Fix for Twitter API Error “Sorry, that page does not exist”

Many of you may have noticed that in the last week, your twitter plugins have stopped working on your wordpress blog or any other code which calls the twitter API. It seems to be that Twitter have disabled the twitter.com user_timeline method, and want you to use the api.twitter.com method instead. There is a very simple fix for this which I have detailed below…

Check your plugins page, and search the code for “twitter.com”. If you are currently trying to get your timeline via RSS using the following address (or similar):

http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/[yourscreenname].rss

Change this to:

http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=[yourscreenname]

Your twitter plugin should now miraculously start working again. 🙂

Migration to WordPress

After some time running my site using Joomla CMS, and testing WordPress for my photo blog, I have moved my main site over to WordPress too. Quite simply WordPress is about as simple as it gets for a CMS, very easy to install, config and update. The other big advantage is the massive theme and plugin selection which is very easy to access and install.

A quick word of thanks to christian_gnoth for his Joomla/Mambo To WordPress Migrator, which made the process of migrating my (admittedly minimal) number of post over, with zero hassle.

Now maybe I should try and actually write some content for a change!
