Twitter Widget Pro 1.2.2 Released!

I just uploaded version 1.2.2 of my WordPress Twitter Widget Pro plugin. Since twitter has slowed down, a lot of people (especially on slower servers) have been getting the “Could not connect to Twitter” message when twitter was slow but not down. I’ve added a setting on each widget to specify the number of seconds to wait for Twitter. It still defaults to 2 seconds, but you may have to bump it up. Just remember that when twitter IS down, it will try for that full amount of time to reach them BEFORE your page loads, so don’t set it too high!

Please discuss this plugin on the WordPress Twitter Widget post.

    Ehhh Thanks for the plugin… :) FYI: Are U aware off that the buttom link links to twitme? and not back here?

  2. Hi Guys – love the widget, but it does not work under WP 2.7. It will parse the feed for a minute or two, then loose it for hours. It will then repeat this cycle again. Please help! Thanks!

  3. This site is on WordPress 2.7 and uses the widget. During heavy loads it'll lose connection, probably due to a limit Twitter has enforced. An average load here is 500-600 pageviews/day, and getting twice that usually doesn't affect it unless they all come at once. However, if you get many more than that you'll probably want to set up some kind of caching for WordPress (consider WP-Super-Cache).

    I had to setup wp super cache on my blog to accomodate the traffic levels. Other than that, the plugin works great, thank you.

  8. I don't know what I'd do without you guys, your plugins are the best.
