Twitter Timeline: Allow for Auto in Width Specifications

Reported by: EMG Owned by: tmoorewp
Priority: normal Severity: minor
Plugin: jetpack Keywords: widgets twitter timeline needs-patch
Cc: jeremy+wp@…, richard@…


When the Twitter Timeline widget was first implemented into Jetpack, I ended up using it in all of my WP sites in place of other Twitter widgets as I found it to be very easily customizable through CSS and that included its size properties - both width and height.

With the new widget implementation, because of the fixed size constraints, I can no longer use it because on almost all of my sites, I utilize a fluid-width layout designed to flow with the changing of viewing screen size and a fixed-width widget within a fluid-width column just doesn't look right or scale properly.

I am -pretty- sure that such an option doesn't exist yet with the new changes to the widget owing to Twitter's API change and using percentages doesn't work the way it should at all and I've tried about every trick in the book to try and get a fluid-width/scalable size...

BUT if the option already exists, can someone please update this ticket with the solution as to how to enable auto-width?


Would it be possible to offer an auto-width option for those of us who design and utilize fluid-width WordPress themes?

Thanks in advance!
