You can embed a feed of recent tweets on a SiteBuilder page.

Insert a Twitter feed

  1. Go to the page where you want to add the Twitter feed.
  2. Go to Edit > Edit centre content or Edit right content.
  3. Place your cursor where you want to insert the feed.
  4. In the toolbar, go to Insert a > Twitter feed.
  5. In the Twitter feed box, enter the account username – it's the part after the https://twitter.com/ URL. For example, the University's Twitter account is at https://twitter.com/WarwickUni and the username is WarwickUni.
  6. Enter the number of tweets to display.
  7. Choose whether or not to display retweets in the feed.

    Insert Twitter feed window

  8. Select Insert. Code similar to the following is added to your page:

    [twitter-feed num=3 retweet=false]@warwickuni[/twitter-feed]
  9. When you have finished editing your page, select Publish. You should see the most recent tweets embedded on your page – for example:

[twitter-feed] tag attributes

Retweets aren't shown in feeds by default. You can include retweets as follows:

[twitter-feed retweet=true]WarwickUni[/twitter-feed]

You can display a plain text (unstyled) version of the Twitter feed – including links for hashtags, @mentions and URLs – and a customised title:

[twitter-feed plaintext=true title='Your title']WarwickUni[/twitter-feed]

If your title contains an apostrophe, enclose it in double quotes:

[twitter-feed title="I'm using a long title"]WarwickUni[/twitter-feed]
