    Hi nowhereman,

    Once you install the plugin, go to the Options > Twitter LiveBlog page to set up Twitter username/password and a few other simple settings. The settings are explained in the Configuration page (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/twitter-liveblog/other_notes/). In the Options page, you can set how often you want WordPress to check Twitter for updates. I set mine to 1 minute during liveblogging and to 5 minutes when looking for new posts. You must save your options before the plugin will work.

    Instructions on how to start and stop posts are on the FAQ page (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/twitter-liveblog/faq/).

    Basically, a Twitter update with "//NLB//" in it will create a new post on WordPress. You can add the title of the post by adding it to your "//NLB//" tweet. For example, send the tweet "//NLB// Liveblogging Post" to create a post with title "Liveblogging Post".

    An Twitter updates you send after the "//NLB//" update will be picked up by WordPress and added as a new line in your post (with a timestamp).

    To end your liveblogging session, send a "//ELB//" tweet. This will tell WordPress that you are done with your liveblogging post. Any subsequent tweet will be ignored by WordPress. I recommend you wait at least a minute or so after sending your last tweet before sending the "//ELB//" tweet.

    For an example of a liveblogging post, go to WindowsObserver.com: http://www.windowsobserver.com/2009/03/29/live-blogging-test/ . You can also read a review there of this plugin.

    Let me know if this helps or if you have any other questions.

    Hi nowhereman, sorry, I misunderstood your question.

    Right now, to have all Twitter posts go to a separate page, you would have to make a change in the database (options table) where I store the post id of the current liveblog post (by replacing the existing value with the post id of the page). Its a hack, but it will work and redirect all your posts to the page you want. I dont recommend it unless you want to play around directly in the database.

    Now that I know what you want to do, I'll see if I can incorporate it into a future version.

    I'm interested in using this module. Thanks for creating and sharing it.
    I'm using the p2 theme and am getting this error that essentialy disables the site when I activate the module:
    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Services_JSON in
    on line 116

    If I go to that file I see this:
    class Services_JSON
    * constructs a new JSON instance

    ...Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    antikx, I'm a bit puzzled. The Services_JSON class in the LiveBlog plugin is wrapped in

    if (!class_exists('Services_JSON'))


    so it shouldnt be getting redeclared, at least not by the LiveBlog plugin. I run Twitter Tools on my blog which also uses the Services_JSON class with no problems.

    Can you send me a link to download the P2 theme. I'd like to test it.

    I don't know if you have resolved this or not; I found this thread while searching for a way to create a separate page for Tweets.

    #10 on this site describes a way to do this. I haven't tried it yet, but hopefully it works out! :)
