[resolved] Twitter Tools 1.6 - Digest (weekly/daily) (39 posts)

    Good day all.

    I upgraded to the new version of Twitter Tools recently - the betas and then the final release. In it I saw that the digest portion of the plug in appeared to be resolved so I left my weekly digest setting alone and checked back a few days later.

    Unfortunately nothing had posted. With each new version I tested the weekly digest by changing the day/time to the next day at 6:40 am. Nothing has posted.

      I have:

    • verified that the .php file is in the correct location.
    • updated the Twitter Tools settings.
    • manually 'updated tweets'
    • turned off, updated, and then turned on the weekly digest and updated again

    It feels like I've at the error so much but I can't see it because I've looked at it so much. Any suggestions on how to resolve this? Thanks.

    I've got the same problem. Trying to do the daily digest. I've tried prety much the same things.

    Platform: Linux
    WP: 2.7.1
    TT: 2.6

    Sorry you're still seeing problems with these features. They work great in our testing, so whatever you're seeing is probably different than what we've been able to test.

    We'd be happy to try to debug this on your server if you like, but would ask that this be done at our normal consulting rates. Get in touch if you'd like to pursue this route.

    Thanks Alex. Sorry to hear you can't get it working either ITJuggler.

    Are there any ideas out there to make this work?

    For those that have it working would you be willing to post your TT settings here to compare?

    Yep, was pleased that the new release came out so I set my weekly digest and nothing came out either.

    Sorry Alex but I'm not going to pay a consulting fee to have it fixed, I guess we'll just have to wait disappointed until the next release.

    Am currently copying and pasting a weekly digest to my site instead, which is stupid.

    Platform: Linux
    WP: 2.7.1
    TT: 1.6

    Unfortunately we cannot test for all server configurations and potential plugin conflicts. We work very hard to release high quality (free) plugins; if anyone does want us to debug an issue for them, we are happy to do so as outlined above.

    Ok, been hunting down another plugin issue and hadn't had a chance to get back to this..

    Error_log in the /wp-content/plugins/twitter-tools dir has..
    [02-Mar-2009 13:13:30] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function load_plugin_textdomain() in /home/oll49675/itjuggler/wp-content/plugins/twitter-tools/twitter-tools.php on line 30

    I've hunted around in a couple of other plugins, and CFORMS sets up load_plugin_textdomain thusly ..
    add_action('init', create_function('', 'load_plugin_textdomain(\'cforms\');') );

    and SEO Tools calls it like..
    function init() {
    if (function_exists('load_plugin_textdomain')) {
    load_plugin_textdomain('all_in_one_seo_pack', 'wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack');

    Trying some hacking on the code.. will report back shortly.

    Thanks for the update ITJuggler.

    Disabeling "All in one seo pack" did not seem to fix it...

  11. garyploski
    Posted 6 years ago #

    Thought it might benefit the discussion based on the idea that another plugin might be causing the issue. Here is a list of the plugins I have active:

    Akismet 2.2.3
    All in One SEO Pack 1.4.7
    Contact Form 7 1.9.3
    Flickr Photo Album 1.1
    Google XML Sitemaps 3.1.2
    Open Flash Chart Core 0.4
    Raz-Captcha 1.0
    Search Meter 2.5
    ShareThis 2.3
    StatCounter 0.1
    Twitter Tools 1.6
    Ultimate Google Analytics 1.6.0
    Wordbook 0.14.3
    WordPress.com Stats 1.3.7
    WordPress Database Backup 2.2.2
    WPG2 3.0.7
    WP Security Scan 2.3
    Year End Stats 0.4

  12. sjefen6
    Posted 6 years ago #

    Akismet 2.2.3
    Google Analyticator 2.40
    Google XML Sitemaps 3.1.2
    One Click Plugin Updater 2.4.4
    Ozh' Admin Drop Down Menu
    Smart Youtube 2.8.1
    Twitter Tools 1.6
    WoW Armory 2.4
    WP-Print 2.40
    WPtouch iPhone Theme 1.7.5
    (Disabeled atm) All in One SEO Pack 1.4.7
    (Disabeled) podPress 8.8.1

    But can addons create interference? Isn't that bad plugin architecture? It would seem logical that wordpress did something to secure that plugins does not interfere with each other.

    And my server info:

    Operating system Linux
    Linux kernel version 2.6.27-grsec
    Apache version 2.2.11 (Unix)
    Perl version 5.8.8
    PHP version 5.2.8
    MySQL version 5.0.67-community-log
    Path to Perl /usr/bin/perl
    Path to sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail

    It looks like disabeling All in One SEO Pack did fix the issue for me. However, it can also be (most likely not) becouse I flushed the settings and reinstalled tt (I removed all aktt_* enteries in the option database, and dropped the tweets database table (wich had all my tweets)).

    I think tt is having issues posting the Digest's. Lets hope ak will test run it with All in One SEO Pack enabeled, and fix this issue. And I have a suggestion for a future; make tt able to compare its database of tweets, with the Digests it is supposed to be making. And make it awalable on demand (button in the config page).

    There is a tweet in the database with the date 13. January 09.
    Get the titeles that are supposed to go with this tweet (commonly: Twitter Updates for 2009-01-13)
    Search for posts with that exact title
    if match, check next tweet in the database
    else try to create digest, if error, display error and check next tweet

    I will look in to modefying the plugin, but I am no expert, and I hope ak or a person with plugin experience will look into it.

