Support » Plugin: Simple Twitter Tweets » Show Twitter Screen Name doesnt work

  • Resolved nataliette



    I checked “Show Twitter Screen Name” but I don’t see the username anywhere. Any ideas about this?

    Also, I noticed a bug that appears randomly. Sometimes when I click the time, it just brings me to instead of Works fine when I change the twitter username to another one and back to my own one.

    Hi Nataliette,

    Please upgrade to v1.3.1 check your widget settings. Check the correct username is input (without the @ symbol), check you have the options selected as you want for the Twitter button and click save.

    Detailed here too – with some screenshots

    All the best

    Hi! Thanks for your reply.
    I have the latest version 1.3.1. My username is simply the username without the @ symbol. When I click save, only my tweet shows without username, like this:

    I had spaghetti for lunch today
    3h ago

    instead of:

    @my_username: I had spaghetti for lunch today
    3h ago

    Thank you in advance!

    Oh also, just wondering if it would be possible to link the timestamp to the exact tweet’s page rather than my twitter userpage.

    Sorry for the consequent postings.

    I have noticed that the timestamp is inaccurate. When I posted a tweet just now, it says it was posted 8hours ago. FYI my current timezone is GMT+8, perhaps you could highlight having consistent timezone as WordPress settings, thank you.

    Hi nataliette

    1st post: most users are just using Tweets for display – their own promo etc. so not relevant for this plugin to show you tweeted your own tweets 😉

    2nd post: in relation to point one, most users want to promote their feeds, their tweets etc. so the date/time link lining to their timeline is more valuable than the tweet itself which is available from the timeline you see when you click the link.

    3rd post: We noticed this too and are looking into it. Thx for all your feedback – good to know how your using it etc.

    Hope the plugin serves you well.
