    This looks really good. I have this setup already using twitterfeed.com but id much rather it depend on my own server. Just a few questions, does this hog resources? since it will be updating a lot..

    Does it post the forum title and the link or does it actually post bits of the post? Are you able to add a screenshot of a post and how it was posted on twitter? thanks.

    Now this could be handy. [​IMG]

    I used a similar one on my vB site and it was great for getting new traffic, but it only worked on the forums whereas my site is mainly a 'what's on' site and I always wanted this function for auto-tweeting new events being listed.

    Now with Jason's XenAtendo events mod auto-creating an associated thread, I assume that thread could be auto-tweeted too?

    This addon will auto tweet any newly created thread that is forum list that is selected under configuration.

    What is tweeted. Is the subject of the thread along with a link to the thread itself.

    Thanks for this. But I'd like to be able to tweet only the threads that I want to tweet, rather than have every new thread tweeted automatically.
    Like a Tweet this thread link next to the Watch Thread link.

    I could probably add that option in the future. Main question with that is who would have access to it. Only admins?

    I think an option to allow user ids & usergroups.

    I used to have a similar addon on vB4 back then, it was great to bring in new visitors and traffic. I'm going to install this addon tonight!

    Thanks :)

    I'd like to see that. Infact, xenforo ought to have that as a core feature imo.

    Admins and mods?

    Possibly an option to include multiple usergroups via checkbox. It's always nice for a hot topic to be tweeted by others with a further option to retweet if the admin tweeted it first. Hope that made sense.

    When I read the title I thought that was what this add-on was. Would be a nice feature to have and will certainly use it if someone doesn't create it first.

    I use this little [drop-down] baby on my vB site that allows anyone to share a thread to accounts they have on various other sites...

    I'm assuming that is a service provided by this site and would be easily implemented into xenforo? http://www.addtoany.com/

    1. Go to http://www.AddToAny.com and click "Get the Share Button".
    2. Click which BUTTON TYPE you want. You can leave the rest blank.
    3. Click "Get Button Code". Save this code.
    4. In the AdminCP -> Appearance -> Templates -> Create new Template. I called mine "AddToAll". Paste the code here.
    5. Open your page_container. Find
      <!-- main template -->
    6. Add BEFORE
      <xen:include template="AddToAny" />
    7. Done.
    Of course, this puts it on every page. You can alter the code to exclude certain pages but this is a quick & dirty way of doing it.

    I believe it is, I found the code on vB.org, I haven't tried it on my xF test site yet, but I can't see any reason why it shouldn't work.

    Not that I have a clue what I am doing. :D

    EDIT - nice one Dave for the above post.

    May I ask what you did to only get it to show on threads?
  18. Brogan

    Brogan XenForo Moderator Staff Member

    Apologies, I should have clarified my statement.
    I'm running phpBB - still waiting for a XF importer before I can switch (or to go the vB route).

    does anyone actually have this running?
    everything appears to be set as expected, but the only thing that is working for me is bit.ly link creation. nothing gets tweeted.

    Couple things to check:
    First check that your twitter app that you created has both Read and Write access

    Second check that you have consumer_key, consumer secret and OAuth_token and OAuth_token_secret filled out.
