Was a happy user of version for Joomla 1.5
Since Twitter changed their API, now looking at options for Joomla 2.5

Questions:
1. How can I manually post a tweet to multiple channels? Don't see such option to select several channels anymore??
2. Why Short URL, Original URL, Message and Full text are not clean? How can I make them empty each time I want to post something new? otherwise I need to delete all the fields and it is pretty annoying.
3. Why am I required to enter "Title *" for Twitter posts?
4. What's the difference between Post & Content?

Thank you

Hi,

In perspective, AutoTweetNG v6 has introduced a new generic model. All messages follow the same workflow:

www.extly.com/index.php?option=com_conte...tweetng-for-joomla-3

In this way, we've simplified the inner workings, rule managemt, plugins, etc. Now, we are readying the next product iteration, heading for AutoTweetNG v7 series.


1. In the new model, all messages follow the same model.



2. Why Short URL, Original URL, Message and Full text are not clean? How can I make them empty each time I want to post something new? otherwise I need to delete all the fields and it is pretty annoying.

The fields are filled in an automatic way by the plugin, rules, shortener service, etc. Are you creating all posts manually?

3. Why am I required to enter "Title *" for Twitter posts?

In the unified model, all messages must have a title. It can be the same message. Twitter is the simplest message (one field of 140 chars), but the model has to accomodate Facebook and LinkedIn structures. Also, rules manage the fields to create complex Tweets, like "[title] #joomla / [fulltext]"

4. What's the difference between Post & Content?

Post source is the old Manual Message, and Content source is the Joomla content.



Thanks,

1. & 2.
Yes, I do create a lot of posts manually. With actual interface it is like nightmare.
Do you think you can put back the old, clean and simple Manual Message tab with multi-select box?



I guess it would make the component more user friendly and solve the issues described in 3. point.
I don't really understand why plugin has to fill in the fields for me to delete later.

Thank you

Hi,

We are working to release a new version in July. This version is going to have a new form optimized for manual Post publishing (the current form is oriented to modify or check the automatic posts)

Thanks,
