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.

Umlaute and other special characters

I added the following code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
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

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

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.

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.

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.

Ja, aber ich schreib trotzdem in Englisch, für die anderen ;-)
Just write on line 24, of twitask.php, just where the error message of the add-on occures:
} 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
and it works prefect
