Social Update

20 Nov 2011

Social Update

Social Update allows you to send customized update to Twitter / Facebook / LinkedIn when entry is published.

The update is sent when entry goes live with defined status (‘open’ by default). Entry date is respected. Scheduled posting is possible.

The text of update can be entered in Control Panel or SafeCracker. The link to the entry is included automatically (based on entry_id, url_title or built with Pages/Structure module) and also can be manually entered. It is also shortened when needed so.

Previously sent updates are saved and can be displayed with the entry using template tags.

You can authorize as many social accounts as you need, and include multiple Social Update fields with the entry. The fields for posting can also be added to Matrix row.

The documentation is included with addon and can also be found here
