FAQ

I’ve installed the plugin and now my website is blank!
Did you leave the Twitter username blank? If so, even if you are not using Twitter, fill it in. Use any username (ie. twitter). We are currently looking into this issue.

Where do I obtain the “Twitter Authentication settings”?
According to Twitter’s new security policy you will need four credentials (Consumer Key, Consumer Secret, Access Toke, Access Token Secret) to access data from your twitter account. These fields are mandatory. Go to https://dev.twitter.com/apps/new to create your Twitter Application (free).

We can’t really offer any support for third party plugins as we most likely do not have experience with them.
