Scott threw the facebook like button, so I'll see if he has time to do the tweetie thingy.

Ok, Scott uses tweetmeme so he can quickly sneak that in.

cool -- is it tied to the original TOPIC url (1st post) and not the current URL (paging, specific post) ?

not a biggie, because the basics are there anyway. i'd assume some peeps would alter the FB include to different button types etc..

same for the tweetmeme look too.

great stuff! smile

Like the Facebook option smile That could drum up members for our board. What about fixing the Black and Gold skin under Chrome? grin

It is tied to the first post & the title of the shared link is the original topic subject.

I've actually changed from using tweetmeme to the twitter button. It's more consistent with the facebook button. Meaning, both have the counter on the right side of the button.

Looks like we just need to put in an option to change the suggested user to follow, after you submit a tweet, so that can be changed in the config file and we should be good.

Okay is this a problem related to 7.5.6?
I see a recent post in the ubb6 forum.
https://www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ub...n_you_create_modificatio.html#Post238727
By Rick.
When I select it I get a error that there is a problem.
"There was a problem looking up this post in our database. "
Or is this a index issue with something deleted?

Shouldn't the "Like" button be on the category pages and the forum index? I mean, I should be able to like the forum altogether! lol

We'll have more options in for version 8. Don't want to spend any more time on the current version, as getting version 8 out is still our primary goal wink

Did that and tried the Twitter and boy did it work well! What about the Facebook link, is it supposed to just show you like it or is it supposed to be able to be linked to the posters Facebook page?

I haven't done the upgrade yet, but that raises a question: can FB part be configured to like/post/whatever to a managed page vs. my personal page?

I've been looking for that myself, and I'm not too sure at this point, but haven't found anything yet.

This is controlled by facebook, but you can alter the showflat template and request the dark scheme I believe. Line 142 of templates/default/showflat.tpl you'll see the line that generates the facebook button. On that line you'll see ...colorschema=light&... Change the light to dark

I notice that it's following my trail around the forum. I take it that it's checking Fakebook whenever a topic is viewed to see if registers a match?

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.

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!

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.

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.

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].

Odd...I hit the "0" next to the Tweet box and it opened a window to Twitter but gave me a "no real time results" message...went back to the thread I had Tweeted, and it now displays "1"...did a refresh, and it went back to "0"...! tongue

I just looked at mine and the Tweets are not showing, even though right after "Tweeting" it showed 1 on each post I Tweeted.

Well, not meaning to be disrespectful of Rick's hard work but after a few days of trying this I've decided to disable it and go back to having my addthis.com buttons displayed in the post. At least this way I can keep track of its usage throughout the whole site.

Sorry Rick. blush

I'm sure this is just an oversight that may be quickly remedied.

Even if the counter doesn't work, it saves me a step or two, as I was doing the same thing manually before...so it's still a step forward!

Looking into this now. I've seen a few bug reports with counts not incrementing with the new tweet api button.

If you can assist, please tweet this topic: http://www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/238823

Then post here if you do so we can get an idea of how many tweets there have been and do a bit of debugging. We've added a couple parameters they suggest such as the tweet-counturl, so we'll see if that has any effect.

Just something I noticed, and it may be correct, but when you hit the Tweet number it opens the following url:

twitter.com/#search?q=http%3A//www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ubbthreads.php%3Fubb%3Dshowflat%26Number%3D238823 OR http%3A//www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ubbthreads.php

The "OR" in the middle + the 2 url's look odd...and then you get "No real-time results for...[above url]?

Ok, I know there is a cache they work with and there is no set time that it updates. So will be keeping an eye on it.

So apparently, the api has some issues with items that can have multiple pages and different urls to each page, even when the url is forced to the main topic/post. Seems like that is why most that have this already only have it on the main forum page and not on individual topics.

Not sure if they will expand on this to allow for cases like forums, but I've inquired.

About line 137 of templates/default/showflat.tpl you'll see the line for the tweet button:

Code

<a href="http://twitter.com/share?url={$facebookURL}&amp;via={$config.YOUR_TWITTER}" class="twitter-share-button" data-related="Mindraven">Tweet</a>



Change that to:

Code

<a href="http://twitter.com/share?url={$facebookURL}&amp;via={$config.YOUR_TWITTER}" class="twitter-share-button" data-related="Mindraven" data-count="none">Tweet</a>

I don't know if it's been reported, but the Facebook "Like" button seems to be broken. It's not working here or on my 2 sites...Hmmm. Tweet seems to still be working.

How about in "Control Panel/Display Options/Topic Display Options/Your Twitter Account". You just input your Twitter account name and it will then show up as being "Tweeted" from your forum.

@ gliderdad that worked perfectly. I modified it to our twitter account. Maybe the option to recommend users to follow should be added in the next version.

@ GregK, the page I was referring to is the one that is after you tweet a page. It is in the pop-up window. Thanks

In the latest update (7.5.6pl), which files are changed? In the install/UPGRADE_changes.txt are the same files noted as in version 7.5.6. Could you please give a list of updated files because I have a large number of files that are modded, and I don't want to edit/mod them all again.

That's what I downloaded originally.

If you download the patch: ubbthreads-7-5-5p1 you will see the changed files. smile

Well, I'm assuming that's correct as it is the latest patch available.


Edit: I just noticed that the file dates in the 7-5-5p1 folder are dated 23 sept - so I guess it's the correct file to use.

Strike that - whatever files are downloaded - they get stamped with todays date - don't they?

Shouldn't the patch be renamed to 7-5-6p1 ?


there is a ubbthreads-7-5-6p1 there in the list in the members area download -- the order on the right is kinda not ordered with most recent version on top..

so the patch is 4th down

maybe Brooks can reorder?

Stan, I would open a ticket at mindraven and ask Rick what to do.
Also I would ask him about fixing your access at ubb member area.

Yes they do. The list has been reordered to display 7.5.6pl1 at the top.

I see the tweet button here above the quick reply box. I don't see the fb like button though. Am I just overlooking it? (Wouldn't be the first time I missed something staring me in the face! smirk)
