[Resolved] Updated version of Rotating Tweets that uses the Twitter v 1.1 API

    Hi all,

    I’ve just updated Rotating Tweets to start using version 1.1 of the Twitter API.

    This is because Twitter are switching off the old version 1.0 of the API at some point in March – at which point older versions of Rotating Tweets will stop updating.

    If you have any questions or want to discuss any aspect of the new version of the plug-in, please post comments to this post.

  • As soon as I click save after adding all the api details (Twitter API Consumer Key etc) there is a 500 error. I then click on reload page and it goes to wordpress settings page and has not saved the key input.

    Ah. That doesn’t sound good.

    I’ve uploaded a new development version. Does that fix the problem?

    Martin

    Thanks for a great plugin… I am having issues with the new changes. I tried your development version and the error messages went away, however I still get the error:

    Problem retrieving data from Twitter
    Please check the Twitter name used in the settings.

    If you look at the HTML source for the page with Rotating Tweets on it, there should be a message immediately after the opening div (which is something like <div class='rotatingtweets' id='rotatingtweets_4000_scrollUp_512dbbb038a54'>).

    What does it say?

    I’m having similar issues once I enter the values in the following fields:

    Twitter API Access Token
    Twitter API Access Token Secret

    Let me know what I should do.

    Matt,

    Which error are you getting? The 500 error? Or the ‘Problem retrieving data from Twitter’ error?

    Every time I go to save the Setting page with the API Access Token and API Access Token Secret, I get an Unable to Load Page error message. When I reload, I get all the Settings for my entire site. The plug in no longer shows up in my site — despite still being in the footer widgets — so no div is evident.

    Crikey. Can you send me a link to your site? Does any other plug-in do this?

    Is there any extra information on the HTML of the ‘Unable to Load Page’ page?

    What version of WordPress, PHP and MySQL do you have?

    What happens if you set WP_DEBUG to true in the wp_config.php file?

    And does this guide to WordPress errors help?

    And does it happen in other browsers?

    Sure, here’s the link. I’m on the latest rev of WP, PHP, etc.

    The page of all variables that you’re getting is .../wp-admin/options.php which is the form handler for admin pages, but I’ve no idea why WordPress is breaking this way.

    Is there an error listed for rotatingtweets_api_error on that page?

    What happens if you comment out:

    $test = rotatingtweets_call_twitter_API('statuses/user_timeline',NULL,$options);

    (It’s about line 540).

    Have you historically had problems with plug-ins that pull in data from other sites?

    The new development version might address this. Please let me know if it works for you.

    I just updated to the latest version and it worked (before that it didn’t). I think it’s solved now.

    Hi Martin,

    Thanks for your great plugin! I really like it.
    Till today it works fine, then I updated the plugin and now it isn’t working anymore.

    In the widget I get the message ‘Problem retrieving data from Twitter’.

    I understand it has something to do with the Twitter API.
    So I went to Twitter to create an application. I filled in all the Twitter Consumer and Twitter Access Token keys in the plugin preferences but it still doesn’t work.

    I think I did something wrong when I created he Twitter application. To be honest I don’t have any idea what I have to fill in by the application details. Name, description, webiste, access level, request uri? Can you please help me to get your plugin working again.

    Thanks.

    Hi zagerij. Sorry it isn’t working for you.

    When you go to wp-admin/options-general.php?page=rotatingtweets and click ‘Save Changes’ what message do you get at the top of the page?

    Which version were you using before?

    Martin
