Hello,

I tried to push Tweets by publishing posts. But the function, which allowed to choose a twitter does not work.
See Fig.:

@achillis it is not about working api - now, since 6.10.x I have not been able to choose a twitter. What you indicate is, that the twitter plugin is obsolete and will not recover. Is this correct?

@saunders I suspect that message appears when there is an issue with your api token. Check that your api key and secret is correct/working.

If you read earlier posts, you will surmise that you need to register and use your own api for your own key/secret

@achillis I have twitter api keys but the plugin offers no way to set. So where should I save the keys if not in the b2e twitter plugin?

Perhaps dev will allow to manually alter the keys, but a.t.m. you need to hardcode it in /skins/twitter_plugin/_twitter.plugin.php

look for:

define( 'TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY', 'z680vs....' );
define( 'TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET', 'OBo8xI6pvTR1KI0LBHEk...' );

@achillis thx, I used this, but it does not work. In settings > plugins > ping there remains "connection is not available".
And another challenge: how to handle pushing posts from different collections to different Twitter?

I made some alterations so that you may add your own key/secret in general plugin settings in plugin settings, perhaps you like to see if it is useful for you (@see '_twitter.plugin.php'):

I think you can change that in users > advanced settings[1]. So each blog is owned by a user, and if you connect to a different twitter account for that user, it will publish all post to that user's twitter account. Alternatively you can look in Collection > Settings.[2]

The secret and key is just to authorize your app, so that will not matter.

@achillis [1] shows restricted information because I have no admin rights. [2] shows "Connection is not available" (see #2)

Advanced page of User Settings shows:

@achillis meanwhile I'll bridge it by using ifttt.com. But in the long run I'd prefer to serve this by b2e. Thanks for you support and prompt answers!

I'm with the same problem
"Connection is not available!"
The same at plugin or user advanced settings
Any news?
