I know that AbanteCart has to receive funds by various means to keep going,

BUT

As many shopping carts and other websites feature facebook likes and Twitter tweets as the norm these days isn't it time AbanteCart caught up with the competion?

Before I started with AbanteCart I looked at an ecommerce which used wordpress.

Twitter and Facebook were FREE addons

I was able to add the tweets via an html block although 1 tweet at a time woulda suited me more.

Not code savvy sadly so unable to help in that respect.  :(

Hey Old Fossil,

Each of the widgets has the ability for you to change the size -  Twitter default is 600 px  ,  if you reduce that you will have fewer feeds showing.

Facebook has different widgets,  but I believe you can custom size most, if not all.

Try a few different sizes, and attributes and you will get what you want.  Just remember to render the new code and update your block on the cart  ;)

Are we talking about login with social mdia or jsut social media HTML blocks?

Just blocks.

Currently looking into adding tweets as an html block.

One tweet at a time woulda been ideal.  :)
