  • 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.

    Thanks,

    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.

    Hello,
    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
    /home/path/to/wordpress/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/JSON.php
    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.

    @nowhereman77:

    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! 🙂
