vBulletin 2 Twitter - Take Your News Straight To Twitter!

vBulletin2 Twitter Courtesy A Health Forum http://ahealthforum.com
Special Thanks to Jarvis From http://seovb.com for help
vbtotwitt.php copyright Vojtech Semecky released under the terms of GPL
===========================================================

This modification will take one of your latest news threads and post it directly to your twitter account. You must have RSS enabled for this modification to work. You can specify a forum to pull the content from using external.php?f=FORUMID

The RSS feed will post your thread title directly into your Twitter account, and then create a link back using TinyURL. The links are automatically converted into tinyurl.com links via the TinyURL API


Install instructions

1. Upload the includes folder into your forum root. This will automatically place the 2 scripts need to operate this into the "includes/cron/" folder
2. Install the product-ahealthforumcomvbtwit.xml file via the Product Manager in your adminCP
3. Navigate to vBulletin Options -> vBulletin Options -> vBulletin 2 Twitter and enter your name and password.
4. Hit Save and Wait 2 minutes
5. View your twitter account to confirm that an update was posted.
6. Enter the URL to your forum feed.

Notice: By default for testing purposes this makes one tweet announcing you've installed vB2Twitter You are free to delete this tweet as it is for testing purposes only!!!!

===============================================================

vBulletin 2 Twitter Options

1. Twitter Username: This is your Twitter.com username. If you don't have one yet, you can get one for free at http://twitter.com

2. Twitter Password: This is your password for your twitter account. Notice that its not hashed or encypted so anyone with adminCP access can view it. If you can't trust those who have your AdminCP information with such details, then this mod isn't for you sorry.

3. Feed URL: This can be to any sites feed if you want, but I suggest pointing it to your news forum and creating a prefix such as [Breaking News] to make the most of this. Your twitter posts will then be prefixed with [Breaking News] Thread Title link to thread.

=============================================================


Again, this modification will take the latest thread from the forum RSS feed you specify. I don't beleive in spamming on twitter with useless crap, so I've made this modification to only take one thread at a time from your forums RSS feed.


Trouble Shooting:

If it does not automatically update to your account. Go into the scheduled tasks manage and run the task manually.

external.php gives a blank page. Enable RSS from your vBulletin Admin Control Panel.

I'm using zoints-seo, and i get "Error: RSS file not found, dude." when i use the scheduled task...

ericgtr 16 Mar 2009 14:26

FYI, this can be done without a modification by placing the RSS feed of your forum into twitterfeed.com I do this myself for one of my more popular forums. It can also do all forums as well.

thanx for this.

-1 cron-job in my vB

raaowdot 16 Mar 2009 15:35

Won't work for me either. I'm using the RSS feed /external.php?type=RSS2 which displays all open nonrestricted forum posts and this plugin may require the forum code only.

I've resorted to using the twitterfeed.com for now but it only post a maximum of 5 messages every 30mins so at busy time messages will be missed.

Any chance of an update to get this working as the popularity of Twitter is growing fast and my users want this feature.

Note this is my first posts here in 2 years as I've never has the need to ask something that wasn't already answered a million times before but Twitter is pretty new and we need more plugins. The Twitter on Profile pages works brilliantly though.

AHealthForum 16 Mar 2009 18:00

Some tips to help get it working.

Make sure your server has cURL installed or it may not work correctly.

After installing and you enter your RSS feed location. Go to the forum where you selected the RSS feed come from and make a fast post in there.

vBulletin Scheduled tasks don't seem to run every minute for some reason, so it may take a few minutes for it to update to twitter

I just uninstalled on my forums, and reinstalled following the instructions and it still works okay: http://twitter.com/healthforum Feel free to register an account at health forums and make a test post to see.

lord_of_chaos 16 Mar 2009 18:47

Twitterfeed.com does only run the Cronjob every 30 Minutes...

@AHealthForum:
1. Could you advertise a little bit less inside your product? "HealthForum" everywhere annoys me. ;)

2. This mod always posts the last RSS-item into my Twitter Account. It doesn't care that the item is two weeks old and that it have been posted before.

