Ray Social Feeds For Twitter

Popis

Ray Social Feeds For Twitter lets you display Twitter feeds beautifully on your website. You can display your own mentions timeline or tweets from any Tweeter user. The feed is highly customizable and can be displayed anywhere on your site in a List or Slider format, using either shortcode or widget.

You can define defaults on your Settings page. And can override those settings by specifying custom attributes in your shortcodes. Every widget & shortcode can also have its own unique settings.

Any page can have multiple shortcodes and widgets. And each can have its own custom specific settings. So each shortcode or widget can fetch unique feeds.

The generated feeds are mobile-friendly & responsive and adapts to the width of the container in which they are placed. Also, it automatically adapts the styling of your website.

You get a „Styling tab“ to control the look of the different components of the Twitter feed. You can change font size, color, font weight, inherit from theme. Tweet header, the tweet itself, and the Tweet footer can have separate styling.

You get a „Show/Hide“ tab to hide or display the Tweet components you want. You can choose to hide or display almost all of the components that make up your feed.

You can control many aspects of the slider, like display Nav arrows, display Dot navigation, autoplay, transition interval, transition speed, pause on hover, loop, and auto height.

The Tweets are cached for lightning-fast display. Specify your own cache duration.

Super easy to set up and install. Generate your access tokens in a couple of clicks only.

Some highlights of the plugin

  • Multiple shortcodes & widgets can be used on a single page or on different site pages.
