WP Quote Tweets

Allows authors to quote Twitter updates in posts or pages using a simple shortcode. [quotetweet tweetid=123456789].

So, how do I use it?

Example: [quotetweet tweetid=1234567890]

The tweetid can be found in the URL of the tweet that is to be quoted.

For example, you can quote the following tweet:


Its tweetid is 2208284083; making the shortcode look like this:

[quotetweet tweetid=2208284083]

Alternative notations are [quotetweet xxx] or [qtweet xxx] where xxx is the tweetid.

If the tweet isn't showing up, something went wrong. Also keep in mind that this only works with public tweet. Private tweets can't be made public with this plugin.

How can I change the style/theme of the tweets?

The current version includes a number of templates to select from. Go to your admin panel and select "WP Quote Tweets" under Settings to select a template from the list.

If you've created your own custom templates put them in a "wpqt" folder in your theme's folder (example: /wp-content/themes/yourCurrentTheme/wpqt/MyCustomTweetTheme/) and you'll be able to select them from the settings screen.

To learn more about how to create your own template read the templating documentation.