My Twitter profile looked like that:
- "News from 2.03.09"
- "Some other handmade Twit"
- "News from 2.03.09"

Jasem 16 Mar 2009 19:37

This is does do, I haven't been able to find a work around, but i haven't actively looked for one yet either as I just use my twitter account to post updates from the forums and this is good enough for that :D

Make sure your have your RSS enabled on your forums, and cURL support on the server.

This may also only work with PHP5 as i haven't tested on PHP4 yet


I'm in the process of moving to a another hosting company that should let me test this in PHP4 and PHP5 to see if that maybe a problem for some users.

I'm not sure, i've never seen it include that.

Try viewing your RSS feed in the browser and see if thats the title.

If not, try deleting the tweet, and then waiting for it to update again.

I've set it up to just read my news forum. When I view what is in that feed, I see the following:

There's no sign of that "cdata" code in there.

nice idea, I'll have to check this out sometime

puregraf 20 Mar 2009 19:46

it does work with PHP4 i have it working on my site, it only posted 1 post though and i put the main RSS feed for the entire forum, there should be more posts posted though.. well see

ZGeek 21 Mar 2009 00:46

I just set it up for my site and it works perfectly. Much better than twitterfeed.

Thanks so much for this!!

It only takes your latest forum post one at a time. So whatever the last RSS feed post is, this will be your tweet when the RSS updates.

Great glad to hear! I have to agree as well since this will let you do an unlimited amount by setting the cron to constantly run. A lot more flexibility imo by setting different cron times

AHealthForum 23 Mar 2009 03:25

Update: I've been using this mod since released here, which was the same day I created the Twitter account and I have 62 followers and my traffic has increased about 40%. And i've only posted 3-4 tweets myself :D

What I am seeing is it is posting the same thread over and over even if there is no new post there since the last RSS update. I am doing something wrong?

This doesn't limit you to X amount per hour.

Doesn't rely on 3rd party site that could go down

One more question, using on a different site than mentioned above. If I manually run it from scheduled tasks it works. If I don't, it never pulls the feed on it's own. Any thoughts?

make sure you're getting visitors to your site and that $cronimage is in your footer.

You could also try to edit the cron times so it only runs once every 10 minutes or so rather then once a minute.

ah I see, I've never ran into the limit on my site.
it seems like it would just be spamming twitter if your posting to many

and twitterfeed has never gone done for me, I don't know why anyone would want to make things more complicated :p
cheers dave

Spinball 07 Apr 2009 19:54

I would rather use this mod than twitterfeed because I don't trust anyone with our twitter login details.
However, I would like it to check for new posts in several of our news forums every hour and post them to twitter. We would end up with maybe one new twitter update every couple of days tops, so it wouldn't be spamming.
If your mod can take the new posts from several forums and not create duplicate twitter updates, I would install it.
I appreciate the mod does what you need so you're not particularly motivated to amend it. But a simple table of posted thread ids would prevent duplicates.
Thanks.

skylab 08 Apr 2009 12:58

I'm using vBSEO and getting the same error. :o

Did a test post and nothing. Looked at the RSS feed in a browser it's there, but no updates to Twitter.

AzH 09 Apr 2009 14:24

Installed and working fine. Thanks!!

Just a couple of questions though. How do I get it to pull from more than one, but not all forums. Currently I'm using .com/forums/external.php?f=4 as my feed, and I want it to be .com/forums/external.php?f=4 + 6, 7, 8, etc (but not all).

Ahh, just one question then. :)

skooby 09 Apr 2009 16:39

Hey,
I was "sorta" able to get this working...

I did one update yesterday in the forum it is tracking and it worked. Then today I made 3 new topics, and out of the three, two showed up in Twitter. One was the same topic I did yesterday (so it posted that twice on Twitter), and one of the topics I had just made. So out of the 3 topics I made in the forum it is tracking today, 1 showed up, 1 was out of date, and 1 didn't show at all.

All 3 show if I go directly to the RSS feed page (and are the newest in the feed).

