Using Twitter Cards

Recommended Posts


Can anyone help me get twitter cards set up, or point me in  the right direction? I've seen a lot of how to's floating around, but none are specific to the DMS user, so I'm running into the problems because whereas the benefit to the DMS is the lack of needing to code really, but all the directive I have on installing it involves adding code someplace, and I'm not sure how to do this. I've set up my jetpack as described below, and I even have JM twitter card plug in--which I really thought was solving the problem. No matter what though, when ever I try to link or post t twitter is just posts a link as it always has. No picture of anything. Any advice on what to do would be great!

DMS has been designed to allow you to create a website without the need for code. However, to integrate Twitter cards, will require custom code as this isn't a feature of DMS, but that of Twitter.

The instructions on that page tell you how to implement cards via custom code or via the JetPack. Therefore, can you provide a link to what you're currently encountering on twitter when you publish a post on WordPress, as I am not entirely sure what your problem is or you're confusing what you're implementing?

What do you expect when you click publish from your posts ? As it is my understand that the JetPack method simply creates a tweet when you publish a post on WordPress.

Also, this issue in my opinion is an issue with either your confusion on what these plugins are implementing or you have not followed the instructions correctly. Either way, this isn't an issue with DMS, but with the plugin(s) you're using and I think the best course of action is for you to contact either Twitter support or JetPack support. As DMS has no relation to this implementation, as the issue is either with the plugins themselves or the Wordpress post system.

      Hi there!
      I'd love to have some social media buttons in my navbar like my online-shop has!
      Can someone explain me how to create them? I tried a lot but don't know how to realize them...

      In the social links Twitter shows 404 error in the API. Example:
      "GET http://urls.api.twitter.com/1/urls/count.json?url=http://www.webbdo.se/cybe…onday/&callback=jQuery1113017799108568578959_1449307004771&_=1449307004772 "
      This on all posts that have the "social links" and Twitter included.
      See example: http://www.webbdo.se/cyber-monday/
      How can it be fixed?

      Hi All
      I am trying to implement a twitter widget using the twitter code in a morefoot section on www.magva.com
      It should be appearing in the middle widget but as you will see, it appears during the loading and then disappears again.
      Anyone any ideas on why this might be?
      The only custom CSS I have for the morefoot section is:
      /* this changes the colour's in the morefoot and the font-size */ #morefoot { background-color: #404040; } #morefoot .widget { color: #ffffff; } #morefoot .widget-title { color: #ffffff; font-size: 92%; }  This is the code that I am getting from the twitter site:

      Hi all,
      I'm trying to re-create the PageLines Twitter feed (seeing that it is broken since Twitter's recent API changes). I signed up to Twitter's embedded timelines and so I am looking to add that Twitter widget to a sidebar that is similar-looking to PageLines' Twitter integration. Anyone have any idea on how to do this? I've been able to add the widget to the Morefoot Left (or Middle or Right) section but it gets added to the top of the page, under the header, and only in a single-of-three-columns format.
      Any help would be appreciated and I think this might help MANY others...
