NWS Twitter Goodies

Sorry for not giving answears and not updating this package, I do not have time at the moment.
If anyone would like to conribute or continue work on it, please contact me.

Just a simple wrapper around some of the Twitter Widgets and buttons
See http://twitter.com/about/resources

The plugins in this package are:

  • Follow Buttons
  • Tweet button
  • Profile widget
  • Search widget
  • List widget
  • Favos widget

A new version of 2.0 is uploaded, the package was missing a javascript file that was used for setting the color properties, and it did not work to edit the macro.

Insert the macro in a template or in RTE, fill out the properties, for info on properties go to the Twitter widget page.

The macro need to be within a form runat="server" or else the script include will not register.
If you do not want that you can place the script include in your template manually
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://widgets.twimg.com/j/2/widget.js"></script>

Version 2.0:
A sepcial syntac for the search plugin added, so you can pick more than one macroparameter. Use {[#pageName] and [$MyRecursiveProtpery]} (see http://our.umbraco.org/projects/collaboration/nws-twitter-goodies/bug-reports-and-feedback-/15430-Passing-Multiple-Properties for more info on this)
Behind the scenes it is now using MSBuild and ILMerge to handle package build, thanks for inspiration Matt Brailsford (http://blog.mattbrailsford.com/).

Version 1.0:
Initial release.

The 2.0 version should work in both 3.5 and 4.0 build. Tested on Umbraco 4.5 (no XSLT used).
