Ok, maybe I'm still missing something. I just used the "Like" button on my site, and while it did post to my wall, it seems to be only visible if you click on my Profile link and not on the "News Feed" page. Is this correct, and if so, can it be changed so it does show on the new feed?

It shows, but it lists it under your Recent Activity, not as your current status. Don't think there is any way to change that, that I've seen anyways.

Hmmm, because it's not going to be seen unless someone checks the profile section. Just trying to find ways to easily get my site and in the near future SITES more exposure via that link, which is still awesome.

(Almost dumb question, but I have to ask.)

Are all other forums tweets supposed to come to us via @Mindraven?

Have you filled in your Twitter Account on the control panel preferences? It should come up as via @yourtwitteraccount

If it's coming up like that, that means the twitter account hasn't been filled in so it uses the default (mindraven instead of via @twitterapi).

When I enter the name of my site, The RV Lovers Home, all Twitter is picking up on is the first word, which doesn't go to my site at all. The link does, but not the site name.

Ok, I know the problem. My twitter account is for another web site and while this posts to that twitter account it won't render the correct site name/url even though the link is correct. Have to look into a different twitter account for this web site. However, it will work great with my other site when I convert.

So you can see how many people are tweeting topics and so it also follows the accepted standard etiquette for retweeting.

As an aside, I wouldn't use your personal twitter account for this. Create a twitter account specifically for your site/forum. And better yet, use this new account to tweet all new topics (create a RSS feed fand import it into Google Feedburner so you may use their tweet new posts option.) Shooting the new topics into twitter has helped me generate a lot more traffic and many new users since I started doing this early this year.

Example: http://twitter.com/bowlingfans

yes, i HIGHLY recommend using Feedburner for feeds as well..

this allows you to track all kinds of stats too in google..

you can even add adverts to the feeds as well.. wink

Just "tweeted"/"FaceBooked" a status and noticed that the URL being used isn't the URL type I've selected in the CP...

It's using the old/non se friendly urls; for the sake of conformity, it should follow what we've selected we want to use, no?

URL Being Linked: http://www.undergroundnews.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=51604
URL Being Linked From: http://www.undergroundnews.com/foru...rum%20Upgrade%20-%207.5.6.html#Post51604

Also, the coding thrown into the files should follow the same coding conventions, ie using two tabs vs random spacing, etc; the twitter/fb code just looks like it was quickly thrown together...

Would also like to see the ability (with FaceBook) to:
Choose Light/Dark
Choose to show Pictures vs Links (see here for example)

I already have my FB/Twitter accounts sync'd, and have them setup using RSS Graffiti to cross post each other, but integrating our forum would be sweet!

I've been using twitterfeed.com to post to my fb/twitter accounts from the rss feed from our news forum.

It doesn't create topics on your forum. You use your RSS feeds and Feedburner (or other similar services) to promote new topics (and/or replies) on Twitter.

The added plus with using Feedburner is it will help get the new posts indexed in Google much faster and also show up in google's twitter search results.

Upgrade my testing site from 7.5.5 to 7.5.6 worked great. I will be upgrading the real site after the move is complete. Great job Rick and company!

Ahhh, I see! I had it backwards (unfortunately!)...I do the same thing manually now, never thought of automating it.

There is an RSS Content Creator over at UBBDev, I use it on UGN to syndicate news from CNN's Tech pages.

I took a peek...very interesting! Something else for me to find a use for! LOL!!

Question, though: is there a *tidy* way to post RSS info-->my forum, in a specific thread?

E.g., we have a big car show/event coming up... using my smartphone while at the event I had planned on posting info/pictures to our club's Twitter account, which will bounce it to our club's Facebook page also via RSS...it would be slick if the "RSS creator" could simply add it to an ongoing thread. Am I asking too much?

Well, the rss content creator takes an RSS/xml feed and posts the description as the content and the title as the subject

I should have said "RSS info-->my forum, into a continuous thread"...that is, all my Tweets from the "Supercar Reunion 13" go into a single "Supercar Reunion 13" thread.

I can't think of a way this could possibly work, because it has no way to pull the current thread info from you site for you to select...????

Easiest way would be to just throw up a temporary sub-forum and setup the RSS info from there.

Because it's what the API allowed at the time I guess

does that mean we can do it later maybe? or is this API more related to what facebook allows than what UBB can be programmed to do?

a share button and a like button are very similar API wise.. so you could either modify the tpl to have both or swap in the sharer.php instead

The '0' box next to the Tweet button...

I'm assuming it should increment with each Tweet?
(Mine doesn't.)

I have entered my account name into the admin panel.

The '0' box next to the Tweet button...

I'm assuming it should increment with each Tweet?
(Mine doesn't.)

I have entered my account name into the admin panel.

Something I noticed and had to change when setting it up yesterday: leave off the "@" from your account name...I entered mine as "@yenkoclub", and noticed that it was going through as "@@yenkoclub". Probably pretty obvious to most, but it took my typical 2 tries to get it...with that said, my Tweet counter isn't changing either.

How come the facebook link only has like and not share?


This statement found on Facebook Developer might have something to do with it:

We don't recommend the Share button for new developers. If you aren't already using the Share button, we recommend you use the Like button and Open Graph protocol instead of Share for sharing pages from your website. The Like button is simpler to user and is the recommended solution moving forward.

Like when FB dropped the "Fan" button, it looks like they're moving everything over to "Like"...

Eg. I just hit the "Tweet" button on a thread on my forum...the "Share this" box pops up, and it displays:

Gobi Yenko Deuce finds its way to EBaY - The Supercar Registry Bulletin Board http://t.co/qRFBGHk via @yenkoclub

When I entered my account name as "@yenkoclub" in the CP it added an extra @ to the share box info [@@yenkoclub].

Yeah, I'm with you. Mine does the same - but the '0' box just doesn't reflect the number of tweets frown
