We had a twitter widget working in column four of the footer, but this has stopped working suddenly.
We cannot get it working at all and have tried various twitter accounts and also tried to position it in other areas of the website but have had no luck. Is this twitter widget broken or have we done something wrong as it has been working fine up until now?
Thanks ~ JaneOctober 17, 2012 at 10:21 am #392Jane HaseldenGuest
As I am not getting any answers here, I will have to remove the widget and put some code in by hand.
Does Livemesh not answer posts as he has answered others recently?October 17, 2012 at 10:22 am #393Jane HaseldenGuest

Sorry Jane for the delay. I will get this fixed for you latest by this weekend. This is due to change in Twitter API and has affected many themes and scripts in fact. Will work towards getting this fixed as quickly as I can. BTW, I do answer questions here but I find that in spite of the presence of the forum, I receive lot more support requests on my email(unfortunately) and rarely here. Hence I tend to check this less frequently. Thanks and will get back to you.October 22, 2012 at 9:33 pm #404Jeffrey SummersGuest
Then you should tell everyone, like most designers do that utilize support forums like this, that ALL support requests must go through the forum. For various reasons, it’s the only thing that makes sense.October 24, 2012 at 4:31 pm #406
I agree with you 100% that we should try to enforce this. Only challenge in it is that I do not want people share their website link publicly (on which they are raising the support request) or when they have to email their wordpress/cpanel login. Hence email is perhaps inevitable. Let me think over and find out some best practices followed by others. Thanks for your patience.
Have made progress on the twitter widget. It involves changes on 3-4 files and hence will need an theme update to be released. Pls expect that in 4-5 days along with some changes to portfolio pages. Meanwhile, pls utilize this plugin for your needs –

I upgraded to 2.5 but still the Twitter Widget does not work.
I will have to try the link above, but would appreciate if you could let me know if you managed to fix your own Twitter Widget.

Twitter has made it hard for developers to support Twitter widget. Pls use the widget above. If you have issues, let me know and I can help. ThanksDecember 25, 2012 at 3:27 am #445
I have updated the twitter widget to fix the errors. Look for an update to theme next week.
