Twitter Feed Instructions

  1. Before displaying Tweets on a YSM website, you must grant our web application access to your Twitter account. To do so, visit the following URL and log in with the credentials of the account you would like to display on your site:
    http://twitterapp.medicine.yale.edu/login/twitter/
  2. Then, log into Tridion. In your Building Blocks folder, create a new component with the schema Twitter Feed.
  3. Enter the Twitter account name (the handle, not the full name) in the Twitter Name field. You do not need to add the "@."
  4. Enter the number of tweets you'd like to display in the feed.
  5. Save & Close.
  6. Go into the Root folder of your publication, and open the Structure Group and then the page that will house your Twitter Feed.
  7. Click Insert to add a component to the page, and browse to the component you just created.
  8. Click the component once, then select Twitter Feed Main Column or Twitter Feed Widget to insert it in the right column from the Component Template dropdown menu.
  9. Click the Insert button, then Close.
  10. Save & Close. Then publish!
