    Has anyone managed to add a custom Tweet This button to News items or to the News section?

    Kind regards,  Patrick

    Hello Patrick Julicher,

    Thank you for using our services.

    By default all News, Blogs, Events, or items from Images and Documents have a list of Social Bookmarks, which allow users Tweet, share on Facebook and other social networks. There is a twitter button which once clicked will direct the user ho his twitter account and tweet the article.

    If you are talking about this button, you should edit the control templates for the news view. You should download the external templates archive and edit ~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/News/ListPageMaster.ascx for news list and ~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/News/ListPageDetails.ascx. For the details view you can simply add the script they provide: 
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

    Please note however that if your url is not accessible by the tweetmeme crawler your button will appear but will be partly not functional, for example if you are testing this on localhost.

    Kind regards,
    Radoslav Georgiev
