Hi Simon, look in the shortcodes (above the text editor in any page) and full instructions are there for embedding your twitter feed

Sorry misunderstood the question OK for the one in website settings just add your twitter username, for example in our demo site we have added clubbuzz

I'm new to ClubBuzz and want to add a live feed of our Twitter timeline.From what I can see, Twitter have very recently changed the way embedding works and no longer provide a Widget Id, though existing Ids still work.
Has thisĀ been picked up and when might it be addressed, please?

Hi Sarah, I am trying to do this too and suggest that Alan is experiencing the same. When you create widget as suggested in the short codes guide, I get the option to create the code, which can then be copied. This has no reference to a Widget Id. In twitter it doesn't look like you can create a widget any more , just the code to embed, unless I am overlooking something. Can you verify that. The instructions are still valid? Thanks.

You can now embed Twitter - see below

To use the Twitter Timeline widget, you must first create a Twitter Widget. In your Twitter account select Profile/Settings/Widgets/Create new/Profile/Create a Profile/Select option embedded timeline. Once you have created the widget, just use your Twitter username in the shortcode
Example if Twitter username is clubbuzz

{{twitter_timeline[clubbuzz]}}
