I run Blogengine, and i downloaded 28444 source code which has the fix for twitter widget (since the 28411 source code),  just copied "twitter" folder and paste it over the old one . it shows error :

Widget Twitter not found.

c:\BlogEngine.web\widgets\Twitter\widget.ascx.cs(167): error CS0104: 'Timer' is an ambiguous reference between 'System.Web.UI.Timer' and 'System.Threading.Timer

any one faces same problem ?!

Someone recently reported this on the Patches page.

We should fix this.  The word "Timer" is in widget.ascx.cs file twice.  It needs to be fully qualified.  Replace "Timer" with "System.Threading.Timer".

I actually just checked in a new version of BE,, that doesn't even use the Timer anymore.

If you're on, you can still do the search and replace mentioned above.
