Current version: 2.1.1
Version 2.1.1 released.
This is primarily a release targeted at tracking down some nagging problems; but it includes the ability to disable error messages for those suffering from errors even when the plugin is correctly shortening and posting your status updates.
- Fixed bug introduced in WordPress 2.9 where logged in users could only edit their own profiles and associated issues.
- Fixed bug which caused #url# to repeatedly be added to the end of tweet texts on reactivation or upgrade.
- Fixed bug which generated shortener API (Application Programming Interface) error messages when no URL (Uniform Resource Locator) shortener was used.
- Fixed bug which prevented display of URL on edit screen if no URL shortener was used.
- Added Spanish translation courtesy of David Gil Pérez
- Made so many language changes that aforementioned translation is now terribly out of date, as are all others…
- Added ability to restrict posting to certain categories.
- Added option to dynamically generate Google Analytics campaign identifier by category, post title, author, or post id.
- Added option to configure plugin to use other services using the Twitter-compatible API.
- Added support for YOURLS installations as your URL shortener. (Either local or remote.)
- Redesigned administrative interface.
- Removed use of Snoopy and alternate HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) request methods.
- Discontinued support for WordPress versions below version 2.7.
- Major revisions to support checks.
- Version jumped to 2.0.0

Update to my last comment: I installed this plugin last night on my blog and it’s working just the way I want. I had hard time with Tweet Me and had left configuring it.

Joe, I tried to use Tweet me, and it’s just not working for my blog. I dont know where it’s stuck but I would like to give this a try and see if it works for me.
Joe Dolson; February 5, 2009 at 6:45 pm
Well, that’s always been there…maybe something in the upgrade switched the setting! Not sure how that would happen, but I’m glad it’s not actually broken for you!
David; February 5, 2009 at 2:32 pm
Ah, I see there is a little check box at the side of the ‘Text for Twitter Update’ that says ‘Provide link to blog?’ Was that there with the earlier version?
Short answer – I checked that and it works.
David; February 5, 2009 at 2:21 pm
I upgraded to 1.3 and while the preamble wording is coming through to Twitter, the link is not. ?
Joe Dolson; January 24, 2009 at 6:18 pm
Thanks, David – I’ll be working on the plugin on Monday/Tuesday, and I’ll try and get that issue ironed out then!
David; January 24, 2009 at 5:41 pm
Just checked, and ” Update Twitter when an old post has been edited” is unchecked.
Joe Dolson; January 24, 2009 at 10:55 am
The control to disable Tweeting of edited posts should work for remote publishing – if it’s not working, I’ll fix that and release an update – let me know!
David; January 23, 2009 at 8:22 pm
Thank you Joe,
One point, I edited the post by adding a post-script to say that remote publishing worked, and it sent the edited post to Twitter. Is there a control to prevent edited posts being sent?
I know there is a check box that disables sending to Twitter when I am in the site and posting, but what about for remote posting?
Joe Dolson; January 23, 2009 at 8:00 pm
That’s great! I’m glad that everything is working as it should for you. 🙂
David; January 23, 2009 at 7:47 pm
I had not enabled remote publishing. I have now and I tested it out (with a post about enabling remote publishing in this plugin) and it works.
Joe Dolson; January 23, 2009 at 7:26 pm
@JoSe – What the plugin allows is for you to attach traffic returning to your blog from Twitter to a specific campaign in Google Analytics. It assumes you’ve already got Google Analytics installed on your blog via some other means; either a Google Analytics plugin or having added it to your blog theme.
@David – I assume that Marsedit is using the XMLRPC publishing protocol. Have you enabled remote publishing in the plugin settings?
David; January 23, 2009 at 6:39 pm
First thing is I use it and I like it.
Everything works OK except when I write a post with Marsedit, when it does not trigger to Twitter.
JoSe; January 23, 2009 at 3:56 pm
Hi Joe, and how do I set the G Analytics thingy ? I mean, how do I see twitter user and cligs api, but I do not see anything related to GA tracking code.
Joe Dolson; December 27, 2008 at 2:50 pm
Thanks, Davecat! I hope that it keeps working — given how you described your problem, it may be a while before we really know…but keep me updated!
Davecat; December 26, 2008 at 11:38 am
Just upgraded to WP version 2.7 yesterday; hopefully that should address the problems I was having with your plugin. So far, so good, it seems!…

Yer download button don’t seem to werk. Erg.
Kim Krause Berg; December 1, 2008 at 11:33 am
For now, I opted for the Tic to choose what gets sent to Twitter and what doesn’t. Just in case 🙂
Thanks for checking this out!
Joe Dolson; December 1, 2008 at 12:58 am
So, indeed it’s not really a bug. Technically, it was the edits of the WP Wall page which were being sent, and that was entirely reasonable…albeit not entirely clear from the docs. I need to add some further granularity on WP Page tweeting, so that page edits can be separated from post edits.
I don’t think there’s anything I can really do to protect against mass imports of posts, however, Christopher.
Joe Dolson; November 30, 2008 at 11:40 pm
Interesting…I’ll have to look at that plugin. Depending on how the plugin works, it may not be a bug – but I’ll have to find out!
It is an important point – people need to be aware of what their plugins are doing, and I can make it easier by mentioning this in the documentation!
Thanks, Kim and Christopher!
Kim Krause Berg; November 30, 2008 at 9:37 pm
I agree with Christopher! By accident I tweeted a comments made from my new WP Wall plug-in. That may even be a bug 🙁 In any case, everyone MUST go and fix their settings for this as soon as they install it, rather than wait for a boo boo to happen, like I did.
As far as install, etc. A BREEZE!!! Thank you 🙂

You should also mention to people to be careful, over use of this is a sure way to tick a lot of people off. A few weeks back, I did a bulk import of posts into my web site and it sent hundreds of Twitter posts … very bad plan.
