[Plugin: Twitter for WordPress] Not seeming to pick up new twits

  • It’s looking like this is an issue with twitter. The RSS isn’t updating. :/

    This is happening to me too–my most recent tweet isn’t being displayed by the plug-in. However, I checked my Twitter feed and it does contain the tweet in question.

    Anybody know what might be going on here?

    I’m also having this issue. On my blog I simply get “No public Twitter messages.” displayed instead of my tweets.

    Me too. No new updates or tweets since more than a day when Twitter has been updates several times.

    Yep, me too. Does this have something to do with 2.7? I contacted the plugin author yesterday but haven’t heard back yet.

    Installed it for the first time yesterday. Worked fine. Updated to 2.7 later in the day and now it’s not working… hmmm.

    To fix this, go to Plugins -> Editor in your WordPress Admin interface. Click on “Twitter for WordPress” on the list of plugins on the right of the page. Now, under the line with the following:

    define('MAGPIE_CACHE_AGE', 120);

    Add the following line:

    define('MAGPIE_CACHE_ON', false);

    Click on the Update button at the bottom of the page. Your plugin file will need to be writeable in order to make this change. If you can’t write to plugin files directly, download the file using FTP, make the changes and upload it again.

    This turns off caching for the fetch_rss function, which appears to be the issue with 2.7. This is not a recommended solution, but it should get you by until an official fix is released.

    If you have any questions let me know.

    FYI, new version of the plugin is out now and includes the fix I posted previously.

    I just updated to the newest version of this plug-in and I immediately started getting the “No public Twitter messages.” error. I uninstalled the plugin, re-downloaded it and reinstalled. It started working for about 20 minutes then started showing the error message again. Everything was working fine before I updated. I’m still using wordpress 2.6.3. Could this be the problem? Is there a way for my to downgrade to the older version of the plugin?

    Update: It started working again. Seems to just be going in and out of service.

    Unfortunately, the plugin isn’t working any more. If activated, the sidebar and the footer templates aren’t included. I get no PHP error within the website’s source code.

    Furthermore the widgets page in the wp-admin section isn’t working. No widgets are shown in the related sidebar.

    If the plugin is disabled, everything is working fine. I use the new version 1.9.2.

    Here is what I see is going on. Two issues: one with twitter limiting request and the other with WP 2.7 + version 1.9.2 + caching.

    joelennon posted a fix above for people using 2.7. Apparently having this plugin do caching in WP 2.7 causes the sidebar to break. (?) So the solution was to turn caching off within the plugin.

    The problem with this is Twitter limits request of your RSS feed to 100 per hour. Which is why it stops working after a set amount of time, then start working again.

    Proposed Fix: if you not using WP 2.7 turn caching on in the plugin. If you are using 2.7 then wait for an update or just hope you don’t have more than 100 request per hour.

    FYI: This is just my hypothesis about what is going on.

    I added the line:

    define(‘MAGPIE_CACHE_ON’, false);

    as suggested by joelennon and it seemed to work for about five minutes then my Tweets dissappeared again.

    Would extending the age help at all? For example:

    Changing
    define(‘MAGPIE_CACHE_AGE’, 120);

    to somethign like:
    define(‘MAGPIE_CACHE_AGE’, 240);

    I have no idea. But I sure would like to have my tweets back on my blog. I spent hours fixing all the problems created by 2.7 and now it seems I have another day of troubleshooting ahead of me. It’s frustrating for sure.

    I have released a 1.9.2 version in order to fix the bug, but as some of you already posted, is a wp2.7 RSS cache bug maybe combined with a limit from twitter.com

    I’m working on it…

    I’ve had the same problem as mentioned: after updating WP to 2.7, Twitter for WordPress (1.9.2) stopped working, even blocking the showing up of widgets in the admin panel.
    With some trial and error I managed to get it working again. Don’t really understand what I did, but here is the piece of code that seems to do the trick:

    define(‘MAGPIE_CACHE_AGE’, 240);
    // define(‘MAGPIE_CACHE_ON’, false); //2.7 Cache Bug
    define(‘MAGPIE_INPUT_ENCODING’, ‘UTF-8’);

    works like a charm…

    The plugin update seems to fix the issue for me for WP 2.7
