WordPress boldy theme latest tweet not showing – Fix

I recently had the problem where the latest tweet was not being displayed on our site. After a while searching I found the cause. Apparently Twitter no longer supports the original url which is used in the code of the theme. To fix it:

    1. Go to your site root folder and open wp-content/themes/boldy and download the footer.php file.
    2. On line 27 you will see this URL in within a larger piece of script. Change the URL from:

http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/

to

https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline/

  • Now save the file back into the wp-content/themes/boldy folder.
  • Make sure you clear the cache in your browser before youtry re-loading the page.
