telling it which user’s feed i want to show?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi blackjak231,

    Thanks for taking the time to look at my plugin 🙂

    At present, the plugin does not have the capability to host multiple Twitter accounts. This feature has been requested, and I hope to be able to get round to implementing this in the coming months. However, it will require a fair bit of coding in order to keep the plugin in-line with Twitter’s API rate limits. Each user will need to pull data from a single call so if you were to say, have 100 users, then your rate limit could be reached very quickly 🙂

    If I do then I will definitely add an implementation where you can select this via the function call.

    If you want to take a look at the code (dt_display.php whill be the file required) I’ll be happy to help if you want to attempt an implementation yourself.

    Kind Regards,

    Dan Perkins 🙂
