Tweet Display Back 2.0.1 Released

Tweet Display Back 2.0.1 has been released as of today.  This release includes bug fixes, new features, and updated translations.

Over the course of the previous month, several small bug fixes have been made to improve module rendering.  Also of note, a "bug" which was present in 2.0.0 with list feeds in that it was not possible to display retweets was fixed by Twitter by them adding support for retweets to the lists API.  Additionally, "beta" level support for migration was added to the Joomla! 1.5 package by including a migration class compatible with jUpgrade.  A full list of changes is as follows:

  • General changes:
    • Improved renderRetweetCount
    • Removed the count check from the templates as it is handled in the helper
    • Move common template variables to be processed pre-rendering
  • Bug fixes:
    • Make the hashtag link check case insensitive
    • Add the @ symbol to the mentions link check
    • Fix a bug in the Powered By link generation
  • New features:
    • Add jUpgrade migration files
  • Translations:
    • Updated fr-FR translation
    • Added it-IT translation


This release would not include the features or translations that it does without the support of the contributors. I'd like to thank Jurian Even for assisting with code development and Manoel Silva, JOKR Solutions, Jurian Even, Benjamin Ash, and Enrico Ardito for providing translations for distribution with the module.

Future Development

Planning and development has begun on the next version of Tweet Display Back.  An often requested feature is the ability to pull data using Twitter's Search capabilities.  This will now be possible in two methods.  The first method will be with the introduction of a new set of parameters which will result in the same type of output that is already used for the user and list feeds.  The second method of displaying search results will be possible by introducing Twitter's Widgets for displaying a user profile, list, and search results.  Although these widgets are not formatted like Tweet Display Back's native templates, they integrate directly with Twitter and provide additional features without having to write a customized code base, features such as live updating of the module.

Documentation & Support

As always, further information about the module is available in the Tweet Display Back section of the site, including information about the module's parameters, available translations, FAQ's, and more! Be sure to check out the newly posted Tutorials as well with tips on optimizing your module configuration and customizing the module's templates.


As of this release, Tweet Display Back is distributed in a total of seven languages.  If you would like to update an existing translation or add a new translation, you may do so by visiting the project page on Transifex.
