Twitter generator

This dynamic slide generator is available in the PRO version only.

Tutorial

  1. Go to this page of twitter: https://apps.twitter.com/
  2. Give a name to your application, a description, write down the url of your website, and write the same into the Callback URL.

  3. Agree with the Developer Agreement, and click on Create your Twitter application.

  4. Go to the Keys and Access Tokens tab, and copy the Consumer Key (API Key) and the Consumer Secret (API Secret).

  5. Paste them into our backend Settings → Twitter Settings. (Make sure that you don't have any empty space characters in the end or beginning of them.)

  6. Click on Request token and allow to use your account with this api.

  7. After this you will see the token appearing, and you should save on your settings.

  8. Now the api is done, and you can create a new slider, or use an existing one.

  9. Choose to give dynamic slides to your slider.

  10. Pick Twitter - Timeline.

  11. Set up your generator, change the number of slides to how many do you want to be in your slider, change the cache expiration to the time you want your slider to look for new data, and if you want to, you can check, what will be on your slides in the record viewer.
  12. Now you can start working on how your slides will look with the datas of the first slide. You can put down layers, and use the VARIABLE signs to put that data inside them, what you want there to be.

  13. If something is not clear, check out how the dynamic slide generators work.
