Mod Version: 1.0.4, by King Kovifor (Coder) King Kovifor is offline
Developer Last Online: Aug 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (32 votes - 4.22 average) Installs: 400
Released: 09 Feb 2009 Last Update: 14 Jul 2009 Downloads: 1905
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

Description

This modification adds basic Twitter integration to vBulletin. Once a user defines their Twitter username & password within their vB Options (User CP -> Edit Options), the Tweet This X links will appear.

It automatically adds a tweet to their account with the default text of "Check this out! " (which can be edited editing the "twitter_checkout" phrase) and uses your forum URL with either tp or tt.php as the link. These redirect to the thread / post that was tweeted.

  2. Install product file.
  3. Register an OAuth Application here, using:
  4. Click Install on vB.org
  5. Tell Your users.
  6. Enjoy
Upgrading to v1.0.4
  • Upload all files, overwrite everything.

      Add After:

Requirements

THIS MODIFICATION REQUIRES PHP 5 DUE TO THE CLASS THAT IS USED!

PHP'S CURL EXTENSION IS ALSO USED! THE API CALLS ARE COMPLETELY DEPENDENT ON THEM!


This modification should work on vBulletin v3.5+, but was only tested on a vB 3.8 install.

Using the "tp.php" switch added in v1.0.2

With the release of v1.0.2, a switch between showpost.php?p=ID&postcount=COUNT and showthread.php?p=ID#postID has been added. Using it is simple, but requires a code edit (Note: This is a SUPPORTED code edit!). Open up tp.php and find this line:


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

Change that line to this:


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


This will automatically trigger the change any time it is loaded. This works retroactively and any links will automatically use the new settings once changed!

I checked everything and all of the files are in place and the plugin is showing active in the plugin manager and I even put in the manual template edits but still nothing.

I still have no VBtwitter in the adminCP except in the plugin manager, and yes it shows active and I still have nothing in any of the threads or thread tools.

TOTALLY WIERD!! I may have to uninstall and I don't want to!!

What am I doing wrong ??

Thanks in advance
This is a rare occurrence that I have no idea how to fix, for the fact that I have taken a file sent to me from someone receiving this, and it worked perfectly. I also cleaned the file up and verified the checking.

I check with my host server and I do have the requird PHP software you mentiooned on my server.
You need to add your details in the User CP.

BTW the file is in the folder and it the correct folder is image/buttons not images/misc

I do not see it on my site. Where is is suppose to appear?
Did you add your detailes in the User CP? If so, it should appear in the "Thread Tools" and Next to "#X" in posts.

*shrug* I know King knows this... So if he doesn't have the time or thinks it will take more then 1 more month I really wish he would let us know.

A lot of Mod devs have a schedule so people know when beta, alphas, and stable releases will be available.
Yes, a lot of mod developers do have schedules, when that is their only problem. With me paying for a car; school; and a job, my life hasn't had time to focus on anything. I am not sure what ragtek has done, but several facets that many have asked for are already implemented, just not for anyone to use yet. What I don't get is the fact that everyone believes that I should dedicate all my free time to developing this and my other modifications, when I do this for free, as a hobby. That alone should mean that I shouldn't be placed into a schedule that you all expect. My schedule will and always will be "when it is done" as that gives you the best possible product -- with minimal bugs. Now if I sounded harsh, I just spent this entire day working and doing homework, and in my ten minutes of spare time, I come on here to support this.

I had that same problem:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' ect ect
I found my server was running php 4, so i installed php 5+ on my server, now the app works fine, so anyone further with this problem, log into your admin CP, check your php version, as OP said, must be 5+. Hope this helps to any noobs so you don't have to go searching 27 pages worth of stuff.

That has usually been indicative of not having mcrypt.

After importing the product and uploading the files, there is no reference to vBTwitter in my admin or user cp.

I just want to say thanks for the great mod. This mod can certainly be improved as I am sure you are more aware of than any of the users of it, but this is a great tool and the vborg community is lucky to have developers willing to take a look at the newer trends of social networking to let their forums integrate popular services like this that their users use massively.

Once again, thanks.

You'll don't see anything in the acp, only in the usercp(options) and ONLY if you have template_hook[usercp_options_other] in your style!

Have you a custom style? If yes, pls check if you have template_hooks!
If not, contant the stylecreater(i hope thats the right word)
