Inject a shortcode or JS into each post topic automatically.

  • Ph0eniX2018


    I am trying to get a twitter button to display inside each post at the bottom.

    I am using the 2.0 plugin with WP 3x. I have been through both the template and plugin. I am using the Elbee Elgee 1.3.5 BBPress ready theme.

    The Twitter plugin I am using has both a shortcode and a JS I can reference to display the “Tweet Me” button. I can get it to display anywhere I want, but I am unable to find where to place the code so it shows up within the actual topic posts.

    Day 3 of trying to figure this out, so thought I would lick my wounds and ask for help.

    WP 3.3.1

    BBPress: 2.0.2 Plugin

    Theme: Elbee Elgee 1.3.5

    PHP: 5

    You’ll probably need to hook a custom function ithat you create nto one of the actions in the template files, depending on where you want the code to appear.



    I would like the Tweet button to display on the bottom of submitted topics. I’ve tried several methods, but I can’t seem to place any code inside of topic content.

    How do I expand on the topic hook to automatically place code into any submitted topic?

    I would even be ok with placing the button outside of the topic, like the container, but I have been unable to do this. I am using the plugin, as well as a BBPress ready theme, so I have been hacking both trying to figure out how to get the desired code into topics.



    I found a workaround for displaying a Twitter Tweet Me button inside individual topics on bbPress 2.0 and using WP 3.x.

    Open up: wp-content/plugins/bbpress/bbp-includes/bb_user_template.php

    Under // Default arguments on line 451 after: ‘after’ => ‘)<include tweet me js script here>

    The above will display your twitter button directly under the topic posters name/ip address (if enabled). Use line breaks as needed.

    This is likely not the best solution, but given the utter arse-circus of using bbpress plugin, and a bbpress template, and since support is very limited for bbpress, this might work for you as well.
