Textpattern CMS support forum
I don’t remember this little piece of advice you mention but IMHO this argument is for feeds where you want to import future items (like from a calendar feed) or where you want to use the TXP import date to show up in your standard article stream.
For issues with some (mostly non valid) feeds you might have to check the original SimplePie documentation.
(!) I am not importing Twitter feeds so I don’t want to show you a wrong solution!
But using SimplePie to dynamically show feeds (without asv_tumblelog!) I made the experience that some feeds behave better and look better after sending them through FeedBurner.
Again: This point covers look & validation of feeds and not the import to the TXP article database.

Markus, the little piece of advice I cite was first mentioned above in post #70.
At any rate, for reasons unknown to me, and without my having edited the plugin code, it is suddenly working and the twitter feed is showing up on my test page. Yay! Knock on wood.
Now I need to refine some things. I would like the title to be the unique ID of the tweet, and I would like it to link to the source. Much like in the tweetie client where you can control click on any tweet to go to the source. I realize this will be difficult (for me). I’m no coder and I need to figure out how to “get” that unique ID. Perhaps too far above my paygrade. I’m going to try, though.
The other thing I need to tackle is I need for URLs within tweets to function as actual hyperlinks, not just text. This probably seems like an odd request. There’s rah_urltolink, but I basically want something that will automagically wrap any string starting with
<a></a> because posts scraped from twitter will arrive with text URLs.
Thanks again for your responses.

Maybe a SimplePie cache issue?
I would like the title to be the unique ID of the tweet, and I would like it to link to the source.
ID: Absolutely no idea (Plug-in smd_xml?). The feed delivers what the feed delivers. SimplePie delivers what the feed delivers and asv_tumblelog is writing that data into the article database :)
Link: Use the custom field for the source link to build the link (you have the code already above)
The other thing I need to tackle is I need for URLs within tweets to function as actual hyperlinks, not just text.
a) That totally depends on the feed structure itself. If the feed delivers that data you will see it in your article. (You must check the raw XML feed data to see all delivered data. )
b) If you need feed item parsing for linkable items (hashtags, URLs) TXP doesn’t help but you can search for PHP solutions and integrate them via
txp:php tag. Example: I have an old test version running for identi.ca http://sankt-georg.info/dingshow/ but this is not my PHP and I don’t think it is still under development.
c) Have a look at Yahoo pipes. I think some people already built some solutions.

Same problem here – stuck with data in the admin preferences section. Has anyone solved this?
IMHO Amit Varia is not following the forum too much.
… Well, I cross posted the how to get rid of preference pane in the basic admin preferences tab issue
I hope he or others can/will help.

Hey guys – it’s been a long time since I’ve been on the forum. I haven’t had much time over the past year and a half to maintain this plugin so I’m not sure what is causing the issue. With my current schedule I wouldn’t be able to take a look at this for a couple weeks. I would love to get back to this plugin, but with priorities where they are I unfortunately can’t right now.
If there’s any interest from a plugin dev to take over this plugin, please let me know. Thanks!
