Filter Settings

  • Show user mentions - Choose whether to display tweets which contain @mentions in them; this option will NOT filter retweets with @mentions or @replies
  • Show @replies - Choose whether to display tweets which are @replies to other users; this option will NOT filter retweets which were originally @replies or tweets where the reply is the only @mention
  • Show Retweets - Choose whether or not you want to display tweets the user retweeted (With this option enabled, the tweet displays with the retweeted user's avatar and username, if turned on, and displays "Retweeted" in front of the time)
  • Define number of tweets to scan - Choose to override the module's logic to determine how many tweets to retrieve from Twitter to scan; useful for situations where you are not receiving the number of tweets you are expecting with filtering enabled
  • # of Tweets to Scan - If the above field is set, this field overrides the "# of Tweets" field in the Twitter Settings panel to determine the number of tweets to retrieve from Twitter; this is the number of tweets that are retrieved from the API and bypasses additional module logic to determine a number of tweets to filter (in testing, this is occasionally needed when a low number of tweets (less than 3) are selected for display)

Advanced Options

  • Caching - Choose whether or not to enable caching of the retrieved data; if enabled, the site will not reach out to Twitter on each page load with the module and retrieve the latest data, but instead do so at the specified time interval (useful for large traffic sites due to a limit placed by Twitter on the number of retrievals per time period)
  • Cache Time - Time in minutes before the cache is refreshed
  • Module Class Suffix - An optional CSS Class suffix to further customize the module's output, which applies to all aspects of the module to include the title
  • Bypass Web Intents for User Links - Choose to bypass the Twitter Web Intents script when clicking user links. This will cause user links to go to twitter.com instead of being displayed in a popup. Actions links are unaffected.
  • Override PHP Connector - If the module is not connecting properly, you can choose to use a specific PHP connector to attempt to retrieve data.
