Tweetstream (twitter plugin) Beta testers needed!
I created a plugin that syncs twitter with users activity feeds.
The plugin in ready to be released but i need some beta testers to see if the plugin works well.
Want to help test this plugin? PM me!
p.s. plugin is for buddypress 1.2
Yes, its not even added to the menu. I can only see the 2 default ones over there
When I added those,I did get a notice of saving them but the fields were empty at that point. I thought you might have saved it in database and is not showing the current value in fields.
Let me fill those again.
I saved them again and I again got the notice but I think its not saving them at all.
I am using WPMU and you are using WP, if that makes any difference to your code
@ashfame, tnxs for the info will look into the difference between WP and WPMU
@blackphantom – I’ve updated my Twitter status almost 2 hours ago and it hasn’t synced yet with the plugin. Directly posting from the bp to twitter works 100%. I first had your plugin v 1.0 installed, removed it and added version 1.1. that’s when the syncing stopped.
@anton did you setup tweetstream in wp-admin ? it got its own settings page from 1.1.
yes I did. I’ve updated the two options on the admin and thats for the consumer and secret key
Same problem here can we tinker with the time instead of one hour? Only in the beginning as a site grows then it should be changed to hourly, its just to test if it works properely
@Anton, oops… filtering bug fixed now
@bnt76, well every account got rate-limits of max 150 per hour. I dont want to make a fight with twitter about it will see i i can think of something to this problem.
!!! UPDATE !!!
Tweetstream v 1.1.1 download url:
* Quotes to twitter fix
* WMPU support fix
* Filter bug fix
Could the inclusion of the URL appended to the end of the tweet be optional? That way users can use tweetstream as a status updater first and foremost and not necessarily as a way to drive traffic back to the site. It will also allow for more characters in the tweet.
The via app link will already serve as a path back to the site.
Just a thought!
@blackphantom Just installed will play with it. I understand the rate calls to twitter etc just for testing purposes to make sure everything is working as it should.
@blackphantom just did some test posts direct from activity stream to twitter and actually on twitter itself, will post how long it takes and if there are any problems.
GREAT GREAT GREAT Plugin – was waiting for something like this. Now I am waiting for the first tweets to appear
Some Feature-Requests that are important to me:
1. An option to choose, if I want synching both-ways, or just one way BP->Twitter // Twitter->BP (or would that be doable with just choosing read-permission in the twitter-api?)
2. Translatable: I would need to localize it. Could you add support for that and a .pot-file?
Ps: After authorizing the redirect showed a blank-page (with the token-adress) – should that be?
Ps2: Really excited!
@MichaelBerra Tnxs for your feedback!
Translation will come in next version, need to find out how to create a darn .pot file.
Option for sync from twitter to bp will be there in the next release (to turn it on/off)
There i no need to create an option to turn off bp to twitter because there is an checkbox that does that already.
What did I do wrong, when I don’t see that checkbox? I only see the sentence underneath the Update-Field “Want to tweet this message to? Check your tweetstream settings.”
Could that have something to do with the blank-screen I mentioned after authorizing?
Ps: The settings-page messes-up the layout. You don’t see it well in the default theme, but the widgets (whole sidebar?) are gone…
It appears you can access another users tweetstream settings by altering the URL
And you could auth with your own account. No idea why anyone would want to do that, but …..
Also, the tweetstream settings page is returning a 404 server response though the page still loads for me in FF.
This is causing an issue with one of my users, his ISP intercepts 404’s I think and is redirecting him to Yahoo (or it’s a yahoo toolbar thing).
Edit: I also wanted to say thanks for developing this plugin!
thanks blackphantom. I’ve installed the latest plugin 1.1.1. Will it take an hour now before I see the results?
Edit: It’s working. Thanks again
@MichaelBerra, hmm strange, when you click that link you will get to the settings page.
From there you need to authorize on twitter. when back from twitter you should be back at the settings page.
Now you wil see a checkbox instead a text with a link.
Tip: if you click to authorize at twitter you should see a code in de adressbar (token), if not then something went wrong in the tweetstream settings (wp-admin)
You can always p.m. me for more info.
I got the blank screen because I put www in the callback url. dont include www just http://ur.com
@Modemlooper, good one indead need to update the readme
It’s now working… it was not the www, but I had BP installed in a subblog, and took the root as callback url – now it’s working
By the way: Now I see the checkbox, but because only a few people are using twitter here I would like to hide the twitter-settings-message. Would that be possible?
As soon as you give out the .pot file, I will translate it into german (found out it’s quite easy
PS: The sidebar-issue on the settingspage is still there
