Go to the options menu and click on 'Twitter Options'
Enter your Twitter email and password and click 'Configure'
When posting a photo at the current time, click the 'Twitter this photo' checkbox - don't use this option for future posts

Your instructions say to use your "twitter email." Do you mean twitter username? I suppose I could just try it and find out, but I wanted to make sure.

Use the email that is associated with your twitter account - not the user name.

Hi, i use your plugin vor some time now, but is it possible to change the text of the twittermessage or to ad something like "New Post on my Blog -Title of image- Link " or something similar?

You can edit the addon - look for line 98 and 102 where you can change the twittermessage variable.

Hi, is there a way I can have it AUTOMATICALLY twitter the photo? I want it to post immediately after I post my photo.

Check the "twitter photo on upload" checkbox when you upload the photo.

I'm using my POP3 Post add on, so I email my photos and they are uploaded. I want them to be automatically be posted.

Hello, I followd install instructions all went well except the post pointed to my admin page of myphp. do i need to have a subdomain created to point to my main domain for this to work? or do i need to install my admin in another directory?

Hi, kevin. I like so this addon. It can post to my twitter. But the link to my photo was broken.
However, I post to my twitter from PixelPost that is working my local server. The link is perfect. Do you understand what the problem?

perhaps you don't have the full url(including the trailing slash) in your admin panel?

Oh I'm sorry. I was wrong.
The subdomain was used for url. The problem was solved. Thank you, for wonderful addon.

Great addon! I have only recently started using Twitter, but have already found this addon usefull. A few things I would like to change though;
Instead of how it is at the moment;
ImageName - Message - Imagelink
I would like;
Message - Imagename - url
Or more ideally;
Message - Imagename(with url link to image)
So for example;
New Image - <a href="http://www.afowler.co.uk/gallery/index.php?showimage=548">Westerly Glow</a>
Is this possible?
05-20-2009, 09:20 PM
The last option is not possible with Twitter.
05-20-2009, 09:38 PM
How about the second option? I tried moving the code around near line line 98 and 102, but couldn't get it working.

The part you want to look at is line 85.
