WP to Twitter Update

November 24, 2008

Topics: WordPress.

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  • Made so many language changes that aforementioned translation is now terribly out of date, as are all others…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

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
