NOC - Twitter?

Hi All.... I have a rotating NOC view and I'd like to add a view full of Twitter feeds..... Anyone done that yet?

Does NPM have a native RSS feed/reader resource? That would be nice. Something to allow you to easily add a bunch of pages/feeds/links/etc. to it, and then update every xx time...

Add a custom HTML resource to your NOC view, and then paste in the following code:

<object data=http://www.twitter.com/whateveruser/ width="600" height="400"> <embed src=http://www.twitter.com/whateveruser/ width="600" height="400"> </embed> Error: Embedded data could not be displayed. </object>

Change the text indicated in bold to that of the Twitter page URL you're after (change the hight and width 'till you get the view you need)  as well as any messages you want to display if the URL can't be loaded.

Hey,

So I’m putting this in the custom html box and just get a blank box?

Sorry, I’m not a twitter or html guy, haha….

Even easier:

If you follow the instructions, this should sort it out for you. They even create the HTML.

Pretty good….

Let me ask you this…. Is it possible to have one feed for everyone I’m following? Right now I’m following 6 feeds in 6 different custom html windows… The font is pretty small, hard to read 20 feet away ☺

Thanks Again!

Not too sure. The problem with the custom html resource is that it's designed to show static content, rather than pages which need authentication. You might be able to get it to work buy chaining the feeds in one resource, but I expect it'll be one loooooong window that way. Maybe add in a few custom html resources and add one feed to each?
