better twitter share?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone knew a way of making or editing the current share to twitter so that it included the product title and maybe a custom bit of text or hashtag...


At the moment the share to twitter just fills in a link


I have edited /includes/modules/social_bookmarks/sb_twitter.php



return '<a href="http://twitter.com/home?status=' . urlencode(tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'], 'NONSSL', false)) . '%20%23hello' . '" target="_blank"><img src="' . DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'social_bookmarks/' . $this->icon . '" border="0" title="' . tep_output_string_protected($this->public_title) . '" alt="' . tep_output_string_protected($this->public_title) . '" /></a>';


It now makes a tweet like this



Now I want it to auto fill in the product name/title... but im a noob and dont know what to do LOL...


Help please?!

It's called Twitter Cards.

No offence but I could hire a someone to write the script needed for £10 its only a tiny amount of editing and someone who knows php can do it eyes closed in a few seconds, if you think I am going to pay $299.99 then you are mistaken...

To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.

Why not hire someone for a tenner and get it written. Easy :)


For now, my testing is going well, and I expect to have something available for 2.3.4 / 2.4
