User specify number of tweets


I am using the twitter app on the latest version of Perch, and have the following code on my page:


Is there any way I can let the user specify the count in the template? This is probably simple but I can't work it out.

Not in the tweet template, but you can specify it in a regular content template or as a page attribute for example.

Ah ok, yes I hadn't thought of that. Thanks for the help!

For future reference I ended up with this, the count is set in the Introduction Text template, which makes sense for the editor:

perch_content('Introduction Text');

$intro = perch_content_custom('Introduction Text', [
    'skip-template' => 'true'

$tweetcount = $intro['0']['tweet_count'];
