    Where can I get the (I'm assuming it's an add on) Twitter Feed add on that fits on your forum sidebar. I see a lot of forums that have that but can't seem to find the link.

    You can create a twitter widget via your Twitter account.

    Then just add it to a template and include it in the sidebar, or use one of the ad_sidebar_* templates.

    Something like this:
    <xen:require css="cta_twitter.css" />
    <div class="section ctaTwitterSidebar">
        <div class="secondaryContent ctaTwitterContent">
            <h3 class="ctaTwitterH3">Twitter</h3>
                <a class="twitter-timeline" data-dnt="true" href="https://twitter.com/account/feed" data-widget-id="1234567890" data-theme="light" width="250" height="458" data-border-color="#E0E0E0" data-link-color="#004400" data-chrome="noheader">Tweets from @ClipTheApex/race-news</a>
                <script>!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],p=/^http:/.test(d.location)?'http':'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src=p+"://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");</script>

    Can you tell me exactly how to do this? I was thinking of creating a widget and then just dragging it to my layouts, but wasn't sure how to do that either.

    No I mean, how to create the template and apply it to the sidebar. Like what template to add it to? Do I create a new one or add it and to which one? Also, how do I apply the template to certain layouts?

    The FAQ in my signature explains how to do that.
