[Resolved] [Plugin: Tweet This] Is there supposed to be some kind of check box?

    Yes, it should appear on the right side of the Write Post/Page screens in WP 3.0+. In WP 2.7-2.9.2 it appears at the bottom of the advanced section instead of the sidebar.

    Here’s an example in WP 3.0.1 (the box at the top should appear in the right sidebar below the other boxes):


    Oh, I misunderstood. I thought there was supposed to be a checkbox on the POST and PAGE edit screen for this, so when you published a POST or PAGE it sent a tweet if you had a box checked.

    Maybe I didn’t misunderstand. I do not have anything like that to the right of the Write Post/page screen. Are there any known plug-in conflicts?

    No, there’s definitely supposed to be a checkbox there. Did you create an OAuth application on Twitter and enter the four keys in the Tweet This options? Go to Settings > Tweet This, and open the “Automatic Tweeting” section if not.

    Okay, I fixed it. here is where my confusion was.
    Under Automatic tweeting you have the two checkboxes:
    Enable automatic tweeting on posts & Enable automatic tweeting on pages.
    I left those unchecked because to me “Automatic” means that it is going to send the tweet when I publish a page no matter what I do.
    When in fact checking the option actually displays the checkbox on the WRITE POST or PAGE sidebar.
    Might be better worded as “Enable automatic tweeting checkbox on…”
    I dunno. Maybe I am just dense.

    Oh okay, I didn’t think of that. There are checkboxes right near those that say “‘Send to Twitter’ defaults to checked” so I thought it would make sense. The tweeting is still “automatic” in that it is done by your server automatically when you check the box, so I am not going to change the descriptions unless someone else misunderstands them.

    Please let me know if you have any problems or feedback on Tweet This in the future!
