Support » Plugin: Rotating Tweets (Twitter widget and shortcode) » Official Format Variable Question

    Hello! Great plug-in!

    I am using the official_format=’1′ variable because I really like way it looks. I would also like to tweak it just a bit, such as hiding the timestamp, etc.

    [rotatingtweets screen_name="MYUSERID" show_meta_timestamp='0' show_meta_screen_name='0' timeout ='7000'  official_format='1']

    But there are no changes at all; everything still shows and the time for each to show is still 4 secs. Do the other variables not work if the the official_format is set? Or am I doing something wrong?

    Thank you!!

    There are a couple of fixes for this.

    I’ve adjusted the development version of the plug-in to address this – although I don’t know how it will work.

    Alternatively, you can do it via CSS in wp-content/uploads/rotatingtweets.css – for example:

    div.rtw_name {
       display:none;
    }
    div.rtw_id {
       display:none;
    }
    div.rtw_timestamp {
       display:none;
    }

    or

    div.rtw_name,
    div.rtw_id,
    div.rtw_timestamp {
       display:none;
    }

    I’d suggest trying the CSS first. I may not implement the hard coded change because it looks likely that it will cause problems with widgets for current users unfortunately…

    Thank you very much for your quick response! The only thing I couldn’t get to work was the div.rtw_timestamp part. I looked in the rotatingtweets.php and there weren’t any instances of rtw_timestamp. I found two of the others. I just changed the rotatingtweets_timestamp_link to short and am ok with the results. If there is a different way to hide the timestamp, please let me know. Thank you very much for everything!

    The latest development version has this built-in, but it’s not in the main script yet.
