Using the Twitter Module

Getting started

Once Qlue Twitter is installed you can find the module in Extensions->modules, then search for twitter. One you have the module settings open, the first step is to select which type of feed you would like, either a feed of tweets from a specific user or hashtag. There will be a field where you can type in either a #hashtag or user @handle, depending on what you have selected.

The display type setting lets you control how to display the module. Either as a single tweet, vertical scroller or horizontal slider. The last two allow you to display multiple tweets, and the last is the best option for wide positions.

In order for the module to display you should make sure the a Position has been selected on the right hand side, the module has been set to published, also on the right hand side, and you have selected pages in the Menu Assignment tab.
