Can we imbed Twitter tweets into our posts without taking images. 




MOD EDIT:
All you need to do is "Copy Tweet Link" from Twitter and paste that into your post here.
The system will take care of caching/embedding the tweet and include the URL to the tweet below it, in case the mod ever breaks (you'll still have the link to the tweet)

Not sure. Might need a mod for it. Admins have the ability to best HTML tags, but I don't think the rest of y'all do.

It might. It's 5 years old though, so who knows how well it will work with the current version of SMF.

The only reason I think it might work, is that the forums here are at 2.0.12 and the add says it compatible with 2.0.X.

That's not confusing at all. The changelog from 2012 says 'Compatible with SMF 2.0.x'. The note at the top of the page says 'Compatible With: 2.0.2' which is 10 releases behind 2.0.12  :D

Am I using the correct tags.  Or is this not available to everyone.
