Short Tag: cbtweet
In any article no editor mode/html (use toggle editor button) use the shortcode “cbtweet” like below:

{cbtweet url="tweet link is here" /}
{cbtweet url="" /}

Using align: align= left, right, center

{cbtweet url="" align="left" /}

Using width:

{cbtweet url="" width="450" /}

Note: Width parameter doesn’t work while align is used. For left or right align width is 350 and middle align 500. Maximum align is allowed 550 and minimum is 350. We suggest no need to use align or width, just keep it simple 1. shortcode 2. url !
How to find the tweet link:
Go to Twitter and click on any tweet, this will show some extra link at bottom of that box. Click details or copy the link of details which is the link of tweet. Or go to the details link, click embed button and go to tab “link”. OR you can modify the shortcode given in Twitter from this format
to this format
{cbtweet url=""}


Why buy this plugin:
Certainly you can embed tweet collecting from twitter, the html embed code but why you will buy this plugin? At Codeboxr we made some tricks so that twitter javascript is not loaded again and again and you site is not blocked while loading twitter javascript. Suppose you have the tweet embed code in 3 posts then the twitter default html embed code will load twitter javascript 3 times but our plugin will load once and this is not last thing, but if twitter javascript is added by any of our other plugins like social share and vote button it will not add again. Yes we added the twitter script integration asynchronously so that your site is not blocked while loading, which the default twitter html embed code can cause such problem…



Reviews & Testimonials

Tweet Embedding Using Shortcode: Perfect

Saw no reviews but bought the plugin anyway expecting/wanting it to work as hopped. It did. Downloaded the Joomla 1.5 version for our k2 based site, published it & made no changes to the default settings. The insertion code was easy to follow. Thanks.
