Hello there,
For people don't know, Twitter just released their new "Follow Button" so we can use it in our website.. Source

- What is this mod for?
This mod is to help your members to show there there twitter username so people can follow them. and with this button you don't have to leave the page to enter to twitter then press the follow button "like the old days"
now people can follow you without leaving the page in just one touch!

- Can I show how many followers He/She has next to the Follow button?
Yes, Twitter added this choose so it's up to you "as forum admin" if you want to show to your members how many followers they have or not.

let's begin work..

1- you have to add new user profile field:
- Go to your admincp.
- From "User Profile Fields" choose "Add New User Profile Field"
- Choose "Signle-Line Text Box"
- Make it like this screenshot:

- Click "Save"
- Remember this number after you save your new field "check the screenshot" :

2- Now edit your (Postbit or Postbit_legacy Template) dependence on which one your are using.
- Search for in it for:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

- Add below it:

- Change 5 to the field number you made before "check the second screenshot above"
If you doesn't want to show how many followers they have add this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

- Change 5 to the field number you made before "check the second screenshot above"
- Press "Save"
3- This is how it going to be in the thread:

And this is After you press "Follow"



4- That's it

NOTE:
- Note your member that if they want to add there twitter ID they have to edit their "profile" by going to "Setting" then "Edit Profile". And type their username without the @ . Ex: ToNetU not @ToNetU

Is there any way to make this so it's in the avatar column instead of at the end of each post the person makes?

Installed as it's a great idea, but I'm only getting text displayed 'eg Follow @NorthStandChat', not the Twitter graphic. The link it generates is going to twitter.com home page and not my Twitter account too.

Can be seen in first post here:

Edit: Ignore - all fixed now!

Hello - this seems to break the board when using IE9. I suppose it could be used as a deterrent to the members from using this browser...

It works for FF & Chrome though! Thanks!
