Using version 2.3.3, Just says “No Tweets Available” even when there are.
Usually this means that your server can’t connect to the Twitter servers. Likely because you’re on a shared server and the IP has been limited or blocked. Do any other twitter widgets like Wickett Twitter Widget work?
I fixed the problem in the code. The twitter api feed is not secure, you use https:// , it should be http://
According to twitter’s website, the api feed url is:
Hope this helps you. Twitter Widget Pro is working great for me now 😀
If you look at their example requests in their documentation they use this:
Not sure what to tell you, other than that if you change it to http:// it works flawlessly and if it is https:// the widget reads “No Tweets Available”
FWIW, I’d been wrestling with the same problem for the past couple days. I just edited the code as Ryan suggested, and now my Twitter Widget Pro is working too…
we had the same problem, and changing from https:// to http:// worked for us too – thanks!
no problem, that is definitely the issue. It works on all the servers I’ve tried when this fix is applied.
Widget shows No Tweets Available. Using the most recent release and other Twitter feeds work so it’s not my hosting company blocking Twitter. I’m on a dedicated IP anyway. I switched the https to http as suggested above and it appears to be working.
I’m worried that the real issue is not http vs https. I think that all the change is doing is changing the hash so that whatever is stuck in the database is being ignored. You could try running this query to clear out the stored data and see if that helps:
DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name LIKE '_transient_%twp_%' || option_name LIKE '_transient_%tlc_%'
(if you changed your table prefix, make sure that wp_options is whatever your options table is)
You may want to run
SELECT * FROM wp_options WHERE option_name LIKE '_transient_%twp_%' || option_name LIKE '_transient_%tlc_%'first to take a look at what you’re deleting.
More feedback about this. I’ve changed my URL to http and is working. I think if you are requesting tweets from a HTTPS page the https url works, but if you are requesting them from a HTTP page it doesn’t work.
I have double checked the SELECT you recommend, and there are no records in the XX_options table with that condition, so I think this is not the problem…
Hope it helps.
I can also confirm that the widget is working fine again after changing to http instead of https
Just modify “https” to “http” in line 186 within wp-twitter-widget.php
Just to say that even in my case, switching from https to http solved the issue.
Probably a stupid question but…how do I get to the code in order to edit it?
