Go to widget management area and change the ‘Twitter username’ field.

Q2. Can I change the Slide Direction?

In front end widget area, if you see any news content out of area or invisible, it because of height and width of the widget, so you should arrange width and height of the widget in widget configuration area.

No, Option not available. If you want to scroll horizontally, use my Horizontal Scroll plugin and this plugin available for both text and images.

  1. Great plugin – congrats – works like a charm, the only thing i miss is that i cant choose that the URLs could open in a new window :-)

  2. I removed the widget – the text appears outside and to the right of the box. Only the title appears in the box. I also set the text color to black but the theme’s style sheet overrides the widget settings and display the text as red. I am using WP 3.0.1

  3. I have 2 questions.

    1.- Can I write in the “twitter searh word” more than one word, I dont know 3 or 4 words ..?
    2.- How many time it’s update msg display ??

    Help me..! pls

    • yes, you can enter n words “http://search.twitter.com/” search the words using this link and in the search result page, click feed,

      the same result u ll get in the widget.


  4. Great plug-in! I am having a problem with it displaying search results it is just telling me that there is no content available. I have tried a variety of search terms, but with no success. I have also tried the searches on twitter and they all work.

    Can you please let me know if there is anything I can try to resolve the issue? The site is currently pw protected, so please let me know if that could affect the functionality?


  5. Hi, installed yesterday and it looks great, thanks.

    The initial set of results appeared but it doesn’t look like it’s updating. The same tweets appear and they’re now 20 hours old.

    The search term is London taxi and I’m running the latest WP installation wordpress-3.0.2. Any ideas please?

  6. Hey just a heads up, you forgot to define the script type when you call the .js file. It throws the Xhtml validation off :)

    On your site the error is here:
    Line 520, Column 158: required attribute “type” not specified

    Just needs the type defineing then the Xhtml validates nicely as you can see from my site :)

    Great plug in :D.

    • on another note, if you want to use more than 1 keyword, Twitter has the ability to use operators like google (OR and AND). Your search term can be something like so:

      chickens OR “I Love Chickens” OR mycoolusername

  7. Nice plugin. 3 suggested features:

    a.) That it remembers the selected language (every time I hit save the default – all languages is overwriting my selected english)

    b.) Ability to block all tweets that have a link.

    c.) Ability to show more than just one tweet.

    Thanks otherwise :)

  8. The problem I found (easy fix I am sure) is that it skews to the right, almost touching the right margin (even in your demo here.) On some themes there is no way to get the text off that right hand border line.


  9. Great Job… Only one little thing…

    Hen opening a link in the widget, the user is taken to the page-but in the same window as the blog!

    Could you have at least the default be to open a new window, please?

    If anyone else wanted, perhaps a choice in the configuration, but for now a good fix would be _blank

    Thanks for a great widget!

    P.S. A bit of REGEX (AND OR) wouldn’t hurt! :)

  10. Didn’t like the fact that a cick took the user away frm the blog, so I made the .php look like:

    if ( $link == ” ) {
    $myLink = $title;
    } else {
    $myLink = ‘‘ . $author . ‘: ‘ . $title . ‘‘;
    $myLink = mysql_real_escape_string($myLink);

    Making this selectable in the set GUI would have been ideal, bit I can’t spend time on your excellent plugin right how.


  11. The plugin does not work correctly in Wordpres 3.1.1.
    But it is an excellent idea especially if you could search for hashtags
    Sorry my English

  12. Hello,

    Wondering if this is possible…

    Rather than entering a search term is it possible to use the post-title from each post? So users can see comments regarding each post-title.


  13. Hello,

    love the widget, but is it possible to scroll only tweets from a specific username?

    It would also be nice to show not only tweets from that user, but tweets that mention or are in reply to that user.



  14. To amend my previous comment (after more carefully reviewing the comments… sorry) Is it possible to see ALL tweets from a specific user, not just the tweets that were posted recently?

  15. These days of austerity and also relative panic about running into debt, lots of people balk resistant to the idea of making use of a credit card to make purchase of merchandise or perhaps pay for a vacation, preferring, instead just to rely on the particular tried plus trusted method of making payment – cash. However, in case you have the cash on hand to make the purchase entirely, then, paradoxically, this is the best time just to be able to use the credit card for several factors.

  16. This doesn’t seem to work in fetching the feed on WP 3.3.2? With a valid twitter name only the “no announcement text” appears.

  17. I found your Twitter plugin the other day and added it to my blog, and was pleased by how easy it is to configure. When I opened the blog today though there were no messages in the widget.

    The problem seems to be with messages that contain apostrophes. They are quoted verbatim in the script your widget adds to the page, and this results in a syntax error, because your strings are single quoted. A filter to convert symbols into their equivalent html escape sequences would probably fix this.

  18. Hi Gopi, could you help me please I don’t understand the widget. Where do I put search terms?

    Enter Twitter Username @IPGuides
    Widget Title: Tweeters
    Font : verdana,arial,sans-serif
    Font Size (Ex:13px): 12px
    Font Weight(blod/normal) normal
    Font Color (Ex: #000000) #000000
    No Announcement Text : “No tweets showing at present”
    Width (only number): 180
    Height (only number): 120
    Slide Direction(0=down-up;1=up-down): 0
    Slide Timeout (1000=1 second): 3000
    Text Valign (top/middle/bottom): middle
    Text Alignt (left/center/right/justify): left

    that’s all there is, I can’t see where I put search stuff in.

  19. Well I am having a weird problem, if I put username gopoplus it shows tweet but anyother shows nothing, second of all where do i put search keywords?.??

  20. Doesn’t work. Seems like a nice idea though.
    Sorry I don’t have time to debug this. I’m moving on to a widget that works. Too buggy!

  21. What is the best method to override the css?.
    I am using yoo-themes and wordpress.

    I attempted to change the a:hover but it does not respond, to any of the changes

  22. I’m trying to use this plugin on WordPress 3.5.1 but it doesn’t show any tweet. It builds the html tags (divs, etc.) but just prints out the word “undefined”. Any clue?

    The php line of code is:

    echo do_shortcode(‘[twitter-real-scrolling username=”arquidiocesisbb” height=”30″ display=”3″]’);

    • Hey Dave! Do you know of any other plugins that have this same functionality and are communicating with the new API? I have been unable to find a single plugin for WordPress that mimics this same functionality.

  23. This plugin has stopped communicating with Twitter’s new API. Are you planning on updating this plugin to communicate with the new API? Does anyone else have any other suggestions on any other plugins that has this same functionality?