Any idea how I can troubleshoot? This tool is great, thanks for working on it.

skylab 16 Apr 2009 01:38

Getting a few issues
<![CDATA[ error comes up every now and then.
and sometimes duplicate twitter posts some with errors and some not. you can take a look at my twitter to see whats going on.

Flep 17 Apr 2009 12:25

I get CDATA issue too

A825F933D42B 19 Apr 2009 16:41

my server does not support curl. Is there a no-curl option?

skylab 21 Apr 2009 13:32

It's not a huge issue but hopefully the CDATA gets fixed sooner or later.

SBlueman 02 May 2009 18:35

Will this work at all for v3.6.12? I tried it and got the CDATA issue too. Might it have something to do with thread prefixes?

beachinxj 03 May 2009 15:04

Is there any way to make it not do duplicate threads other than increasing the time between script runs?

fbriceno97 04 May 2009 04:05

Got same error:

Error: RSS file not found, dude, when using the scheduled task... external.php is perfectly working as we have it on viigo, php5.... everything is ok, but that error is present.

How do i solve it?

any ideas?

thank you

Vanjezi 15 May 2009 16:34

Can u make to all rss?

Its missing a lot threads posts

gordietbh 16 May 2009 18:27

here is the code I've implemented to get around the duplicate issue.

The issue arose when the latest thread was not the current status of the twitter account, so I updated the code to search the entire feed page for the thread title. It now checks the contents of your twitter page and looks for a match with the title of the first item in the RSS feed, if it finds it it does not try to repost. If it does not find a match it will call the twitter API and submit the message.

I then had an issue where it was posting <![CDATA[thread title]]. I discovered that this only occurred when there was an apostrophe in the thread title, so I added a replace command to strip out the CDATA text.

There was also an issue where if your server did not receive a response from the twitter page in a timely fashion the script would not find a match for the latest title thread and would repost. I added a line in the script to search for your account name in the page, and if it finds it then call the twitter API. This ensures that there is no more double posting.

You need to replace the contents of the twitask.php file in the includes\cron folder with the script below. You need to replace the ACCOUNTNAME text in the line http://twitter.com/ACCOUNTNAME with the name of your twitter account. this needs to be in the same case as the account name appears on your twitter page.


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

If you have $cronimage in your footer template and have the twitter scheduled task set to run every minute each time a new thread is started the title will be updated. You will also need to set the refresh time on your RSS feed in vboptions to 0 if you want to ensure that every new thread is updated to your twitted feed. If the refresh time is 60 minutes you will only have the latest thread submitted every hour when the RSS cache is refreshed.

I've been running with the above script and options for the last several days and have eliminated the duplicate posting issues.

chatzworld 17 May 2009 12:50

Ohiosweetheart 22 May 2009 15:48

GrossKopf 25 May 2009 13:25

Well, other people have posted this, but there's been no reply, so I'll post it too.

My RSS feed is correct: http://flotgaming.net/forums/external.php?f=43

If I run the task manually, I get the error: Error: RSS file not found, dude

Any fix for this?

BackSideSA 02 Jun 2009 05:00

correction... only works some of the times... i sometimes find that a single thread is posted up to 15 times in a row... most of the time it works, just not as frequent as i hoped.

06 Jun 2009 15:31

First, thanks for the mod.

My question is this.. I have 10 different "news forums" segmented by category (see http://www.amiga.org).

ie:
----
Amiga News and Community Announcements (http://amiga.org/forums/external.php?f=2)
- Amiga Events (http://amiga.org/forums/external.php?f=35)
- Amiga.org site announcements (http://amiga.org/forums/external.php?f=16)

.... and so forth.

The problem is that the primary (container) forum is #2, but http://www.amiga.org/forums/external.php?f=2 does not show any of the RSS feeds for its sub-forums.

I need a way to select multiple forum feeds for broadcast to twitter, but NOT have to show all of the forums on the site, since all other forums are used for general discussion.

