Are you looking for an easy way to add the click to tweet buttons on your WordPress website? Well keep reading, in this article I’ll walk you through how you can add the click to tweet boxes in your posts on WordPress. To do this we’ll be installing a plugin. So the first thing we want to do is from our WordPress dashboard let’s head over to Plugins, Add New
and from here we’re looking for the plugin called Better click to tweet.
So let’s go ahead and click install now.
Once it’s done installing you’ll also want to make sure that you activate the plugin.
Great, when it’s activated you’ll see a notification up here
and you’ll also be able to click on the tab over here.
Scrolling down you want to set up a few things you want to make sure that you add your Twitter handle
and that’s so when you send out the tweet it’ll be like tweets like this. If you have a URL shortener you can click on that here
and then they have some premium styles that you can choose from if you upgrade to their premium version as well.
For now we’re happy with what we have, so let’s click Save Changes.
Once we save changes you see the information here on how we can simply add this bit of shortcode with whatever item we want in the quotes
So then we’re going to copy that and note that it also automatically shortens to 117 characters so just be wary of that.
So we’re going to go to a post that we want to add this to.
I’m going to edit this post
and scroll down to find what I want to put out for a click to tweet. Paste this here, I’m going to copy this piece
and put it down here.
Now I’m happy with that, so I want to update the post
and once it’s updated we can view the post
to see the click to tweet button in action.
Now when you scroll down in the WordPress posts you see the click to tweet box
and the little information over to the right encouraging people to click this.
So that’s a really quick and easy way to add a click to tweet button in your WordPress website.
