IT SEEMS THAT TWITTER HAS CHANGED THEIR WIDGET PAGE TOTALLY...

Get it as Facebook LikeBox. CLICK HERE!
Hey Everyone, I made this first as a Facebook LikeBox, and now you can get it as Twitter Widget too. Its very small and simple! I hope you will like it.. And what you will achieve with this tutorial is that when mouse over the image, it will shift / slide your Twitter-Box Widget.
Lets Start with the Example Images First, and then the Modification!
The modification may look a bit scary or confusing, but its very easy and after 1 time, you will install it without any help the next time!
Only 3 Template Edits
Image: Slide In
Image: Slide Out
Notice: This works on almost all vBulletin versions, I have used it on 3.8.x and 4.2 so far. You can now get this for vBulletin 4.x by CLICKING HERE!
==================== Modification Starts =====================
Code to add:
Step 2: Now we have to add the CSS, Go back to your Styles & Templates in (ADMINCP) and in your Templates Dropdown choose "Main CSS"! In your Main CSS scroll all the way down till you find the "Additional CSS Definitions" section! Add the following code below all the other codes:
Code to add:
Step 3: Go to this Site https://twitter.com/settings/widgets
Login with your own account... Or if you dont have an account then signup for one!
The Widget option can also be seen in your PROFILE, below! Its called WIDGETS! Now you can click on it and on you right side click on options are on your right side it says "Create new"!
Click on CREATE NEW, and after creating your widget, simply COPY the code from BELOW! We need to embed the code on your webpage, but in a bit...
Widget Settings: You can leave the Width and Height as it is. It will also ask you for a Scrollbar, and make sure to Click and mark it YES! Click SAVE on your twitter accounts widget that you created...
When you are done, Click on Finish & Grab Code!
Step 4: Now add the CODE inside the original code showen below, instead of the BLUE TEXT. After you have added the code, your full code should be ready!
Look for the BLUE TEXT below, and replace it with the code you just got for the Widget!:
Code to add:
REPLACE THIS PART --> "PUT THE WIDGET CODE HERE" WITH THE WIDGET CODE.
STEP 5: When your are done putting the WIDGET CODE inside the real code, Then now we need to put it all in your HEADER template, or footer...
Put the code below everything else in the tempplate. And you are DONE! (You can see an example of my CODE, used on my site below this post, so you get an idea of how it looks like when finished)
STEP 6: Now copy the "twitbox.png" image from the attachment below, and upload it in your "images" folder in the root of your ftp!
We are DONE, Please its very important that you click INSTALLED after Installing, for future support! Thank you!
I would Get very happy if you nominate this as (MOTN) Mod of the Month
