Extension has two basic twitter modes. One is twitter Timeline, where tweets of a single twitter user are displayed, and the other is twitter Search, where you can enter a twitter search query, and then everything related to that query on twitter will be displayed.

Note: The WDS Twitter Module also has a color picker for various elements of the module. This twitter plugin will work across browsers and different Joomla! versions. On Opera and Chrome it will be native HTML5 input field of color type, on other browsers (which don't yet support the html5 element) it will be a JavaScript color picker (which will look even nicer in Joomla! 3.X).

Ticket support is offered with our paid versions only, if you require ticket support please upgrade to a pro version. Thanks

Downloading and installing this WDS Twitter widget is an absolute nightmare compared to other widgets. First you have to register with your full details, not just username and password. Then you have to go through a checkout process which is fairly straight forward except that the download link is tiny and difficult to find. I gave up and uninstalled it after 3 attempts at setting it up without success.
It might be financially free but costs an absolute fortune in time and effort!
Sorry Dev but I can't recommend this at all.
Owner's reply

Hi, that is the first time anyone has ever said it is hard to install, please read the dozens of other 5 star reviews and none of them mention this? Also, you never opened a ticket or posted a support forum post? And it's Twitter that requires anyone all the extra details and it's like that for any extension that uses their API. Feedback like this makes me want to stop making free extensions.

The extension installed easily and appeared to work fine if I used timeline. However, I needed to use search, and I could not get it to work despite a long time trying to. I submitted a forum support request, and after 13 days, there has been no reply.

I wanted to like the product, but I just can't make it do what I need. I can only recommend the extension if you do not need search.
Owner's reply

Hi rlmjoomla,

First very sorry that you did not get a response, however for some reason the forum we use is not sending us emails when a new forum post is added, even though we have it configured to do so. If you can please open a Pro support ticket we will handle this in our ticket system, this is normally just for pro users but as this is an unusual error I would like to take care of it there for you. You can open a support ticket here:

We take our support very seriously and apologise for this inconvenience.

I tried the free version and liked it enough to support the developer by buying the pro. One issue though... embedded twitter photos would not show. I asked them about it and within days they had upgraded to include it. They're polite, professional and incredibly responsive to customers.

Pulls the twitter feed every time, its worth using the secret keys etc to ensure stability

I'm using this on my old j2.5 site and it's never failed to keep up with the feed ... I've just grabbed the latest version via an update, jumped through the twitter hoops and it's working fine in my MAMP j3.2 too!

Purchased the Pro version when the Twitter feed stopped on one of our sites. The instructions that come with are great, explains how to get the codes to show the feed and when I had a small problem with my site in Safari & Chrome it was fixed straight away. Recommended!
