  • For some reason, this plugin (Twitter Tools) is adding Jquery to my front end… Why?

    Jquery is over 50K and I don’t see why Twitter-Tools needs it.

    Any thoughts would be great.

  • You have turned on the option to “Create tweets from your sidebar?”, so a JavaScript library has to available to send the AJAX request to post the tweet. Turn this option off, no JavaScript gets added to the front end.

    Also, there is an option to use either jQuery or Prototype so that you don’t have to load an extra JavaScript library if you are already using one.

    That’s pretty darn efficient if you ask me.

    Thank you very much Alex.

    I was hoping it was that simple. Thanks for the great plugin. I did a review of a handful of twitter plugins, and this was one of my favorites.

    Thanks again,

    Alex, it’s definitely efficient, but it could be a hair more efficient to completely JQuery when it’s not needed.

    Replace line 975 of 2.0rc1:
    if (is_admin() || $aktt->tweet_from_sidebar) {

    with the following line:

    if (is_admin() || ($aktt->tweet_from_sidebar && current_user_can('publish_posts'))) {

    This will keep JQuery completely out of the front-end if it’s not needed.

    Thanks for the plugin,
    Edward

    Good idea, added to 2.0.
