BlogEngine.NET Twitter Widget

by Donovan Olivier April 30, 2010 10:24PM

I have been using a modified version of the BlogEngine.NET Twitter widget that I got from Al Bsharah, but noticed that it doesn't correctly create the link for Twitter user names that contain an underscore.

An easy fix for this is to modify line 354 of his widget.ascx.cs file to include an underscore in the regular expression:

private static readonly Regex regex2 = new Regex("@[a-zA-Z0-9_]*", 
                                        RegexOptions.Compiled | RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);

UPDATE May 1, 2010: The original has now been updated.
