Twitter Bar Section Not Updating / Not Showing Feed

Recommended Posts

telkins

Hello. The site I am currently building, www.dev.chatham.bladv.com is using the Twitter Bar Section found in the Pagelines Store. (The section is at the bottom of each page)

For the most part, I cannot get the section to display tweets. If I remove the section and add it back in, it will sometimes work.

However, when the section displays a tweet, it refused to update. It will continually show the same tweet until I remove the section and add it back in.

I have used this section on another site I am building, www.dev.rmia.bladv.com and it works just fine.

Does anyone have ANY ideas why this isn't working? I have tried turning off all WP plugins and it still doesn't work correctly. Also, I have tried using the standard Pagelines twitter feed and it doesn't seem to work correctly either.

Thanks so much.

Did you include your Twitter account properly in Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Website Setup under "Twitter Integration"?

Do you have a Twitter account? Are there tweets posted there?

It only updates every 900s and only if your server isnt blocked from the twitter api, your server has nearly 300 different sites including some which have 'questionable' content, twitter may have blocked the IP.

@Rob, yes I have the site options configured for the correct Twitter feed but it is still not updating.

@Simon, any ideas as to how I might fix this? The weird thing is that I have this same Twitter Profile section running on another website and it's working fine.

Anything I can do to FORCE it to update?

Maybe thats the problem then there are nearly 300 other domains on that server, which pretty much guarantees twitter will rate limit requests.

Do I need to contact Twitter and ask if our server was blocked? Is there any other way?

Its very unlikely its blocks, as one of the sites works, probably its rate limited. Contacting them may help, but they will just say you have 300+ websites all on the same IP.

You may need get in touch with Twitter support although I'm not certain what they can do on their end.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Actually, it would appear that both sites have stopped updating Twitter feeds. I will contact Twitter to see if my IP has been blocked. Is there a better way of embedding a Twitter feed in a Pagelines site, or are the Twitter plugins the best way to accomplish this?

Well twitter do provide a javascript snippet that you could insert into a text widget, how it looks is anybodys guess. Yes there are quite a few plugins too.

The Twitter java script doesn't work either. I am having the same problem!

The twitter javascript provided by twitter will work, it runs clientside in your browser.

      Hello Pagelines,   I no longer use pagelines services. I have deactivated the automatic annual payment. But it already charged to my credit card. Since I cancelled my contract before the end, Can I request to refund?

      Hello,
      I am wanting to know what the status of the Pagelines Platform.
      I have noticed that there has been absolutely no updates on Platform 5 for over 8 months.
      Please tell me you haven't gone off on another tangent and going to build the next great solution
      and then leave all of us to have to completely rebuild our sites like we did for
      Pagelines, then DMS, then Pagelines Platform.
      I like what you build, but what you need to do is build one product and then make it better, rather than 
      abandoning it and building something else.
      You haven't done anything for so long that even WordPress is providing a warning.
      "Warning: This plugin has not been tested with your current version of WordPress."
      So what is the Status. I mean if I am going to pay a monthly fee for a product, I don't want to pay for one
      that is no longer being supported. You have a great product, I'm not bashing it, I'm just wondering what 
      your next move is because I have business decisions to make for myself, and whether of not this is something
      I should stick with.

      Please be kind enough to respond.

      Thank You,
      Anthony
