Version 1.1.2 changes

  • Bug fix: Fixed problem with tweets immediately preceding an “//ELB//” tweet getting occasionally dropped.

Version 1.1.1 changes

  • Bug fix: Fixed problem with liveblog posts being scheduled for future publication if your server timezone setting is ahead of your WordPress timezone setting. For example, if your server is on the East Coast and your WordPress timezone is set to West Coast, the liveblog posts were being published three hours late. Thanks to @chrisale_ for helping isolate this bug.

Version 1.1 changes

  • Links within tweets are now clickable. Thanks to @WinObs for the suggestion.
  • Bug fix: Fixed the “Warning: Cannot modify header information” message that appeared when saving plugin options on some installations.

If you like the plugin and would like to buy me a cup of coffee, please consider donating. Thanks.

    Is auto refresh coming to the plugin sometime?

    How about an option on creating a new live blog post that allows @ replies to you to show as well, showing who they are from, and only added if a blog tag (ex #lb) is added. A live discussion logging on a topic.

    BillyBobJenkins: @Roamer145 I noticed you said that blaa blaa blaa #lb 12:00am
    @BillyBobJenkins Yes I did. Blaa blaa blaa. 12:01am

    Is there any way of this being updated on the fly without having to refresh the page?



  4. Thanks for writing about this. There’s a mass of great tech info on the internet. You’ve got a lot of that info here on your website. I’m impressed – I try to keep a couple blogs fairly on-going, but it’s a struggle sometimes. You’ve done a big job with this one. How do you do it?

    I love the timestamp feature. I wish the Twitter Tools did that with its daily digest. In fact, rather than using the hashcode, would it be possible to just automate the plugin to schedule a daily post that grabs that day’s tweets and lists them by timestamp? That’s all I really want. Otherwise, I will have to start each day with a nlb and end it with blb, every single day. But oh, boy, I like the way the posts turn out with this plug-in!

  6. I love your plugin and it was so useful at SXSW last year, hover it doesn’t seem to work with WordPress 3.0.1. Any chance of a new version coming soon?
