I'll have to ask the owner. Could I point him to anything specific setting-wise? Can I look that up myself in the php info tab in "admin" perhaps?

No, I'm not blocking anything. But the higher-level provider also blocks, so:

From the server
and see what it returns from the command line.

It will return nothing, Twitter is blocked in Russia.

P.S. But it's blocked more than a year, so something changed last month in Twitter API or code of the mod.

What Planet-Dust wrote: He can't use the link as Twitter is blocked in Russia. But we were able to get Tweets embedded up until like a month ago or so, perhaps after we updated to 2.1.4 and related software (php etc.).

If your host is in a country that blocks twitter then the mod would not work.

So we were lucky then when it worked all this time I guess.. Too bad.

What changes this mod makes and which files? Does it modify database?

I want to test this, but I don't wanna mess my forum, so I probably have to make proper backups first..

vbgamer45

Yes database changes new table you can check the mod site for the files it changes.

Ok. Thanks. I will check.

I have never installed mods to my forum.

Does smf have automated uninstall for mods which reverts all changed/added lines in files and database?

vbgamer45

File modifications yes as long as mod is coded right. And it depends if you install mods after the mod. Normally you should uninstall the mods installed after first. If it does file modifications.

Database if using SMF's database functions calls. There is an option to uninstall data. Not all mods support this.

I can't get it working. Mod install went through without problems, no errors. I checked files and those are okay. Apache error logs are clean.. but when I post twitter link, it just show the twitter link in post.  :-\

What I am doing wrong?  :-[

I don't know is this related, but has Twitter made some changes viewing content without logged in, because I can't see anything anymore?

vbgamer45

Check your javascript error console, console log.

How I can check that? I have firefox..

vbgamer45

Bing it/Google it is probably either site or javascript issue.

It is redirecting every request to login page.. So i believe that your code is working fine, but Musk-******head has blocked everybody if not logged in and cant get tweet. Maybe it is temporary block..

curl https://twitter.com/i/web/status/1674677315073351681
Found. Redirecting to /i/flow/login?redirect_after_login=%2Fi%2Fweb%2Fstatus%2F1674677315073351681

Wonder why xenforo tweet embeds are still working in another forum..

vbgamer45

yeah....i think might be due to musk since you can't view tweets now without login.

Every month changes now...
From being able to read/view a tweet, to being able to browse the entire site without login. And now back to complete restriction, a bit ridiculous.

Any ideas why xenforo embeds are still working?
Is there some paid API which they use? I noticed that some tweets are blocked in xenforo too, but not everything..
