Framework Update: Twitter Widget and Shortcode

Since Twitter has retired their API v1, you are now required to create your own Twitter Application in order to use Themify Twitter widget and shortcode. We've updated our framework to work with the new Twitter API. You just have to create an application with your own Twitter account and enter the keys in Themify > Settings > Twitter Setttings panel.

Step 1: Creating a Twitter Application

1. Go to Create an application on Twitter. You might need to login normally using your Twitter user name and password.

2. Enter a name, description and your website's URL in the corresponding fields, leave Callback URL empty. twitter-app-1

3. After creating the application, you'll be taken to your application home. Scroll down to the OAuth settings section
Twitter OAuth settings
You'll see the Consumer key and Consumer secret to copy them.

Step 2: Enter the access token

Go to Themify > Settings > Twitter Settings and paste in the Consumer key and Consumer secret keys.
