How do I add a Twitter feed?

Use a Twitter feed to embed your department's or project's most recent tweets in a web page.

  1. Browse to the page you want to add the Twitter feed to.
  2. Go to Edit > Edit centre content or Edit right content as appropriate.
  3. Place your the cursor in the page where you want to insert the Twitter feed.
  4. Select Insert a… > Twitter feed in the toolbar.
  5. In the Twitter feed box, enter the name of the Twitter account. It's the last part of the Twitter account URL after https://twitter.com/ For example, the University's account name at https://twitter.com/WarwickUni is WarwickUni.
  6. Specify the number of tweets to display.
  7. Choose whether or not to display retweets.

    Insert Twitter feed window

  8. Select the Insert button. Code similar to the following is added to your page:

    [twitter-feed num=3 retweet=false]@warwickuni[/twitter-feed]
  9. When you have finished editing your page, select the Publish button in the toolbar. You should see the most recent tweets embedded in your page similar to the following:

[twitter-feed] tag attributes

Retweets aren't shown in Twitter feeds by default. You can include retweets as follows:

[twitter-feed retweet=true]WarwickUni[/twitter-feed]

You can display a plain text (unstyled) version of the Twitter feed – including links for hashtags, @mentions and URLs – and a customised title as follows:

[twitter-feed plaintext=true title='Your title']WarwickUni[/twitter-feed]

If your title contains an apostrophe then enclose it in double quotes:

[twitter-feed title="I'm using a long title"]WarwickUni[/twitter-feed]
