    Very nice.

    One suggestion. If this is activated, wouldn't it make sense to make the maximum status length shorter by how ever many characters you add on with your site name to avoid any cut offs?

    I thought about this... There were three options:

    1) Trim
    2) Have the via text pre-populated in the status field
    3) Reduce max limit

    I went with 1. Obviously the problem with number 2 is the user could just delete it. The only problem with number 3 is that there is no limit on Facebook so the Facebook post will always be complete so we'd be restricting people's Facebook statuses unnecessarily.

    I do like number 3 as an option... Maybe I will configure different behaviours as an admin option.

    I think my next release will cost £100. At least I can rely on stewart1champ to purchase it :ROFLMAO:

    Thanks dude, I hope you will actually use these one day. Your custom is much appreciated. Thank you.

    Tired of seeing everyone release great items, pirates getting them and releasing them, causing great devs to stop with their work. I figure at least I can contribute for the effort...

    I believed I had fixed that one...

    But anyway, the cause is likely that you've not updated the Admin CP options with the correct Twitter Consumer Key and Consumer Secret.

    You need to first set up a Twitter App here: https://dev.twitter.com/apps/new

    First page should look like this:

    Once created, go into Settings and change the permissions to this:

    Then on the application details page, you need the consumer key and secret from here:


    And insert them into Admin CP Options here:

    Problem solved now thank you but I have a suggestion or an idea for you; Can you add the new feature for Tumblr "Post to Tumblr"? it's possible for this add-on? This would be great if this can be done. Thanks.

    Well, this seems to works great!!....I am ambivalent (towards myself, not the add-on, of not truly understanding a bunch of the add-ons that I really like, but did not understand fully until I installed) about the explanation of this...but I really like this in practice. (Not a dig on anyone, it may be either reading comprehension problem on my part, or tiredness).

    Either way, I see huge usefulness of this and great potential. I will update with my experiences.

    I may have spoken to soon...the fb part seems to work well. I updated/input all the info for Twitter, but it does not seem to tweet my status. Will see if I can't figure this out.
