As the word "support" in the title of this topic might indicate, I am rather less interested in displeasure with the operating philosophy of the new management, than I am in resolving the issue. Can you be of help?

No. I can no longer navigate Twitter. I'm guessing it requires membership to view anything posted in 2023 or later. The older Tweets I am "allowed" to see, that are still available to anyone, work just fine:

Thank you for that. It makes sense. I can see a way around that (for members), but probably not worth the effort.

What is someone called who was a Twitter member, but currently is not? An "X ex-member"? An "Ex- X member"?

As a note, phpBB 3.3.10 comes with the Textformatter v.2.11.5.
Textformatter got Twitter/X code updated around 2 weeks ago but there wasn't a release yet.
So there's a chance to get it working after it got released and phpBB 3.3.11-RC1 got dependencies updated to the latest.

TextFormatter requirements are no longer compatible with phpBB. It requires PHP 8. PhpBB still allows all the way down to PHP 7.1. So we can’t get versions beyond 2.11.15

Indeed. Then it probably makes sense to override it with the custom collection definition.

I noticed if you change the link to Twitter it happens to fix the issue.

Code: Select all

However the issue continues after refreshing the page a couple of times and says it can't find the tweet or X post.

Maybe it'll continue though due to Twitter rebranding.

it was broken earlier, but embedding starting working properly again on my site. Perhaps X fixed this issue?

I'm likewise still finding that embeds work as long as the link is "twitter.com" and not "x.com" (lol).

Same here. Manually editing users’ posts from the x.com to twitter.com works for me.

With that in mind, is there anything that can be done from the extension side to continue to process x.com tweets?