    I wish I had your luck sjefen6.

    I tried the following:

      deleted tt within wp
      deleted wp_ak_twitter from the db via phpmyadmin
      deleted aktt_ setting references from the db via phpmyadmin
      installed and activated tt 1.6 from within wp
      verified wp_ak_twitter was re-inserted into db via phpmyadmin
      saw 0 records in wp_ak_twitter via phpmyadmin
      configured tt within wp
      set weekly to a few minutes from present time
      clicked update tweets and reset tweet checking within wp
      verified 20 records were imported into the db via phpmyadmin
      neither daily or weekly digest posted

    Now, only 20 tweets are in the db. I've sat longer than 10 minutes and have not seen any additional tweets added to the db.

    One thing I learned testing tonight was that my server is now one hour off which is likely to to DST.

  16. garyploski
    Posted 6 years ago #

    ...I looked at my Facebook profile and saw that a new blog had posted on my site this morning. That's right, it worked. The weekly digest posted sometime this morning.

    It appears that a flush of TT settings, etc. from the db did work.

  17. TheITJuggler
    Posted 6 years ago #

    ok, so how do you flush the tt settings?

    I don't have phpymadmin access, but I do have a DB plugin that allows me to update, delete and insert stuff.

  18. garyploski
    Posted 6 years ago #

    Hmm. I do not know itjuggler.

    As I went through the process I wished that there was a clean remove/uninstall of the plugin. Sure, the files are easy to delete but removing the data from the db was not.

    Does anyone else know how to completely uninstall TT without phpmyadmin? It'd be great if the plugin provided that option considering how much it adds to the db.

  19. garyploski
    Posted 6 years ago #

    Additional note - After nearly 24 hours, my older tweets have not imported into the db.

    I still want to reenable AIO SEO, but I have not been brave enough. Does anyone have any luck with it?

    On a sidenote; When I was deleting the settings for TT did I notice that my twitter password was stored in the clear. That is not good practice! But I guess we will have to live with it intill twitter lets us use API key's.

  21. garyploski
    Posted 6 years ago #

    sjefen6... I have SEO enabled and everything is working fine (still). My Sunday weekly digest posted this AM.

  22. sjefen6
    Posted 6 years ago #

    Success! I reenabeled AIO SEO and still the digests are coming inn! The fix seems to be flushing the settings from aktt and reinstall it. Dont know what wp.com users and other that does not have db access can do.

    I am pretty sure I just solved my problem. "akk_doing_digest" is set to "1", where i suspect the program left it after my %^@# provider killed the process.

  24. garyploski
    Posted 6 years ago #

    wfzimmerman, I think you nailed the problem. Here are two examples from my db backups.

    March 13th...
    INSERT INTO wp_options VALUES (2442, 0, 'aktt_doing_digest_post', '0', 'yes');

    February 27th...
    INSERT INTO wp_options VALUES (1597, 0, 'aktt_doing_digest_post', '1', 'yes');

    I had left the weekly digest enabled hoping that one day it would fix itself. I do see a 0 vs a 1. Would that have solved the problem?

    For those out there experiencing troubles with the weekly digest, check this setting and please let us know if this solution fixed the problem.

    Thanks wfzimmerman.

    I have been using twitter tools since sometime and hav started facing a strange problem.

    not only does the plugin skip some of the daily digests on certain random dates, it posts duplicate ones on certain days. I cant figure out what's wrong. My twitter lifestreaming on my blog is not working :|. any support would be appreciated.

  26. zerofee.org

    Same problems here - ground to a halt a couple of weeks back and have had no success in getting the daily or weekly digests started again. Have tried flushing the TT stuff from the DB, resetting, reinstalling, disabling other plug-ins etc... to no avail.

    @wfzimmerman @garyploski - what you were investigating sounded positive - did you both resolve this problem permanently and, if you did, would you be able to post a clear step-by-step solution for us all here please? Your posts above point to a few different steps, but it's not quite clear (at least to me) what exactly you did to sort it out.

    If possible, much appreciated!

    I only installed this plugin to get the weekly compliation of tweets posted as a blog post.

    I can't get it to work either. I am running WP 2.7 with the following plugins:

    Google Analytics
    Google XML Sitemaps
    Image Caption
    Lightbox 2
    MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer
    My Link Order
    Twitter for WordPress
    Widget Logic
    Worpress,com stats
    Wordpress Database backup
    WP Contact Form III
    WP Security
    YouTube Brackets

    I suggest it might just be easier to copy and paste them in manually once a week.

    #1 Select, copy paste, post: All up that process would take a minute, perhaps less.


    #2 Troubleshooting this plugin: I could waste several hours as others have with no promise it will work.

    I am having the same problem. The plugin does not publish the digest posts.

    I am running WP 2.8 with the following plugins:

    Broken Link Checker
    Clicky Web Analytics
    Flickr Photo Album
    Maintenance Mode
    MTR Podcast Recorder
    NextGEN Gallery
    Post-Plugin Library
    Post Levels

    Same problems here, it just stopped all of a sudden to give out the weekly digest. I don't know if the update of wordpress has anything to do with it. I deinstalled tt and deleted everything from the database. (shouldn't there be a routine for this in the plugin?) I will reinstall twitter tools again to see what happens. But before that I try to build in the routine to remove the database entries at deinstallation.
