Support » Plugin: Simple Twitter Feed » Sensible cache time

  • Resolved bentonboomslang



    Thanks for you plugin it works well.

    I’m not entirely sure what the cache time refers to. What do you recommend as a sensible cache time for a twitter feed that is updated say, every hour? I’m presuming about 1800 would be sensible?

    Also as a feature request I would love the option to make the title of the widget a link to the account’s Twitter page.

    Hey ben! 1800 would refresh every half hour. This works for most people but some people need to refresh much more often than that and set their cache time to 60 so that it’s updated every minute. This would still keep you unter the rate limit for twitter’s API since you’re allowed 150 requests per hour.

    As for your feature request, this is realdy possible! Simply put the Twitter accounts handle in the title with the “@” symbol before it, like so: @crowdersoup. This would automatically make “CrowderSoup” a link to the twitter accounts home page.

    Great to know. Thanks very much.
