vBTwitter 1.0.4

No permission to download
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.

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:



PHP Code:

define('SHOWPOST', true);
Change that line to this:



PHP Code:

define('SHOWPOST', false);

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!
