Ability to embed tweets
Tue Jun 10, 2014 1:34 pm
  • With twitter becoming the goto source for breaking NFL news. The ability to embed tweets would look nicer then people copying them and posting them on the forums.

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Hey <a href="https://twitter.com/RSherman_25">@RSherman_25</a>, does this Madden NFL 15 cover suffice? &#10;&#10;<a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23MockCover&amp;src=hash">#MockCover</a>&#10;<a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23LegionofBoom&amp;src=hash">#LegionofBoom</a> <a href="http://t.co/Yb9WrbFgHU">pic.twitter.com/Yb9WrbFgHU</a></p>&mdash; NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) <a href="https://twitter.com/ESPNNFL/statuses/476476444189528064">June 10, 2014</a></blockquote>
    <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


    This is the standard embed option from twitter. Dont kow exactly if this would be needed, or an addition to the api that allows just posting the twitter link.

  • PHPBB supports the
    Code: Select all
    [tweet][/tweet]
    tag, but the forum has been modified quite a bit and it may not be easy to implement. *Shrugs and looks questioningly at Anguish*

  • In reality, phpBB supports bbCode, which enables it to support any sort of custom HTML rewrite assuming it fits a particular set of rewrite rules. That gives it the ability to support a tag such as
    Code: Select all
    [tweet][/tweet]


    So it's certainly possible, just have to spend the time working on the rewrite and embed...

  • This works, pretty simple actually, pass the word:
    Code: Select all
    [tweet]https://twitter.com/RSherman_25/status/486559240392540160[/tweet]

  • To be honest, Cartire had already PMed me about it a while back, so i had initially looked at what it was going to require. This little reminder came at the right time, when I had 10 minutes of spare time.
