How can I create a Social Media (ex. Twitter) feed slider?


#1

I love the slider element in Webflow and I'm wondering if I can use it to generate auto content from a feed; any RSS feed or Social Media feed.

Here's a slider I came across for twitter: https://airtable.com/features

Can this be done using the slider element in Webflow? or do I need to use the html element for the whole thing?

Thanks

Hi @Anna_Kelian, thanks for the good question smile At the moment, you can embed content from a feed like a twitter feed, using the embed widget placed into a single slide.

The slider does not create new slides automatically based on a feed. You can create as many slides as you need, and put different content on each slide, i.e. a twitter feed, then on another slide put a fb feed etc...

​I hope this helps. If not, please let me know – I'm happy to assist further! smile

Cheers,
Dave

Thank you @cyberdave
I was just curious about the widget I saw on the Airtable site smile

Hi @Anna_Kelian, it is probably possible to integrate this to your Webflow site, but it would take some coding work : https://airtable.com/api

Is there a built in widget now? No, not yet. Does everyone want one ? You bet wink Cheers, Dave

Btw, i extracted the code for the twitter carousel and tried it in Webflow. But something is missing.
Here's the link and what I'm getting: http://testingtexts.webflow.io/
