Twitter Widget Pro
Displays tweets from account instead of from list (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm trying to figure out how to get a twitter list to display with Twitter Widget Pro 2.6.0. I have Twitter username set to name_of_client, and Twitter list set to name_of_list and the widget displays all the tweets from the account name_of_client instead of the list. I've also tried setting Twitter username to blank. It still shows name_of_client tweets. How do I get it to display tweets from the list?

    Thanks,
    Tom Adams

    I've been pulling my hair out with this too. In the end, I looked at the widget code.

    If you set the Twitter username in the widget, it will get tweets from that user. If you set the username, it ignores any list name.

    If you set the list name in the widget but leave the username blank, it will get tweets included in that list.

    You may need to exit the Widgets page and go back to it to get the widget settings to reset themselves if you make changes to the plugin.

    (I only use the sidebar widget, I don't use shortcodes. They may behave differently.)
