Hi Dabr fans!

Today a fairly major change was made to Dabr - all users not already using “Sign in with Twitter” were logged out. (aka OAuth)

This is a necessary change as Twitter will no longer allow users to sign in to Twitter in any other way as of the end of this month – and it’s also the reason why some of you have experienced bizarre API limits such as “20 hits per hour”. There’s a little bit more information over at http://countdowntooauth.com/ if you’re interested.

Once you’ve logged back into Dabr with this more secure method, everything will carry on working as usual. About the only difference you’ll see is that Twitpic is working again and your tweets will show “from Dabr” rather than “from dabr”.

Along with the big login change are a few tweaks from our great code contributor @edent too:

  • Bug fix for list subscribers
  • Bug fix for icons on the dark Kris’ Purple theme
  • List counts
  • Retweet counts (when available)
  • Profile locations now point to Google Maps

So what’s next?

For quite a while now, I’ve been getting ready to move into my new house. That’s happened (and it looks great!), but now I’m waiting for a phone line to be fitted so I can get a decent internet connection. Hopefully once that’s all in place I can resume my plans to improve Dabr.

If you’ve got any great ideas about new directions Dabr can go, or if you yourself want to take part in the planning, maintenance or development of Dabr then leave a comment or get in touch to let us know how you’d like to help. Right now is a perfect time to show your support, ready for when core development gets back on track.

Happy tweeting.

    Hi Ell.

    Tumblr support isn’t something I plan on adding to the site, but if you’ve got any inclination to learn to write some PHP code, or know someone else that does, then it would not be a difficult task to get this to work based on Dabr.

    @Dabr after this update the text is large on my Nintendo DSi and it can’t be sized down by the browser option. :/

    Requests:

    1. A Dabr equivalent of this page: http://twitter.com/#retweeted_of_mine

    2. The ability to add/remove people from our own lists.

    (I’ve never been able to find these two things on Dabr but apologies if I’m overlooking them!)

    I think those may be the only two things I still have to go to Twitter.com for so that’s testament to how great Dabr is!

    I would like to request for tumblr dabr, i’ve visited myopiclunacy.com/dabr/ using tumblr in its dropdown menu, n it worked. Im very excited and i think this is possible. But myopiclunacy.com/dabr/ tumblr setting still using twitter setting and nothing of tumblr option there. I’ve tried reblogged using the retweet fuction, n it works! I’ve been looking for php tumblr for all over the internet and couldnt find one except that site. Im a user of dabr for twitter for quite a long time i know the same concept is possible with tumblr because it also use API same as twitter. I am sorry if this request is too much. Thank you so much for the consideration. Thanks!
