Title: Automatic Twitter Embedding
Post by: dimspace on February 07, 2014, 10:49:00 AM
Just a quick tip that enables automatic tweet embedding.

Via Embedtweet.com

in display template

find
Code: [Select]
function template_main()
{

Add after
Code: [Select]
echo '
<script language="javascript" src="http://embedtweet.com/javascripts/embed_v2.js"></script>';

Works a charm.

You can also customise it yourself using the original js files
JS > http://embedtweet.com/javascripts/embed_v2.js
CSS > http://embedtweet.com/stylesheets/embed_v2.css

In the js file you will obviously have to change the path of the css.

Thnx man!

First i paste the embed code and think.. What the F#^@^@%@^@
But you only need the normal url.

thnx for this tip

Edit i found a bug :D
If you use this, its fine. But if somebody quote the message with the tweet, the post will be empty, and the post with tweet is now a pst with 2 tweets :D

Pretty nice!! I wish to have some time to work on the CSS of it... But the default is pretty cool too.

Thanks.

Sadly embedtweet appears to be more. We discovered the issue and its in relation to overloading twitter with API calls means you get blocked on a busy forum.

We at VR have figured out a solution which is in three parts.

A JS file that does the basics
A Json file that does the parsing of the tweet
And a database entry that stores the tweets to save repeated calls to twitter
And then a single line in display.template to pull it.

waiting to see if my codewriter gives permissions to put out :D

We have supplied the code and put it in mod requests so someone is free to develop it further as a modification
