Twitter widget and Frog
Has anyone got a currently working Twitter widget in Frog? Each one I've tried from the store doesn't work and my own code stopped working when Twitter updated their security. Again!
Our staff seem to love Twitter and almost every department has their own account and they all want their feed on their department home pages.
You after a widget that users can chuck on and use their own twitter? or you after one that sits on a site and shows your Schools twitter account feed?
I need a feed widget, ideally just showing the latest post for a single twitter account; for example CLV_Sport or CLV_Art
On twitter you should be able to get the html code for it, this will create a widget - we had one on our main website but I recently removed it.
There should be a section on twitter when you are signed in to give you the option on creating a twitter feed box, you can also customize the colour etc. Chuck in the HTML block in a page and copy and paste the code - voila all done.
You should be able to create a widget for this, a simple page with the html block saved in the widget section should do the trick. Never tried it though on the basis of users adding it.
Yeah, i'd already tried that. For some reason the code doesn't render on either our intranet or internet site. Technically, i haven't tried it on Frog yet, but wasn't holding out much hope.
Strange, not sure then all I know is the code worked for us in a HTML brick and chucked on our main website.
We use the code from the twitter api, and put it in a HTML brick. works fine for us!

Thanks but I get the same issue with your code. I'm starting to think we might have a cross domain scripting issue, which is preventing any of the solutions from working. Hmmmm
The way we have done this was to get the code from twitter for thr feed. put the code in a HTML editor. We used Alleycode (Free Source) save the file has a html file. Then you simple upload to your folder in frog. Copy the path to clipboard. then go to the page you want the feed on and edit page...go to Media...embed website and paste the path in the box.
