Embedding Tweets?
Is there any chance of having a widget or whatever installed that can allow a Twitter url to be pasted in that will appear as afull tweet on the screen, the way we can with a YouTube? I've seen it done in newspaper online reports so wonder if the work's been done on Elkarte.

Somebody created a mod, but didn't test it at all.  I broke a test version of this site trying the mod out a few months ago.

To test it out again, I'll have to install a new test version using the most recent version of Elkarte (we're one version behind).

And to install it I'll have to upgrade the production forum (this one) to the latest version of Elkarte.

All doable, but I'll want to ask osmanthus to be around for it.

OK so how does this new function work? Or does the board parse tweet links automatically?

They are parsed automatically as long as they don't have social media tracking stuff at the end of the link.

I don't even use Twitter but I appreciate being able to see the tweets here rather than following the links.

And maybe make it understand that https:mobile.twit is a communist plot not of our doing and learn how to parse it.

I always have to remember to edit it after the fact

Haven't run into that one yet (I rarely browse on mobile). So are you saying it does this on a phone?

Yep. The script works fine if you edit out the mobile. bit. It's a sneaky one as of course you don't realise it has redirected you to the mobile site till you are wondering why your post didn't work.

Here we go. Code: http://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php?topic=2937.msg31314#msg31314

I'll test that on local later today. If it works, we can chuck it in the file here.
