Tweet Button for Quotes

Description

This is a 100% free plugin that serves one single purpose: let people Tweet your quotes.

By adding a Tweet button beside your awesome quotes in your articles, you’re making it easier for your readers to spread the word about your article.

Tweet quotes makes sharing more convenient. And the resulting Tweet contains more substance because it also contains the quote you placed while also linking back to your article.

Is this plugin for me?

If you have blog posts and want some marketing performed by your readers, then this plugin is for you.

Usage

Add the shortcode [tweetquote] at the end of your blockquote tag. No need to put anything else. For example:

<blockquote>You can Tweet this [tweetquote]</blockquote>

Or, add your text quote inside the shortcode [tweetquote] to show a blockquote. For example:

[tweetquote]You can Tweet this[/tweetquote]

You’ll end up with a quote with a Tweet button on the corner that your visitors can use to share your quote.

Where can I set the “via @handle”?

If you have Yoast SEO installed, fill up the your user’s Twitter field in Users > Your Profile.

Or you can just fill up the via and related attributes in the shortcode.

If you want to get rid of the “via @handle”, set the attribute value to false.

Do you have quote templates?

Nope! We just use what your site/theme already has. This is so that we can be as bloat-free and future-proof as possible.

All [tweetquote] shortcode attributes are optional.

  • text – The text to be shared. This defaults to the content of the blockquote the shortcode is placed in.
  • url – The url to Tweet about. This defaults to the current post url.
  • align – The button alignment, can be left, center or right. Defaults to right.
  • via – The “via @handle” part of the Tweet, good for branding. Defaults to the post author’s Twitter handle from Yoast SEO. Put false to disable.
  • related – An account related to the text being shared. Defaults to the post author’s Twitter handle from Yoast SEO. Put false to disable.
  • label – The label of the Tweet button. Defaults to Tweet.
