Social Media Feather
[resolved] Add Twitter Handle (3 posts)

    I want people to include my twitter handle when they click the share button on a blog post.

    For example, instead of just "Post Title http://shortlink.com" I want the tweets to be "Post Title http://shortlink.com via @TwitterHandle."

    That's a pretty standard feature in other social media plugins, but I can't seem to get it working on this one. I've tried adding it to the text portion of the Twitter sharing link, but sometimes it leaves it out entirely and sometimes it puts it in but strips the spacing.

    How would I go about that?

    Thanks!

    If it's in the text than it shouldn't strip it, maybe you're using some kind of caching plugin? Remember to clear the cache once you change the settings then. If it removes the space maybe some other plugin is doing some escaping on the URLs? Try writing %20 instead of the space character.

    No caching plugins being used. But the %20 solution worked. Thanks a lot! :)
