Default Re: Display your Twitter posts

Hey PhilJ,

Great tool, still got some problems with it.

I've been testing it on a static page. The tool loads the tweets. No problems with that. I would like to place the square box which loads the tweets without the menu around it. I've tried wrapping this code: {if $main eq "catalog" && $current_category.category eq ""}
...
{/if}

around:

{include file="twitter/twitter_d.tpl"}

If i do it doesn't show anything.

Can't get the loading box without the menu. Do you have any idea how i could get it to work?

Thanks in advance!

try using this instead:
Code:
{literal} <script type="text/javascript"> $(document).ready(function() { $("#twitter").getTwitter({ userName: "accountname", numTweets: 5, loaderText: "Loading tweets...", slideIn: true, slideDuration: 750, showHeading: false, headingText: "Latest Tweets", showProfileLink: false, showTimestamp: true }); }); </script> {/literal} <div id="twitter"></div>

Hi Amy 2203,

Thanks for your explanation. Now i've got another question. We've been using the txt_welcome area to fill up the mainpage. I know it's not the best thing, but it's completely build in html. Now i'd like to add the {include file="twitter/twitter.tpl"} to this html built homepage. Unfortunately that isn't working .

Do you have any idea on how to fix that into an html table?

How is it possible that the {include file="twitter/twitter.tpl"} works on a static page but not on txt_welcome?

because the statc page is parsed by the smarty template engine, but the txt_welcom is just a textvariable so it justspits out what is in it, it doesn't get parsed by smarty.

Default Re: Display your Twitter posts

Ah Allright, and what if i do it like this.. (this worked with another jquery slider)


<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://MYSITE.COM/skin1/twitter/jquery.twitter.css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://http://MYSITE.COM/skin1/twitter/jquery-1.3.2.min.js" ></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://MYSITE.COM/skin1/twitter/jquery.twitter.js" ></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
$("#twitter").getTwitter({
userName: "myaccount",
numTweets: 3,
loaderText: "Tweets laden...",
slideIn: true,
slideDuration: 750,
showHeading: false,
headingText: "Nieuwste Tweets",
showProfileLink: false,
showTimestamp: true
});
});
</script>
{/literal}
<div id="twitter"></div>

I've got it to work with another jquery file. That worked. Can't get this to work. What am i missing?
