Hi. My twitter feed stopped importing my new tweets on my home page. http://portmantoo.nl/
i don’t understand why.. Does this has to do with updating to 3.5.2?
Also i would like to know how important it is to update to a newer version in general. I am now using 3.5.1 and 3.5.2 is available. However i am a bit reluctant since i changes quite a bit , also in some coding and css and i do not want to do this again because it took me a lot of time and trouble.
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 anymore. You can use a plugin like http://wordpress.org/plugins/twitter-widget-pro/ which supports the new api or generate a widget here: https://twitter.com/settings/widgets . 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.
You can update to WP 3.5.2 – we have not received any bug reports yet. If you didn’t modify the wordpress core files the update shouldn’t be a problem…
