Not able to create widget twitter settings > widgets

widgetsettings

#1

I am trying to create widget using the options given as Twitter settings > Widgets. But there is no luck while creating widgets.
While I am clicking on Create new Widgets, it’s showing options like Profile, Like, List, Collection, Search. After that whatever I choose it’s showing me embedded code and preview by giving name or hashtag to the text box - What would you like to embed, but not any option like publish or save changes or something like that.

And after that while I am back to again widgets, it’s showing You currently have no widgets..

All I want to know how to create widgets in Twitter. Please let me know.

Thanks

You do not need to create and save widgets in your account (except for a search widget). All of the others are available via cut-and-paste code from publish.twitter.com and they do not get saved into your account as widgets, so what you’re seeing is the expected behaviour.

How can I get twitter widget ID to use in site ?
And if widgets will be not saved in settings>widgets, then there will be no need of You currently have no widgets..
As whatever you will do, this will always show the same text You currently have no widgets right ?


#4

Search widgets currently will be saved in that section of your settings.

All other widget types no longer create an ID. If you’re using a plugin that requires a Twitter widget ID, then the author should update it to support our new publish.twitter.com formats.

Thanks Andy. I got that.

Does ZOLO Themes currently have a custom WordPress widget to add a Twitter timeline to a site? HTML markup generated by publish.twitter.com should function in a text/HTML widget area.

I am also having trouble with embedding twitter timeline from a list as a widget into my personal wordpress.com page. I know there are no widget IDs to put into the twitter widget on wordpress site but the html codes from twitter developers fail to work also:

<a class='twitter-timeline' href='https://twitter.com/NeuroNewsNight/lists/neuronewsnight'>A Twitter List by NeuroNewsNight</a> <script async src='//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js' charset='utf-8'></script>

OR

<a class='twitter-timeline'
  href='https://twitter.com/NeuroNewsNight/lists/neuronewsnight'>
Tweets from https://twitter.com/NeuroNewsNight/lists/neuronewsnight
</a>

Please help.
Thanks

WordPress.com Twitter Timeline Widget currently supports two embed types: profile and widget ID. If you are having trouble with a widget created by WordPress.com please contact WordPress.com support.

When I click on the button ‘Create widget’ a drop down menu appears with five choices as listed by zolothemes.

Clicking any one I am taken to the page https://publish.twitter.com/# which asks me to enter a twitter url.

Whatever I enter I receive a message saying 'an empty timeline.

Copying the html code just gives me tweets marked ‘like’.
I have searched the internet but cannot find any website covering my experience.

Help would be appreciated.


#11

Can you give any examples of Twitter URLs you’ve tried which produce an empty timeline?


#12

The main one is https://twitter.com/margocale.

Most of sample urls shown when you click on the box where you are asked to enter your url I have tried with replacing TwitterDev with margocale.


#13

That’s a protected private account. You cannot create a widget for an account that is not public.


#14

I am not creating an account in their name I replace their name with my own name such as https://twitter.com/TwitterDev with https://twitter.com/margocale.

I would like some help to overcome the problem so what url do I insert in the box.


#15

Can you please let us know:

  • What platform and web browser you are using?
  • What specific user profile (@handle) you want to create a timeline widget for?

#16

I am using windows 10 with Firefox,

An embedded timeline widget displays Tweets authored by an account that are available to the general public.

Twitter user margocale has chosen to protect Tweets; no Tweets authored by margocale are available to the public. The protect Tweets setting must be disabled before Tweets from margocale may be displayed to the public.


#18

I have unticked the box ‘protect my tweets’.

I have clicked on ‘create widget’, chose profile, inserted https://twitter.com/margocale in the box and have pasted the code created into a website. This has created a link…

A software package I am using requires me to insert a data widget ID to create a link. The code created above does not give this information.

What steps do I take to create this ID number?


#19

No ID is needed for embedding a user profile. Your software needs to update and remove the widget ID requirement. Please contact your software provider.
