drupal AddThis for Drupal

This small article might help you to figure out quickly how to work with the AddThis module for Drupal.
It is not a substitute to the original documentation : it just provides a concrete view of the configuration process from my experience.

Here is a sample "toolbox" generated with the AddThis module : AddThis : nicobo's sample toolbox

Here is an overview of the main steps to get AddThis working on Drupal :

  1. install the module : http://drupal.org/project/addthis
  2. choose in which nodes it appears : page, story, teasers, ...
  3. select which type of widget you want : they are called "button" and "toolbox" in the configure tab
  4. build the widget by adding components to it (only for "toolbox") : components includes popular buttons like facebook like, google +1, tweet, but also custom elements like separator, addthis 'more' button
  5. add a service customization for each component you listed : this step simply provides each component with adequate parameters
  6. customize it more using the numerous other options

drupal Displaying your tweets on your Drupal blog

If you want to display your latest tweets on your Drupal blog, you will probably want to use the dedicated Twitter module. Among other features, this module provides a new block type that lists a selection of tweets from an account. Tweets are retrieved via a cron job and stored in your website's database, making them available even through corporate firewalls that banish twitter.com. Just-what-you-need !

There are a few catches however : it will likely not work if you are on a shared host because Twitter puts rate limits to the usage of their API, and there is a bug in the block view that can be circumvented.
