When a visitor views a post, they see a tweet button. Currently the a herf of the button is set to
<a href="http://twitter.com/home?status=<?php the_title(); ?> via @sometwitterid <?php echo get_permalink(); ?>" target="_blank" class="tweet">
What I would like to do, is have a custom field setup and the value of that field to populate the output of the a href from above “Title via @sometwitterid http://www.link.com/title“
This way we can change what the a href looks like before we publish the post, to add hashtags or change the title, add another @twitterid.
I’m looking for the proper way to do this:
<?php $tweet = 'http://twitter.com/home?status=<?php the_title(); ?> via @sometwitterid <?php echo get_permalink(); ?>
Then I should be able to set $customfield = $tweet and it should populate in the custom field box in the editor.
Will this work? What’s the proper way to html/php a link? I read the php docs but haven’t figured it out.
