    Sharing blog posts to social media from backoffice.

    Hey there guys,

    Is there a package that enables sharing posts to social media from the backoffice itself? I know uShare exists but I have not been able to make it work on Umbraco 7.5 sadly.

    If there is not package for it, may I get some insight on how to do it myself?

    Hi Daniel

    Have a look at this long blog post here:

    http://tooorangey.co.uk/posts/heres-where-the-story-ends/

    beyond the waffle is some instruction on how to setup tweeting from the backoffice.

    With a link to a git repository that contains the code:

    https://github.com/marcemarc/tooorangey.TweetThis

    it works with the Skybrud.Social package that does all the hard OAuth stuff for you, and shows how you can wire up a 'tweet this' menu item to send out a tweet containing a link to the article.

    regards

    Marc

    I followed the tutorial and it works really well. I'm sure you could also modify it to make it post on facebook as well - maybe create your own package and share it on Our :)
