Tweet only a certain category from wordpress entries... (7 posts)

    I am currently using a the Tweetable plugin to auto-tweet my blog posts to my Twitter account as updates - my question is can I somehow tweak Tweetable so that it will take new posts only from categories I specify and tweet them and and not just any new post from my blog? I checked several other plugins including Twitter Tools, and seems like there's no such option... Is it possible to tweak the plugin or any suggestions?

    Thank you in advance.

    Thank you for the suggestion. It might make it into one of the next couple Tweetable releases as an option...

    It's on my to-do list... I'm quite busy, so I haven't had the time to work on things I don't really get paid to do. :)

    I think I might be able to have it into the plugin in a couple weeks or so.

    You can use a service like TwitterFeed and feed in a category's RSS feed in the time being.

    A small hack, until the next version comes out..

    Around line 260, add this line...

    if (in_category (XX, $post) ){

    before

    if ($post->post_status == 'private' || $post->post_type == 'page')
    {return;}

    and then, around line 290,
    add an extra

    }

    after

    $update = $twitter->update_status($tweet, $user_key, $user_key_secret);

    Replace XX with the category id, name or slug. Read this for more details.
