    Tweets not coming through

    Used this on many of my umbraco sites. The tweets are no longer coming through on any of my sites. Is something broke or have twitter done something?

    Same here! uTwit could be a nice alternative, but for a quick fix I prefer to update the code (TwitterStatus.xslt)
    Does anyone know the solution? :-)

    It's not possible, you need authentication with Twitter because they stopped v1.0 of their API.

    uTwit works with v1.1 of the Twitter API.

    Try http://our.umbraco.org/projects/website-utilities/utweets . It works with the new Twitter api and contains some ready to use razor scripts. We created it because our sites also had problems with the new api.

    Hi Davy, how exactly do we integrate your plugin? I've put all the authorization codes and tokens in the dictionary. How do I tell your plugin to go to a specific twitter feed? With the old api I just put the username of the twitter account into the plugin I was using and it just worked.

     

    Thanks,

    Davy, I have the same question as Dorza. We add twitter feeds to all of our client's sites. Somehow we need the ability to specify the feed/user to show. Thoughts? Also we still have several clients running 4.0.x. Will your package work with 4,0,x? Thanks!

    I got this working this afternoon. You will need access to your client's twitter accounts or they need to relay information to you...

    1. You or your clients need to login to twitter and go to dev.twitter.com.
    2. On the top right the logo of the twitter account is displayed, hover over it and a menu appears, click "My Applications"
    3. Click "Create New Application"
    4. Fill out all the required fields as is appropriate and click the create button at the bottom
    5. Then you will be presented with your application specific details.
    6. Copy the Consumer key and Consumer secret keys and paste them into the relevant dictionary items under the Settings panel of umbraco
    7. Go back to the dev.twitter.com page and click the button at the bottom of the page to generate your tokens. Paste these into the relevant areas as above.
    8. From this point forward my twitter feeds started working once I loaded them into my template.

    Sorry for the late reply. It's indeed like Dorza already explained (thanks for that btw!) , you need the Twitter consumer keys and secrets from each of your clients. I'll try to update our documentation.

    @dorza: Glad you got it working. It's our first package. I'm curious, on which sites are you using it? It's always nice to see how other people are integrating it.

     

    regards,

    Davy
