Twitter Messing up Superblogger and RokTwittie
Posted by Kevin McLeod • 15.08.2009
I just wanted to knock-off a quick blog post because I’m having some trouble with a couple Joomla extensions that are a big part of my repertoire. Today, twitter is causing some issues with both RokTwittie and SuperBlogger. RokTwittie a sweet little module published by Rockettheme (my favourite template supplier) that shows all of your latest tweets along select info from your twitter profile in a clean and module that adopts your templates css formatting. Love that. Unfortunately, I went to check my site today and my whole site was frozen – according to my webhost’s live chat, there was some sort of looping query that wasn’t preventing my site from loading. When I disabled RokTwittie, no problem.
But then I got curious and started clicking through the rest of my site just to be sure. Low and behold, when I click on an individual blog post, it was showing nothing but a blank page. I use Joomlaworks‘ amazing plugin called SuperBlogger to render my blog and give it all of the links, social bookmarks, tags, comments, etc, etc, that everyone expects in a blog. One of those rendered elements involves twitter which I’m guessing was bunging things up. I disabled SuperBlogger and my blog posts are showing up fine…but without all the pretty blog paraphernalia.
Anyway, I’ve got blog posts on both the Rockettheme and Joomlaworks forums but feel free to send us an email if you have any suggestions.
I’d ask you to comment but you can’t without SuperBlogger… OK, you can comment now. I deleted my Twitter username from the SuperBlogger plug-in settings and it is rendering properly.
