Tweet Button

Thanks to Ceri May for the visual button code posted over at xenfans.com

Thanks Mikey, this has been really useful

I did change the code slightly so as to use the official twitter button and counter, but it uses the variables you used so thank you..

PHP:
<a href="http://twitter.com/share" class="twitter-share-button" data-url="{$requestPaths.fullBasePath}{xen:link threads, $thread}" data-text="{$xenOptions.boardTitle} - {$thread.title}" data-count="horizontal">Tweet</a>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js"></script>
Actually after playing with it for a while I preferred the plain text version you created... Great work :)
If you want this code next to the FaceBook 'like' button, simply follow the info in the .txt and apply it to the template "share_page"

Here is what my share_page template looks like (using Cezz's button code rather than my link)

HTML:
<xen:require css="share_page.css" />

<div class="sharePage">
<div class="facebookLike">
<div class="label faint">{xen:phrase facebook}:</div>
<iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href={xen:urlencode $url}&amp;layout=standard&amp;show_faces=false&amp;width=450&amp;action=like&amp;font=trebuchet+ms&amp;colorscheme=light&amp;height=80" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true"></iframe>
<a href="http://twitter.com/share" class="twitter-share-button" data-url="{$requestPaths.fullBasePath}{xen:link threads, $thread}" data-text="{$xenOptions.boardTitle} - {$thread.title}" data-count="horizontal">Tweet</a>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js"></script>
</div>

</div>
ands a screenshot of it next to the facebook 'like'

I tried it on your website, with my popup blocker it redirects too

Code:
javascript:window.open('http://twitter.com/share?text=XenForo Development - Testing The Tweet Button :)&url=http://xfdev.com/threads/testing-the-tweet-button.4/', 'Tweet', 'height=480,width=640', false);
[/code]

then outputs

Code:
null

Looks great Mikey, short and simple.
I am of course hoping for a few more social features to appear in 1.1.x but until then this is very nice to have.

the answer lies within your post - "popup blocker" - this uses javascript to make it popup, even the official tweet button has it pop up, there is a version in the .txt file to use a non popup version, but if you have a popup blocker, of course this edit wont work for you :rolleyes:

I am going to sound really stupid. I know tweet is popular but I never did anything tweet related.

I am sure it is great but what does tweeting actually do?

Automatically tweet all threads from the forum to one central Twitter account would be rad~
best solution i can suggest.

use yahoo pipes to combine the rss feeds of all the forums (since XF seems to lack a combined RSS for the entire forum). feed that RSS to a service like twitterfeed or dlvr.it. and it would work fine. i am currently feeding the rss from this forum to a twitter account named @xentweets. :)
