Just FYI, in case you hadn't noticed, we'd had an issue with embedding multiple tweets in one post here. Also if there were a lot of posts with tweets on a page, it would kinda mess up the page code. I may have fixed it, but just testing it out here. If you see this, just ignore it.

Ok, well it looks like that works then, which is awesome.
So, from now on, if you want to embed a tweet (or multiple tweets):
1. Open the tweet in it's own page/window.
2. You should see the URL look something like this:
3. Copy that long number near/at the end of the url and paste it into your twitter post.
4. Then either select the whole number and click the "tweet" button, or just put [tweet] at the beginning and [/tweet] at the end of the number. Should look like this:

Code: Select all

[tweet]713860964437766144[/tweet]
5. Finish your post and hit submit, and when the page loads, you should see this (for the tweet you are trying to post):
