Support » Plugin: Latest Tweets Widget » Links don't show

  • Resolved wpnewbie69


    I noticed that the links get truncated for some reason making them unclickable.

    Angry Asian American, a new show from @angryasianman @jennyyangtv on @ISATVofficial Watch the first angry ep. here:

    Turns into this:
    RT @Kollaboration: Angry Asian American, a new show from @angryasianman @jennyyangtv on @ISATVofficial Watch the first angry ep. here: http…

    Is this a bug or is there a setting I can change in theming?

    What version are you using?

    The current development version uses completely different approach the linkifying, so might fix your problem. Can you try it and let me know?

    Direct link to zip:

    I was using 1.0.15 before upgrading to the development version. However, the problem is still there.

    The output is exactly 140 characters so maybe there’s a limit which can be removed somehow?

    Ok, I’ll look at it.
    Can you post the link from of that tweet that has the problem, please?

    Sure, here you go:

    Sorry for the multiple posts. Not sure what happened there.

    I just tested your timeline with both the last version of the plugin 1.0.15 and also the new dev version, which will become 1.1.0.

    I can’t reproduce your problem. The link appears fine.

    Something else must be going on. Try disabling all plugins except for latest-tweets-widget.

    Strange. I just tried disabling all of my plugins and the problem still remains…

    What theme? I ran a clean install with twentyfourteen.

    I’m using the Adapt theme:

    This is the actual site it’s on (tweet on top left):

    (Currently trying to get the tweet to scroll like a marquee so don’t mind the sudden cut off.)

    I see it. I’m not going to purchase a $50 theme to test it, but have you checked if the problem persists with other themes?

    You could also try calling latest_tweets_render_html() directly and inspecting the output. That should ensure its unfiltered.

    I just activated the twenty fourteen theme with only the Latest Tweet plugin activated and added:

    <?php echo latest_tweets_render_html( 'ISATVOfficial', 1, true ); ?>

    and I still get the same output…

    You can see it on the site.

    Ah, I can reproduce now.
    the link you gave me was for @Kollaboration which is fine. I see now it’s the RT that is broken. Now I can reproduce I should be able to fix. I’ll get back shortly.

    Awesome, thank you!

    I’m sorry to say that the truncated tweet is coming from twitter.

    The retweet would url be

    Which if you click it you’ll see redirects to the original tweet. The actual retweet has “RT @…” at the front which pushes it over 140 characters. (As you pointed out earlier)

    The only way around this is if I request the original tweet for all 140 character RTs. That’s doable, but obviously comes with a performance overhead. As it’s probably an edge case (and there’s caching), it’s worth doing. I’ll put this on my list, but I can’t guarantee when it’ll get implemented.
