The Twitter feed does not seem to be working for Coherence, is this due to another API stopping? , If so i have tried installing external Twitter plugins but it asks me for a callback url and im not 100% sure what that would be :/

I’ve had some issues on a lot of client sites lately with the twitter feed from anything other than the twitter generated widgets/code.
What I would recommend is just generating your own widget from your twitter account and paste the code into a text widget. Go to twitter.com then navigate to your widgets (https://twitter.com/settings/widgets ). Create a new one and that will give you the code based on the info you provide.

Thanks for this, yeah i have done this but each time i set the height of the widget it still stays at the same heigh which is really big at the bottom of the page. Is there anyway to reactivate / update the current widget plugin that came with the theme?

Yes, Twitter started to shutdown the current api on June 11 ( http://www.mediabistro.com/alltwitter/twitter-delays-api-shutdown_b41602 ) and our widget does not support the new api. Thus the widget won’t work after June 11. You can use a plugin like http://wordpress.org/plugins/twitter-widget-pro/ or http://www.woothemes.com/woodojo/ which supports the new api. Because the new authentication process is very complex we decided that we won’t bundle a twitter widget with the theme anymore and we’ll remove it with the next update.June 17, 2013 at 7:35 pm #125047
I just tried Twitter Widget Pro. It looks awful.
Your widget was just beautiful.
I will try woo, now.
Any suggestions on how to make this look nice, again?

I tried the twitter-widget, Devin mentioned. That looks better.
Question for my Sentence theme (http://www.hebammenblog.de/):
How do I change the background color. The twitter documentation doesn’t tell me.
At this moment my codesnipped is like this:

Please add this on your custom.css or Quick CSS
To change the border colors, use this
border: 1px solid #E8E8E8;

Put !important. Something like this.
margin-bottom: 10px !important;
background-color: #9C30AD !important;
border-radius: 5px !important;
border: 1px solid #E8E8E8 !important;

Twitter seem to be very resistant against any stylechanging approaches. It just wont work.
Any more ideas?
BorisJune 26, 2013 at 4:08 pm #125053
this is the code I get from twitter to put into my widget:
Maybe I can put something in here?
Here are some more Infos, but I am just not coder engough to solve it.

I see no way to style the content with css unless Twitter allows you to change the widget style on this page https://twitter.com/settings/widgets/new somehow. The problem is that the widget itself is a simple iframe and you can’t style the iframe content with css code from your website – you must have direct access to the iframe source code/content and obviously Twitter won’t allow you to modify the iframe content directly.July 2, 2013 at 8:24 pm #125055
