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
  1. Upload files in the /upload/ folder of the .zip into the directories as is.
  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.
  • Register an OAuth Application here, using:
  • Gain and copy the Consumer Key & Secret into vBulletin Options.
Upgrading to v1.0.3 or before.
  • Upload all files, overwrite everything.
  • install product file.
  • Remove template edits. For the record, they are here:
    • Open the postbit or postbit_legacy template (depending on what you use). Find:

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

      Add before that:

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

      Add After:

      Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
      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!

Awesome hack thanks alot!

EDIT: "Tweet this post" refuses to show up in Postbit_Legacy even after the manual update. Otherwise it works perfectly. I'm not sure that the problem is. Uninstall for now.

If you're sending out Tweets via Twitter, doesn't it defeat the purpose of not allowing guests to see what you're talking about? By allowing Guests to view the posts, it has the possibility of driving your membership up.

Thanks for the plugin but I am not sure how I can make it works...

I am actually developing a huge customized skin for my vbulletin.
So far, I see the "Tweet this thread" under the "thread tools". When I click on it, it say that my tweet has been successfully sent with the following error on the top of the page:


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

However, nothing is published into my Twitter account (I use both a test account on my vbulletin and test twitter account).

Beside this, nowhere and never appears the link to "Tweet this post". Only when I use the default template (which is what I don't want) and it returns the same error as above.

At last, I am using vbulletin 3.8.4 and my board has been translated into french.

Thank for any idea how to debug this.
