Installation[edit]

    wfLoadExtension( 'TwitterTag' );
    
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


Usage[edit]

Currently the extension supports profile timeline, list timeline, and likes timeline. Plans are to additionally implement collection timeline, and possibly individual tweets.

To add a profile timeline, use following code: <twitter screen-name="screen_name" />.

To add a list timeline, use following code: <twitter screen-name="screen_name" list-slug="list_slug" />

To add a likes timeline, use following code: <twitter likes-screen-name="screen_name" />.

Alternatively, full URL can be provided for all supported timelines using parameter href=.

Most parameters provided by Twitter, such as height=, width=, and lang=, are supported.
