The LessMinutesOld option doesn't work

The LessMinutesOld option doesn't work, the app won't stop tweeting.

What could I try to fix it?

Gets "Internal Server Error" Whenever I Create a New Page

Alex swak (talkcontribs)

Hi. I configured the extension correctly, and it's working fine for edits, yet whenever I try to create a new page I get an "Internal Server Error" page without anything getting tweeted. The page gets created though, weirdly enough. Why is that? Latest version of Mediawiki is installed.

App created, need it for a different account.

So I created the twitter app and everything, but after Twitter changed their developers page you have to request permission to create apps. Long story short only my personal account got approved, and I need the app to work on a separate dedicated Twitter account. Does anyone know how I can authorise my newly created app to work on a different account? Sorry if this seems like a simple question, I'm not well versed when it comes to these things.

doesnt appear to work with 1.25.1 MW

no errors or anything, just nothing happens and even enabling checkbox on edit page never shows up

Same here on MW 1.23.9. I had it working without a flaw on MW 1.19 but the very same configuration seized working after the upgrade. Same symptoms as described by Fractalfederation.

I spoke too soon! Fact is that it ''does'' work when it is set to automatically tweet by its own. Though I cannot get the check-box to appear below the edit window.

Post major updates as well?

P858snake (talkcontribs)

Love this extension! Any chance it could be modified to also post significant updates? Perhaps based on the size of the edit rather than if minor edit was left unchecked. That addition as an option would be great! Here's an example of an extension (Extension:Wiki2twitter) that goes to something of the extreme with this idea.

You could always edit the hook that is calling the tweet function. I'll see what I can do if I find some time!

Forcing a language?

2001:44B8:2163:5600:D8B4:C93D:2F5D:F99A (talkcontribs)


Is it possible to force the tweets into a certain language? Although our wiki is entirely in English, we have users with other language preferences set in mediawiki and when they make an edit, the tweet appears in their language setting.

Bitly & googl links are nonexistent

JamesGeddes (talkcontribs)

I have tried configuring both bitly and googl URL services but neither display anything on the tweet. What is going wrong?

JamesGeddes (talkcontribs)

I've had to basically remove all references to the links in the tweets, until someone can advise otherwise.

Is this extension still under development? Shame if not, it's pretty great. Working links would certainly make it awesome.

JamesGeddes (talkcontribs)

Bodged a fix - removed the use of bitly and googl. It then uses the native URL, which is actually better in many ways. Still, would be nice if the shorteners worked.

Hallo community, I succesful use this extension, but it has still room for improvement: if I create a #redirect, it will be posted on twitter as a new site. It's possible to put this on false? I don't won't show all redirects as new site. Best regards 11:10, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Possible to blacklist the whole namespace?

Gleki.arxokuna (talkcontribs)

I don't want to show me editing pages in e.g. "Template:" namespace. Is it possible to disable tweeting about them all?

Return to "TweetANew" page.
