Twitter widget not working in Bueno theme

  1. Hi there, I am using the free Beuno theme on my blog domhearts.wordpress.com. I've been trying to integrate the twitter widget into the theme but when it comes to entering my username URL (twitter.com/domsh) and I press save, the forward slash disappears, causing a break in the URL and an error on the page. Is this a fault with the theme or the widget?
    Help please!

    The blog I need help with is domhearts.wordpress.com.

  2. Hello there,
    The is your Twitter URL https://twitter.com/domsh Note the "s". Will you please confirm whether or not you are following the guide here? http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/twitter-widget/

  3. Hello timethief, thanks for your reply. I know that is the Twitter URL, the trouble I am having is that once I insert the URL into the Twitter widget, when I press save the forward slash (/) between .com and domsh, disappears leaving - https://twitter.comdomsh - which is an error, no matter what I do, the forward slash continues to disappear. I am following the guide, thanks, but nothing seems to address this problem specifically, which is why I think it may be a fault with the Twitter widget for the Bueno theme

  4. Hi again,
    Thanks for the clarification. I tagged this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond.

  5. I have EXACTLY the same trouble (with Vigilance Theme)
    The slash disappears so Twitter says that " twitter.commcc43_ " doesn't exist.
    All was working well before, but unfortunately I had to insert again the widget and it prooves to be impossible
    my blog is
    http://mcc43.wordpress.com/
    Please see what appears and click to see Twitter's answer.
    Heeeelp :) Thanks

  6. I've been having the same problem. I actually posted to this forum a week ago about it but the problem has yet to be resolved. It appears to be a problem with the widget

  7. Hi all,

    In the Twitter widget, you should only enter your username.

    So if your username is domsh, that is ALL you should enter into the widget (not a full URL).

    I hope this helps!

  8. IT WORKS! THANKS :)
    May I say they should change in the support http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/twitter-widget/#twitter-username
    the misleading : "(i.e. Twitter.com/username)" ? it ends up in a waste o f time-
    TY again zandyring .

  9. Hi there,

    The documentation specifies that you need your username, and you can find it by looking at the URL:

    Twitter username: The username of the Twitter account that you want to show tweets from. When looking at a Twitter page, the username is the last part of the URL, as shown in the image below. (i.e. Twitter.com/username)

    I can see how this would be confusing, however! :) I have edited the support documentation to make that more clear.

    Cheers!