Thanks,

Sorry for the off topic here, but I am running 3.8.2 with RSS enabled. That part works, but no matter what I do, I cannot get twitterfeed to "parse the RSS URL". It refuses, no matter whether I use;

http://www.amiga.org/forums/external.php?f=38&type=rss
http://www.amiga.org/forums/external.php?f=38&type=rss2
http://www.amiga.org/forums/external.php?f=38&type=xml

or even

http://www.amiga.org/forums/external.php

Says something about "netscape stopped supporting this DTD in 2007" when I use RSS, otherwise, gives no ideas WHY it won't validate.

If I can't submit multiples through the request above this one, I sure would appreciate some help trying to figure out why twitterfeed hates me :)

I do have another question.....right now the cron job runs once a minute on my site....but it will only post 1 story per minute. There are times on my site that we may break multiple NFL news stories in that time span (we have a staff of news hounds). Is there a way for this modification to make sure it posts ALL missing stories in that minute span?

FYI....I am using the twitask.php file that gordietbh posted on page four of this thread.

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

just after the lines fixing the CDATA-issue. Now, all Umlaute and special characters will be submitted to Twitter. Just if it helps someone else too

Welche Datei und welche Zeile?
Ja die Umlaute sind wohl das Problem.

You will also need to set the refresh time on your RSS feed in vboptions to 0 if you want to ensure that every new thread is updated to your twitted feed. If the refresh time is 60 minutes you will only have the latest thread submitted every hour when the RSS cache is refreshed.

Do you mean the Cache Lifespan? I didn't see a refresh... :confused:

My RSS feed is correct: http://flotgaming.net/forums/external.php?f=43

If I run the task manually, I get the error: Error: RSS file not found, dude

Any fix for this?

I moved to a new box and all the setting are completely the same. However, I am now also getting the same error message.

SBlueman 19 Jun 2009 02:32

Is this modification now dead? Is there anyone who can help solve the issues people are having?

SBlueman 19 Jun 2009 04:25

BTW, it looks like this modification is a re-write of some sorts of this open source modification:

http://paulstamatiou.com/stammy-scri...tter-using-php

Don't know if that helps out to any of the php-saavy people out there who might be using this modification and would be willing to help us in need.

SBlueman 20 Jun 2009 12:02

This is now beyond frustrating....this was the perfect modification for my site's needs and now it has stopped working out of the blue and the mod author is completely AWOL even though this is marked as a supported modification.

SBlueman 23 Jun 2009 10:18

No support....

***uninstalled***

Ja, aber ich schreib trotzdem in Englisch, fr die anderen ;-)
Just write on line 24, of twitask.php, just where the error message of the add-on occures:
Quote:

} else { die('Error: RSS file not found, dude.'); }

$title = str_replace("<![CDATA[", "", "$title");
$title = str_replace("]]>", "", "$title");
$title = str_replace("&", "and", "$title");

$title = utf8_encode ($title); //for the bloody umlaute

there are several mods that do this but much better.. This one (vBulletin Tweet Poster!) will even link back to your site as the source link :up:
and it works prefect ;)

SomeDude-GP 24 Sep 2009 17:11

rss not found.. DUDE

TurkeySub 25 Oct 2009 05:31

Hi,

Any chance you might consider adding the ability to monitor multiple RSS feeds? Reason being, I have news posted in various sections on the site and not all in one and having the ability to track multiple would be awesome!

Every time I click the tiny URL that linked to my forum thread it shows me an error message.

"No Thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator"

Can someone help me with this? Thanks before...

Just Installed Works great thanks a bunch :)

I get RSS file not found even though I am pointed properly to my external.php and have supplied a correct forumid on ?f=

sailnet 19 Nov 2009 19:37

this mod totally sucks. the vb people should remove the thread.

the problem with the other tweet posted is that is requires 5.2 and that sucks too

I'll jyst be satisfied with letting people post tweet individual posts for now until someone comes along with a reliable tweet poster that doesn't require everything and the kitchen sink too.

vietdjclub 06 Jan 2010 00:27

it's working fine on vbb4

BBR-APBT 18 Jan 2010 08:38

Seems to post over and over on vB 4.0.1

Reverted to twitterfeed.com

Any reason why the cron runs every minute? It was making my server crawl because the cron is set to run every minute. Can there be an option for this in a future release?
