Cumulus and Twitter
« on: January 20, 2014, 07:23:16 PM »
Twitter changed their API on Jan 14th, which broke Cumulus's Twitter posting function. The newest version of Cumulus (1.9.4, build 1087) fixes the problem. The update can be downloaded at http://sandaysoft.com/downloads. Just wanted to post this here in case anyone didn't know.

Downloaded and installed the new version. Twitter would not update.
Tried unauthorizing  CUMULUS APP in twitter and made the mistake of refreshing the page.
CUMULUS APP totally disappeared. Cannot find the app to re-authorize it.
Tried deleting the old authorizations in the cumulus.ini file as well.
NOTHING.

Help finding the twitter application so that I can REAUTHORIZE it in my twitter settings would be appreciated.

Here was my fix.

Delete your twitter user name & password settings in Cumulus. Click ok.
Shut down. Restart.

Go to Configuration> Internet, punch in your user name and password settings again & the intervals & location.
Click ok.

Wait.

Yea!  It worked for me!

This question would best be answered on the Cumulus forum itself -- Steve (the Developer) is very responsive there
