Uploaded a new version (1.0.1) which should fix that issue :smile:. After uploading the new files, run the task "Recache Twitter Timeline" under ACP > System > System > System Scheduler

The demo is just an example of how it can be skinned if you wish to customize. By default I don't provide any other looks, but if you would like options let me know and I would be happy to provide them

Its empty. :)

I notice if I run the task manually I get a driver error and this in sql_error_latest.cgi.

mySQL query error: SELECT block_name,block_config FROM ibf_ccs_blocks WHERE block_type='plugin'

Just installed it, it works a dream :)

Also discovered something - in case it's of use to others who use a skin other than the default one. You need to upload the "public > style images > master > twitter" folder to the style images folder for your skin, or the images for Twitter and the new "Reply, retweet & favourite" won't show.

Unfortunately without having access to your setup that type of error is fairly hard to diagnose. I've uploaded a small fix for error reporting, but it likely won't help in this case.

Here's what I'd suggest to start:

-Check the screen name to make sure it has been spelled correctly. It should be the name that comes after the @ sign (thanks Millipede :smile:)

-Are you using the consumer keys/secrets for Twitter login? If not make sure the setting "Use 'Twitter Connect' details" is set to "No"

Try this and see if it is of any help :smile:

Typically what that error would mean is that nothing parseable was returned from Twitter... :unsure:

If you're comfortable giving limited FTP/ACP then I can take a look directly - which is quicker. If not, then I can PM you a debug version which will dump the requests to locate the problem.

Let me know which is best for you :smile:
