    Twitter Site Integration with Wordpress??

    I am starting a site (wordpress based )and I want to know is their any modules or widgets already out before learning how to code it into my site that would let a user login their twitter account on my site and upload a badge that would then be reflected on their actual twitter profile...on the twitter.com domain. I heard their were some issues with having users login on other sites with Twitter not liking and it possibly being a security risk, but I wouldn't actually store any logins or passwords. They would have to login that one time to get that badge and thats it.

    Any points in the right direction or maybe another forum section this should be in I looked over before posting.

    Any help thanks

    I look through them none of them seem to be what I'm looking for. What I'm speaking of would require a users twitter name and password, but it wouldn't be saved. You would then choose the badge and click update and it would automatically apply the badge to your profile. You would then be logged out upon leaving the site. Any help? Twitter is Ruby on Rails right? Would this be something I would need to code myself or any help with a programmer that could get the job done maybe?

    please don't post the same thread in multiple forums -- that just makes more work for the moderators to merge them all together again, and furthermore, it leads to confusion if multiple threads have received replies, as then in the merged thread the replies are all chronologically interleaved, and you can't tell who responded to whom

    also, please read our FAQ in regard to bumping which is not allowed (plus, you gotta allow at least 24 hours anyway, as half the world is actually asleep when you post your question)

    thanks

    Is there anything like that? or would I just need to get it coded?

    Never seen a plugin that would let you do that. If it's to add something to their actual twitter profile (background image?) I think you'll need to do some custom programming even if you found a plugin to do the login side of things... sounds like you'd have to make your own plugin for this. The twitter API is pretty well documented though.
