3 Attachment(s)
Instantly share new threads posted in select forums to Twitter with this nifty modification. Supports adding hash tags and automatically trims your thread titles to fit within the 140 character limit.

Why use Tweet Poster?

Tweet Poster allows your users to stay up to date with your forums' news even while they're not at the computer, by having new threads posted in certain forums automatically post to your Twitter feed.
Additionally, search engines tend to prioritise links found on social media websites.

You can also optionally append hash tags to your automatic tweets, further increasing your exposure by making sure your tweets show up in searches for specific trends.

Is it possible to limit posting new threads only if author 's got more than "x" posts...

To avoid spam...

Thanks

It was originally designed to work with forums that have "news forums" that only staff can post via, so not at this time. You can see the full range of options in the screenshots :)

Feel free to post a new Feature Request thread here: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/f234/ and we'll take it into consideration for future versions :)

Nice modification, hope it works with the Instant New Thread Modification.

But, a little problem here, in the "Source Forums" option, there's no options at all, just a "forums:all" text. vBulletin 4.08.

I'm sorry to hear you are unwilling to attempt to resolve the mod conflict you're experiencing (ref. the thread @ our forum). If another user surfaces that is willing to answer our questions we'll be able to resolve it :)

We've not tested it with that modification, but presuming it uses the thread DataManager then it will work :)

Your vB version is probably too old to support the forum selector. Please try upgrading to vB 4.1.12 or vB 4.2.0 :)


@all: This Friday we'll be releasing a Patch Level 1 that fixes issues with posting special characters (such as Arabic text) - or you can grab a hotfixed version @ our site right now :)

Hi,

thanks for the response, but, I'll not upgrade my forum so soon (templates issues). There's nothing that could be done?

DragonByte Tech 07 Aug 2013 15:33

EDIT: You may be able to add the feature to your vB version by editing /includes/adminfunctions_options.php, I'll download 4.0.8 and see if I can find the changes needed.

EDIT 2: Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add above
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Find
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This may or may not work and is entirely untested / unsupported!

I gave you what i know.Even server log info.If that didn't help then the mod needs to be re-visited.You left out few important feature that you should have posted that others should look into when installing the this mod

* Make sure that the server is running json
* Make sure server is running Curl and openssl is enable

When in twitter dev console make sure to enable read/write feature is selected.Because in read option.It will not allow your post to show up in Twitter.And that what i explained when nothing was showing up in twitter when i did a test post.

Good Luck and Have a Great Day !!!!

Unfortunately that's not how it works :(

You left multiple questions un-answered, including follow-up questions to your response.

If we had been unable to resolve your issue remotely, I would have offered to visit your site and look into it there :)

I was unaware that there existed servers without these features enabled. I will look into adding pre-install checks to ensure these features are available before the modification will install :)

This is already explained in the installation instructions (Section 4, Step 4-5) :)

Thank you Fillip, it worked =)

Unfortunately the plugin is not compatible with Instant New Thread Notification. As soon as INTN is activated, after submitting a new thread that will be tweeted, it'll be created, tweeted and instantly notified. But there is no redirect to the created thread, the screen will simply hang on in the thread form screen.

Since there's no more support to the other mod (the code is re-usable), there's anything that could be done to solve this?
