I copied and pasted the code from a twitter widget into my wordpress widget, but all I end up with is a link to “follow me on twitter.” Any help would be so appreciated. Thanks!

I can’t get it to work. Followed the directions to a t and nada. September 24, 2008 at 1:55 am #256273 thesacredpathStaff It does work, I just did it in my own test blog for another post. Post your twitter feed URL here. September 24, 2008 at 1:55 am #256274 raincoasterMember Could you be more specific? September 26, 2008 at 3:03 pm #256278 tammydottsMember On a related note, I followed the instructions in the FAQ and it worked. But it’s not displaying any updates from when I first created the widget. Any ideas? September 26, 2008 at 5:11 pm #256279 vivianpaigeMember The RSS feeds are cached, meaning that it takes a while for them to update.

October 2, 2008 at 6:54 pm #256281 vivianpaigeMember No, I don’t October 2, 2008 at 7:08 pm #256282 bubelStaff What is the feed URL you are currently using? October 4, 2008 at 10:05 pm #256283 embrownnyMember Thanks @wpvstp, that really helped. October 21, 2008 at 11:10 am #256284 digiredoMember I don’t seem to be able to get Twitter to work, actually none of the RSS feeds work. Any idea? October 21, 2008 at 11:40 am #256285 carocatMember Can you post the RSS feeds you’re trying to use here, please? October 21, 2008 at 11:41 am #256286 carocatMember In addition, the blog linked in your profile does not link to a wordpress.com blog. Can you specify which blog you’re asking about? October 26, 2008 at 4:30 am #256287 leanngMember http://twitter.com/statuses/friends_timeline/15565969.rss I tried to use this feed & it appeared on the blog but it stated that an error occurred. Help? October 26, 2008 at 5:01 am #256288 vivianpaigeMember If you are hosted here at wordpress.COM, please provide a link to your blog. And consider linking it in your user name as explained in the sticky at the top of the forum. If you are hosted here, the problem is that you must replace the word “friends” in the link with the word “user” (no quotes) October 26, 2008 at 6:49 am #256289 raincoasterMember You can’t use your Friend feed. You can only use your own as far as I’m aware. October 26, 2008 at 6:37 pm #256290 paulg1Member Hi, I’m new to all of this. Regarding Twitter, I followed the instructions everyone has been recommending but my blog says “An error has occurred; the feed is probably down. Try again later.” It’s said that for ages. Is this related to how long it takes for Twitter updates to appear on WP or is there something else I should be doing? Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere. October 26, 2008 at 6:41 pm #256291 vivianpaigeMember Please post the link that you have in your RSS feed.
