Twitter Tools

Step by step guide

Step 2: Adding Twitter social plugins to the website.

  • From the navigation bar on the top select Components >Twitter Tools.
  • On the upper right hand of the screen click on the New button.

2.1 Adding a Tweet Button

The Tweet Button is a small widget which allows users to easily share your website with their followers.

2.1.1 Title. Specify a title for the plugin for identifying the plugin in the back-end.
2.1.2 Publish. Choose whether to publish the plugin or not.
2.1.3 Via User. Specify the screen name of the user to which the tweet will be attributed to.
2.1.4 Tweet Text. Type in the tweet text. If you leave it blank, it will automatically use the page title.
2.1.5 Type of URL. Choose the URL of the page to share. You can either use the current page URL or provide another URL manually.
2.1.6 URL to Tweet. Provide the URL to share with the tweet.
2.1.7 URL to which your shared URL resolves. Specify the URL of the page which will be associated with the tweet. It will not be visible as a link but will be counted in the count box and will return all the tweets when the link is searched. E.g. you can provide URL to the homepage of your website.
2.1.8 Hashtag. Specify hashtags for your tweet. You can use multiple hashtags separating them with commas.
2.1.9 Button Size. Choose the button size from the provided default options.
2.1.10 Count Box Position. Choose whether to use a count box next to the Tweet button as well as its positioning between horizontal and vertical options. Count Box states the number of the mentions for the resolved URL.
