    Just a feature request - would you consider adding the option in the shortcode/widget to display the image of the twitter user for whom the feed is pulling?

    The official formats should already do that in each tweet - e.g. via [rotatingtweets screen_name='twitter' official_format='1']

    Or do you want a permanent display of just the owner?

    I was referring to the latter.

    Do you have any views on how you would want it to look?

    Using shortcode I can't get the twitter icons to show, here's my shortcode:

    do_shortcode('[rotatingtweets screen_name="xxxxxx" exclude_replies="true" tweet_count="3" official_format="true" no_rotate="1"]');

    Using the widget in the sidebar as a test works fine, am I missing something?

    Thanks.

    I was wrapping the attribute value in quotes and using a value of 'true', that's apparently a no-no. What worked is:

    official_format=1

    True. Official format looks for a numerical value.

    Many thanks for sorting that.
