Lost ability to tweet image ?

The one important thing to me is social sharing of images. I loved CE4's ability to show images on twitter with the text.  Can't seem to find where to 'switch this on' in Backlight.

I don't write or understand any code that is why I have been using this system. So talking phplugins or css is all greek to me.

In the slideshow presentation mode, click on the image menu icon in the upper right. You should see Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest links should already be there (assuming you're using version 1.2)

Re: Lost ability to tweet image ?

Unless I'm missing something, those links are to my pages on twitter, facebook, etc

The link I'm looking for is to post the image to my twitter feed.

The links with the large images are social sharing links. They will post the URL to the image's permalink.

Using the links, any of your viewers can share your images on their timeline.

What Rod wrote doesn't apply to single-image pages.

Re: Lost ability to tweet image ?

The links on the top-right of your page are the global social links that link to your social profiles. They are not intent to be used to share the content of a single-image page.

Charlie added what you are looking for using phplugins: http://community.theturninggate.net/vie … 028#p48028. Although you are not a coder, please give it a try. Once you enable phplugins, enable custom.css at the same time. If you run into questions regarding styling, the good folks on this forum will be able to help you.

Re: Lost ability to tweet image ?

or use the Slide Show presentation. That presentation has the social sharing buttons.
