List feed disappears


#1

I noticed that periodically the widget I created to pull a List feed for PokJournal disappears, sometimes for hours on end. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to prevent it?
Thanks.

You can see an example, now (2/14/12 @12:15 p.m. EST) at www.poughkeepsiejournal.com

The widget renders fine when I view it. It’s likely you’re just experiencing rate limiting from your IP address – a single IP address can only make so many calls to the API per hour, and the widgets make requests to the API through the browser, based on the user who is viewing the content.

As a non-developer, is there a way to limit the calls within the widget? I know our page refreshes at least every 15 mins.?

Increase your interval to 40000. Look into the code, you will find a line like this:

interval: 40000, the more the better. If the interval is at the default, 30000, it easily times out but increasing the interval reduces the hit on Twitter server.
