I Am trying to embed a list of our tweets in our website. I tried the easy tags option but this does not appear to allow you to create a list of tweets. Do I need to use the widget module if so how do I ensure that I only get a list of our tweets ?
I am following instructions for creating a channel in order to use the social stream module. For the channel I need to authenticate with twitter however no instructions on how to do this or create a user map. Why not use the api key ?
We are not using your login module so how do I do this ?
I enabled the sclogin module temporarily when use the twitter button it redirects to a blank page?
The url starts as follows

I have tried both sc login module, joomla login module and and the joomls login via a menu and enabled the show buttons etc. None of which work. I get twitter Authorise app but the return URL is always a blank page and if I go to administration control panel the user has not logged in therefore I cannot set up the social stream I do not get a user in the user map list. Can somebody please advise.
To setup a Channel, yes, you will need to setup the Twitter API and enable the SCLogin module (temporarily at least) to authenticate with the owner of the channel. During that authentication, additional permissions may be asked to confirm that JFBConnect can read your Twitter stream.
For more details on setting up the streams, see our Quick Start page in the section "View Social Network Streams". That links easily to the different documentation for the steps of setting up the twitter app, enabling login, setting up the channel and configuring the feed display.
I hope that helps, but if you get stuck along the way, just let us know.
Thanks Alex, Tried all of that with all login modules SClogin and joomla etc. When I authorise with twitter i get the twitter dialog. Login to twitter with my superadmin email login and then sometimes the redirect is a blank page and in channels I do not get a joomla user for the channel owner.
I have another login module (improved ajax login) also using social so I disabled that and now get some progress the redirect works for sclogin but I get error
This email address is already registered.
and the user is not logged in.
I have same page selected for redirect but this error takes me to the registration page.
I have checked all api keys they are correct and they work ok with the other module
Glad you figured out that the other social login module was causing problems.
As for the message you're seeing, go into the JFBConnect -> Configuration -> General area. In there, enable the "Automatically Link Users by Email" setting. Then, when you next register/login with Twitter, it should automatically link the existing Joomla account to Twitter and create the proper mapping in the User map area. From there, you should get the proper permission prompts and, hopefully, things will go smoothly.
I hope that helps!
Thanks Alex all working,
One other question. When the twitter feed loads in page our twitter logo displays briefly then disappears.
Any idea of cause
Inspect element shows unable to load image from twitter
First, set the cache duration to 0 in JFBConnect > Configuration area. This will force the posts to be pulled on refresh. It's possible the information Twitter was returning is incorrect and maybe that's been resolved.
I'd also like to see what URL for the image the channel post is pointing to, but there's a 404 error on the https://www.youdopet.com/investor-relations page.
