Hi everyone,
First of all a big thank you to Ilia and the team for all your work on FUDforum Smile

I'm after some more information on FUDforum and twitter integration - my understanding is that v3 has some twitter integration tools. Is this correct?

Tried the online forums/doco etc but couldn't find anything,

Many thanks for any assistance you might be able to provide,

Kind regards,
Kathy

Ilia is not actively involved any more. We all do, however, hope that it's only temporary and that he will rejoin the development effort in future.

Integration is very basic. Users can supply a twitter handle that will be shown next to their posts. I'm not sure if anything more sophisticated would be possible. Anyway, we are always open for suggestions and (especially) patches!

Best regards.

Not sure if this is what Kathy means, but I am interested in the option for whenever a new thread is created in a certain forum, it automatically posts to a given twitter account..

For example, if I set up a forum that aggregates an XML feed, and whenever that xml feed gives something new, I want it to post to the forum as a new thread as well as give an update to my twitter account saying "News thread: The headline of the story"

You can already do it. Ensure the forum's XML feed is enabled and register with a service like http://twitterfeed.com/

Best regards.
