    hello,
    I’m doing something wrong I guess. When I enter [alex-hashtag-grabber hashtag="sheenroast"] in a html entry on my page, it gives me:

    Warning: file_get_contents(http://search.twitter.com/search.json?rpp=100&q=%23sheenroast) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /opt/www/ghysensw/web/www.hoepertingen.be/wp-content/plugins/alex-twitter-hashtag-grabber/alex-hashtag-grabber.php on line 36

      Hello, It appears that your installation of PHP is not compatible with the twitter hashtag grabber, Sorry. The reason why is file_get_contents appears to be disabled in your PHP configuration.

    Hey,

    Love the plug in… quick question:

    When I put the shortcode in a page or post, it always displays the results at the top of the page or post, regardless of where on the page I put the shortcode. Is there a way to make the search results display on the page relative to the placement of the shortcode?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Hi. Is it possible to download the results to a file (text, pdf) rather than to display online?

    Many thanks for this. I use it with my students on my math website.

    QUESTION: Would it be possible to format the date stamp so that it is in another color and on a separate line? Also, could it be possible to start the tweet with the name of the tweeter and in another color?

    Thanks again.

    I had another question. it’s a bit different than the plugin you are offering but is there a way to do something similar to what they do here http://tcot.dailyright.net/ – I am looking to somehow manually add people in and have their images/info and everything appear but it arranges them in order by followers. Want the person with the most followers on top. Thanks for your time.

    How hard is it to be able to post to specific hashtag using a master account? Maybe add in a t.com link?
