ClassicPress Plugins Available From azurecurve | Development in 2023: To Twitter

ClassicPressIn this series of articles, I am going to introduce each of the plugins I have developed for ClassicPress, a hard-fork of WordPress, which was originally created to provide an alternative, yet compatible, CMS without the Gutenberg block editor.

The 49th plugin is To Twitter.

To Twitter

To Twitter includes the following functionality;

  • Automatic tweeting of posts and pages to Twitter as they are published.
  • Automatic retweeting of posts and pages a user specified period of time after publication.
  • Scheduled tweeting of posts and pages on a randomly selected basis at a user specified date and time (each day separately configurable).
  • Automatic adding of hashtags to posts and pages (save draft before manually adding any required hashtags).
  • Automatic replacement of word or phrases with hashtags (for example, switch the word ClassicPress for @GetClassicPress).
  • Sending of manual tweets (including tweet threads).
  • Sending of scheduled tweets (including tweet threads) at a user specified date and time.
  • Support for four media images attached to a tweet from posts, pages, manual and scheduled tweets.
  • Integrates with Short URLs) from azurecurve for post and page addresses in tweets.
  • Retain and view tweet history.
  • Links to tweets on Twitter in tweet history.

This plugin is multisite compatible with each site having its own settings.
