Tweet Button

By bcammobcammo


This snippet will add the official Twitter tweet button to your wikidot page. This allows visitors to tweet about the page they are on by displaying a popup window, meaning they don't need to leave your site.


The snippet uses the following attributes, most of which are required for the button to work properly.
Attribute Required Allowed values Default value Description
url yes any valid URL, including %%link%% The URL of the page you want to share.
text yes any text The text that people will include in their Tweet when they share from your website.
via yes any twitter username The username you want @-mentioned in the tweet (probably your own).
count yes vertical, horizontal, none Controls the display of the tweet count.
align no left, right, center left Sets the horizontal positioning of the button.

Please note: the float variable has been changed to align, as it better describes the function of the property. Please adjust your includes accordingly.


You can add the tweet button to your page with the following code:

[[include :snippets:tweet-button
|text=Check out this awesome page on @wikidot

You can also use the button in a live template. Such a use might use the code below.
[[include :snippets:tweet-button

In action

See the button below for a real-life working solution. Go on, you know you want to press that button…
