Twitter Integration with Post Rating

I’ve noticed that there are a lot of Scouters on Twitter. You can already follow @halfeaglebot on Twitter and get updates whenever new posts show up on the HalfEagle home page. But I wanted to do even more. 🙂

The first step to that would be to let folks integrate their Twitter account with HalfEagle.com, and that feature is live starting right now. What can you do with this fancy new integration? Well, not much yet. 😉 I plan on adding all sorts of social goodness and giving you tools to more easily share the posts you like to your Twitter followers.

Post Rating Zoom

New Post Rating Bar

Until then, there is one feature that you can only access if you sign in to HalfEagle using your Twitter account. That feature is post rating!

Once you sign in, you can give posts a rating from 1 to 5 stars. I hope to be able to use everyone’s ratings to recognize the best content that our Scouting bloggers produce. There is already a popular posts page on HalfEagle, and these new ratings will power a new “top rated” page on HalfEagle.

Let me know what you think of this new feature and make sure you rate your favorite posts!

  1. Thanks Dan!

    Was it when you had your mouse over the actual rating? If so, I just edited the code to fix that particular bug. If you are still seeing a broken image though, please let me know. 🙂

    I’ve actually discovered another bug where HalfEagle.com keeps forgetting that I’ve already logged in to Twitter. But that will have to wait until tomorrow night, as I have a Troop meeting tonight to prepare for. 🙂

    Thanks Dan,
    Gregg
