On September 15th, Twitch made a change that required all API calls to be associated with a client ID. This change has caused twitchie websites fail to load twitch channel information. Below I’m providing a very easy hot fix for this issue that will allow you to fix your website without having to do a fresh install or lose any customizations you have made. Future purchases of this template will have this hot fix already included.
Navigate to your /includes/ folder in your twitchie install.
Refresh your website and confirm your twitch channel information is now loading.
Delete the api-old.php file from your web server.
Give yourself a high five! You did it!
Really sorry for the downtime this issue caused. It was something I had updated in v1.2 but I haven’t been able to push it yet. More on that soon. If you have any questions about this hot fix, please don’t hesitate to ping me.

Twitchie is a simple, beautiful and customizable one-page website template made for Twitch streamers that have no website coding experience. It’s designed to focus on what streamers care about most: their channel. At the same time it points visitors to the social networks that streamers update and connect with their audience on.
Twitchie is very simple and has 2 visual states: Online and Offline. When you’re online it tells your website visitors that you’re live, what game you’re playing, how many people are watching, displays your stream title and gives them a big pulsing button to push to view your stream. When you’re offline, it tells your website visitors that you’re offline, displays your offline message and gives them a big button to visit your channel. However, whether you’re online or offline, it will always display links to your social media.
Simple, beautiful design that focuses on your channel.
Responsive design (desktop, tablets and phones).
Updates automatically on every page load.
Super easy to visually customize to fit your channel.
Dynamically pulls your twitch avatar, steam status, title, game and # of viewers.
Can display a custom message when your offline.
Links to your favorite social media accounts.
Links to your favorite donation or tip service.
Fullscreen image or video background.
Super fast & lightweight.

To show how easy and flexible Twitchie is, I’ve created a few demo pages for some of my favorite streamers by only changing 3-5 variables in each config file.
