    Hi Jason,

    The Theme Blvd Twitter Widget won’t connect anymore.\

    Looks like the Twitter API was updated on June 11, (and is causing numerous widget problems around the Internet).

    See: http://www.greeneavecondo.com/

    Will you be able to update the tb-widget-twitter.php in the Barely Corporate theme?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hello,

    We’re working on it. — At the start of the week, Twitter completely ditched the previous version of their API and they no longer support RSS at all, which is how the theme was using internal WordPress RSS functionality to pull and cache from Twitter. The entire system needs to be completely re-done.

    We’ll be releasing a plugin in the WordPress plugin repository that will replace the Twitter functionality currently being used in our themes.

    Until then, here’s a nice simple widget plugin made by another plugin author you can use for the time being to achieve a similar look the theme gives:

    Thank you for your patience. We’ve just released our new plugin called Tweeple. It can be installed from the WordPress plugin repository.

    After you’ve setup your Twitter Authentication settings and configured a Twitter feed from WP Admin > Tools > Tweeple > Twitter Feeds, you can use the plugin’s “Tweeple Twitter Feed” widget. — This will give you a similar visual result as the theme’s “Theme Blvd Twitter” widget did previously.
