Separating the sidebar tweets in twitter-tools

  • Hello WordPress World,

    I have installed a plugin from Alex King called
    Twitter-Tools and it works great. I need help in
    creating a separation between the sidebar tweets.

    Here is a short video showing what I mean:

    I know a little about php but not enough to scan
    a couple thousand lines of code to find a place
    to insert a line break or create separate fields
    that each tweet can set (roost) in.

    All help will of course be greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,
    Steve Dougherty

  • Wow! A screencast for a feature request! That’s impressive! 🙂

    I was looking for a way to do the same thing (apply some styling to the tweets) and ended up going into the twitter-tools.php file and adding span classes around the tweet, the “in reply to,” and the time. These can then be styled with CSS.

    But just adding some space between the tweets isn’t that hard. All you need to do is add something like the following to your css stylesheet:

    div.aktt_tweets li { padding-bottom: 10px; }

    That should do the trick.

    I’m even less familiar with php. I completely understand what you’re saying to do, the problem is that I’m not php-literate enough to know where to put the span tags in the twitter-tools.php file. I’ve been through it a dozen times!

    So, if you could tell me where in the file to put the span tags, that would be really helpful.
