 Known Issues:
- There is no timestamp (i.e. "40 minutes ago") posted on feed updates.  
- Hashtags always render as URLs
- An "alt" attribute exists on an href element, which does not pass W3C validation.  It should instead be a "title" attribute.
- Deploying multiple modules to the same page may result in W3C validation failures, or CSS display problems.  If you encounter difficulties, try deploying just one module.


No results are showing up?

Make sure that your search actually returns results.  You can debug your search parameters by enabling the "Display Query Link" option and clicking the rendered results.  If no entrys are returned, then you know that the query you've entered is a bad search.

Tweets are taking too long to show up, or are not showing up at all?

First, check the Twitter search API by putting your Twitter username into the "From this person" field on Twitter's Advanced Search page.  If your tweets aren't showing up on that results page, then you know the problem is on the Twitter side.  If they do show up in the search results, but still are not showing up in the Twitter Feed module, then you may have module caching enabled.  Try clearing the cache (ensuring to make sure the modules are cleared) in Joomla, and on your browser, and reloading the page.

Hashtag filtering doesn't work?
Make sure to remove the # character when entering hashtags to filter.
