Before you start using arc_twitter you will need to make sure that the cache directory is writable. See the ‘Caching’ subsection below for further information.
arc_twitter should now be ready for use on the public-side of your site.
To unlock the admin features of this plugin you will need to associate your site with a Twitter account by connecting to Twitter from the plugin’s options screen. Click on the link to connect to Twitter, you will be asked to login to Twitter, clicking this link will temporarily take you to the Twitter site where you will be asked to login and approve access for TXP Tweet to read and write to your Twitter account. If all is successful you will be returned to the options screen and your user name will appear.
At any time you can disassociate your Twitter account with TXP Tweet via your Twitter account preferences on the Twitter website.
To uninstall arc_twitter simply delete the plugin from the ‘Plugins’ tab. This will remove the plugin code, delete related preferences and drop the arc_twitter table from your Textpattern database.
