    Hi devpro,

    You can take a look at code in the Charity Starter Kit which includes Social media widgets like Facebook, Twitter & Flickr.

    I hope this helps you in your project. If you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    All the best,

    thank you for your message.

    I have look the Charity StarterKit, for my understood, the widgets deal with the UI part to integrate social site.
    What I need is some connector to process the backend communication between my site(based on sitefinity) and the local social site with like( Twitter) through their open API. I want to publish my blog/News to that social site.

    Does the sitefinity SDK include such a provider machanim or exapmle.

    Regards,

    Hello devpro,

    Sorry for not getting your idea properly the first time. I believe that going to Sitefinity>>Administration>>Settings>>Basic>>Twitter should point you in the right direction.

    Best wishes,

    Can I customize my own connector like this to sync content with China local social network?

    Hi devpro,

    Yes, the twitter pipe would work only with registered Twitter applications.
    But if I get you cottectly "I want to publish my blog/News to that social site." - this can be achieved. One way is to create a custom pipe for your local twitter-like service, but currently there's a bug to be fixed about implementing this functionality.
    What I can recommend you is to create an RSS feed that is publishing events, which you create in Sitefinity, and feed it in your other site. You can take a look at  ASP.NET RSS Toolkit and Creating a Feed resources, I believe they would be very helpful.


    Kind regards,
