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

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!

^Whatever folder your forum files are in. So if a file was in 'upload/admin', you'd upload it to the forum admin folder, etc.

The last part in the directions regarding the tp.php file is that for 3.5 users or something that needs to be done? I'm not getting "tweet this post" to show up

There's an application signup question that your instructions don't mention :

Use Twitter for login: [ ] Yes, use Twitter for login


...so I'm not checking that box for now. Hopefully that's what I'm supposed to do.

Yes, please leave that unchecked. I am not sure what that can do to your board, since no support has been coded.

There is unreleased experimental code. I have restructured my release goals, with the hopes of a faster release.

I can't get posts from my forum to show up as tweets on my twitter site.

On the Connections Tab in my Twitter Profile Settings I see a "No applications have been approved to use your account." message but I can see the application settings when I go to http://twitter.com/apps.

Any ideas on why my posts won't show up? I got the keys and put them into my vBulletin admin settings.

EDIT: Got it to work. Had to edit my User CP options and set it up to allow access.

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

That should be in bold print and underlined lol....in order to make this mod work, make sure to do this....:P
