Mod Version: 1.0.4, by King Kovifor (Coder) King Kovifor is offline
Developer Last Online: Aug 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (32 votes - 4.22 average) Installs: 400
Released: 09 Feb 2009 Last Update: 14 Jul 2009 Downloads: 1905
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

Description

This modification adds basic Twitter integration to vBulletin. Once a user defines their Twitter username & password within their vB Options (User CP -> Edit Options), the Tweet This X links will appear.

It automatically adds a tweet to their account with the default text of "Check this out! " (which can be edited editing the "twitter_checkout" phrase) and uses your forum URL with either tp or tt.php as the link. These redirect to the thread / post that was tweeted.

Installation

  2. Install product file.
  3. Register an OAuth Application here, using:
  4. Click Install on vB.org
  5. Tell Your users.
  6. Enjoy
Upgrading to v1.0.4
  • Upload all files, overwrite everything.
  • Install product file.

  • Gain and copy the Consumer Key & Secret into vBulletin Options.
Upgrading to v1.0.3 or before.
  • Upload all files, overwrite everything.

      Add After:

      Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Requirements

THIS MODIFICATION REQUIRES PHP 5 DUE TO THE CLASS THAT IS USED!

PHP'S CURL EXTENSION IS ALSO USED! THE API CALLS ARE COMPLETELY DEPENDENT ON THEM!


This modification should work on vBulletin v3.5+, but was only tested on a vB 3.8 install.

Using the "tp.php" switch added in v1.0.2

With the release of v1.0.2, a switch between showpost.php?p=ID&postcount=COUNT and showthread.php?p=ID#postID has been added. Using it is simple, but requires a code edit (Note: This is a SUPPORTED code edit!). Open up tp.php and find this line:


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

Change that line to this:


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


This will automatically trigger the change any time it is loaded. This works retroactively and any links will automatically use the new settings once changed!

It seems like it lost the default code. I'll see if I can find it (but you can add it manually).

You can tweet threads. It's under "Thread Tools"

I did a fresh install on 3.8.3 - I also do not see the "Tweet This" link by the post number - So I too will like the manual code if possible!

Anyway - thanks for the modification Jeremy - it's very VERY nice - adds an awesome functionality for those of us really promoting the social network sharing!

Installed!

Jacquii.

/me nominates vBTwitter for MOTM!

I think the hack should be called vBTweet - but that's merely semantics LOL
Thanks again for the share

Thanks. And the name is derived as it becomes a bridge between vBulletin and Twitter. But, if it wasn't for their attempting to protect their name, I would have asked everyone to keep it in the name of the app.

Whenever I click the Tweet this link it brings up a message asking if I should allow access, I say yes and it errors out saying webpage is not found. I am using vBulletin 3.8.2.

It seems to be doing this on the call back url. I have it entered correctly.

This only happens right after install, all other attempts to tweet just reload the page with no errors.

Never mind, got it working, thanks anyway.

I went to this link http://twitter.com/oauth_clients and it only gave me access to a normal application which I filled out for access. No app for secrets or keys.
