    This guide will let you put a Twitter button beside each post, allowing you to link to specific posts within a thread instead of the entire thread, or put a link to tweet beneath each post, whichever you prefer.

    Displaying Tweet Link Beside a Post

    Copy this code:
    <xen:if is="{$xenOptions.tweet.enabled}">
    <xen:if is="{$controllerName} == 'XenForo_ControllerPublic_Thread'">
        <div class="tweet shareControl">
            <a href="http://twitter.com/share" class="twitter-share-button"
                data-lang="{xen:helper twitterLang, $visitorLanguage.language_code}"
                data-url="{xen:link canonical:posts, {$post}}"
                {xen:if {$thread.title}, 'data-text="{$thread.title}"'}
                {xen:if {$xenOptions.tweet.via}, 'data-via="{$xenOptions.tweet.via}"'}
                {xen:if {$xenOptions.tweet.related}, 'data-related="{$xenOptions.tweet.related}"'}>{xen:phrase tweet}</a>
    Go to your message_user_info template and look for this at the bottom:

        <span class="arrow"><span></span></span>
    Between the two </div> tags, past the code you copied before and save the template.

    The last thing is to go into EXTRA.css and paste the following code in there as well:

    .messageUserInfo .tweet { margin-top: 10px; }
    The end result looks like this:


    Displaying Tweet Link Under a Post

    Alternatively, if you want to make a Tweet link to match the other links below the message, copy this code:

    <xen:if is="{$xenOptions.tweet.enabled}">
    <xen:if is="{$controllerName} == 'XenForo_ControllerPublic_Thread'"><a href="http://twitter.com/share?url={xen:link canonical:posts, {$post}}" target="_blank" class="item control tweet">{xen:phrase tweet}</a></xen:if>
    Then go to post template. Find this section:

    <div class="publicControls">
                    <a href="{xen:link threads/post-permalink, $thread, 'post={$post}'}" class="item muted postNumber hashPermalink" title="{xen:phrase permalink}">#{xen:calc '{$post.position} + 1'}</a>
                    <xen:if is="{$post.canLike}">
                        <a href="{xen:link posts/like, $post}" class="LikeLink item control {xen:if $post.like_date, unlike, like}" data-container="#likes-post-{$post.post_id}"><span></span><span class="LikeLabel">{xen:if $post.like_date, {xen:phrase unlike}, {xen:phrase like}}</span></a>
                    <xen:if is="{$canReply}">
                        <a href="{xen:link threads/reply, $thread, 'quote={$post.post_id}'}" data-postUrl="{xen:link posts/quote, $post}" class="ReplyQuote item control reply" title="{xen:phrase reply_quoting_this_message}"><span></span>{xen:phrase reply}</a>
                    CODE HERE
    Right before the closing </div>, paste the code you just copied.

    The end result looks like this:


    You can put the link wherever you want in the section of course, just look at the surrounding HTML and place it where you want. :)

    Thanks to King Kovifor for pointing something out and OperaManiac for the lead on being able to make the link-only option.

    Thank you SO much Onimua for fulfilling my request for this add-on.

    I'm going to add it to my site right now and test it out.

    Peggy Well-Known Member

    OK, easy as all get-out to install, excellent!

    The only issue is, after installation, there is a 1 in the box on all posts, lol.

    Ah, seems there might be a complication with the thread itself that I didn't think about. Let me see if there's something I can do... :unsure:
  5. Peggy

    Peggy Well-Known Member

    ah I see what you're saying. If the thread's been tweeted, then there's going to be a 1 by each of the posts.
    I can understand the logic behind that actually.

    However when I tweeted the one post, the other posts did stay at 1 while the post I tweeted went to 2.
    I don't know about anyone else, but I'm ok with that.

    Go back and use the new code I put (it's really a one-line change) and tell me how that works.

    It worked, and it's AWESOME!!!

    Thanks so much for taking the time out of your blog coding to do this add-on.

    And thanks KK for whatever assistance you gave Onimua. :p

    I just love XenForo and its group of helpful members, coders, etc!

    Well, I take credit for 1/6 of the code. :D I'm just in a very playful mood today with Onimua. :D

    Hi Onimua,

    Thank you for this, it works really well :) I've one small problem, I just noticed that this adds the tweet option to private conversations too which could be a bit dodgy in the hands of a trouble-maker.

    Is there a way to prevent this bit?

    Renada :)
  16. Peggy

    Peggy Well-Known Member

    Oohh I hadn't noticed this. Yes that could lead to trouble.
  17. Onimua

    Onimua Well-Known Member


    Yes, there is a way... give me a bit of time.

    Onimua, replacing that new code with the old code seems to have removed the tweet option from everywhere - did I do something wrong?
