Is it possible to show more than 1 tweet at a time?
Using shortcodes, it is possible to show more than one tweet at a time, but it is not possible to show more than one tweet at a time and rotate them!
Try a shortcode like:
[rotatingtweets screen_name='mpntod' no_rotate='1' tweet_count='5']
ugh.. this only shows 1 tweet at a time?
At least it works though.
Can you send me a link? It shows five tweets for me.
I agree, I love this plugin, it’s well done, lots of options, and well supported, but is there any way it could be set to show more than one at a time AND scroll… I have a large space to fill and have been trying to figure it out. I’m very knowledgeable with PHP/jQuery so if you could just point me in the right direction that would be awesome! Thanks 🙂
It’s doable, but non-trivial.
Currently the plug-in relies on using version 1 of JQuery Cycle and there’s no way I can see of making JQuery Cycle use a carousel effect.
The thing that slightly holds me back is that lots of other plug-ins use the old version of JQuery Cycle and replacing it with a different, non-compatible version could break all of them! You certainly can’t just drop it in as a replacement. It may just be a question of renaming the function in the JQuery Cycle 2 code to something like cycle2(!) – but I haven’t taught myself enough about jQuery plugins to know if it could be that simple. I think there may also currently be fewer choices of transition than the old script, so I’d be concerned not to break earlier installations if people upgraded.
I guess one way round this might be to make it a setting on the options page, so that people could continue using the old version if they preferred – while some of us went off and worked out how to make version 2 work properly!
So all in all, not impossible, but not something that I can get to particularly soon.
However, if someone else were to do it, I’d be very interested to find a way to build it in to the next version! 🙂
The development version now does this – very basically – for shortcodes only – and only if WP_DEBUG is set to true in the
Once WP_DEBUG is set to true and Cycle2 is selected on the Rotating Tweets options page, then put
rotation_type = 'carousel'in the short-code and it might work!
If any other plug-in or the template is using jQuery.cycle, then it probably won’t…
