Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Plugin

Tags

Adds a button which easily lets you retweet your blog posts. A port of the official TweetMeme Wordpress plugin.

Installation:
Requires curl and jQuery for the Control Panel. You must install the extension. The plugin is optional.

Extension Usage:
This addon can adds a tag to your weblog entries loop which displays the tweetmeme retweet button.

{exp:weblog:entries weblog="weblog"}
{tweetmeme}
{/exp:weblog:entries}

Your default parameters are stored in the extension settings. You may override your set defaults with tag parameters, like so:

{exp:weblog:entries weblog="weblog"}
{tweetmeme type="compact" style="border:10px solid red;"}
{/exp:weblog:entries}

In the extension settings, you can specify a “site path” for each of your weblogs, which is a path to your single-entry template. This will enable the extension to “know” the entry’s URL.

If you don’t specify a site path for your weblog in the extension settings, you must specify one of the “path” parameters (either url, entry_id_path, url_title_path, title_permalink, or path) in the tag parameters. Also, if you do not specify a site path for your weblog, you will not be able to track your stats in the control panel.

{exp:weblog:entries weblog="weblog"}
{tweetmeme entry_id_path="site/view"}
{/exp:weblog:entries}


Plugin Usage:
You can also use as a standalone plugin, outside of a weblog:entries loop like this:
{exp:tweetmeme path=“site/index”}

If you are using the standalone plugin, you must specify an entry_id if you want to be able to use the entry_id_path, url_title_path or title_permalink
parameters.
{exp:tweetmeme entry_id=”{segment_3}” url_title_path=“site/view”}


Parameters:
path - a site path, eg {exp:tweetmeme path=“site/about”}
entry_id_path - a path to be appended by the entry_id, e.g. {tweetmeme entry_id_path=“site/view” entry_id=”{segment_3}”}
url_title_path - a path to be appended by the url_title, e.g. {tweetmeme url_title_path=“site/view” entry_id=”{segment_3}”}
title_permalink - an alias of url_title_path
url - a full url, e.g. {exp:tweetmeme url=“http://whatevs.com”}
style (optional) - style for the button-containing div
type (optional) - ‘compact’ or ‘large’, default is compact
source (optional) - your twitter username, will show up as RT @username
url_shortener (optional) - choose a url shortening service
api_key (optional) - awe.sm requires an api key
spaces (optional) - spaces to leave at end of tweet
hashtags (optional) - comma separated list of topics to add to the tweet, you can use a custom field here, e.g. {tweetmeme hashtags=“ee,tweetmeme”} or {tweetmeme hashtags=”{my_tags}”}
