How to use with [bd] Widget Framework:

Note:
  • to limit the view permission of Twitter Sidebar Block you need to edit Expression field in [bd] Widget Framework
  • it is not possible to show the Notice Block and use it with custom user fields

Enable add-on in widget (sidebar):
  1. Add a new Widget in [bd] Widget Framework and choose renderer [Advanced] Template (not [Advanced] Template (without wrapper))
  2. In the Template field add this: cxf_twitter_sidebar_block
  3. In the Position field add this: forum_list
  4. In the Title field type the widget title.
