    I am opening a new post, because this is not related to the other post about the plugin.
    I have check that the twitter link uses this tweet for this url:
    URL:
    http://www.planetahuevo.es/tecnologia-gadgets/descargar-temas-wordpress-calidad/
    Tweet:
    32 sitios para descargar temas de WordPress de calidad. | Gadgetopost http://www.planetahuevo.es/?p=2367 via @planetahuevo

    The url used is not the permalink, and i think that is important.

    Thanks.

    Actually, that is the shortlink version of the permalink. WordPress automatically generates shortlinks with every post.

    If you visit that page, and view the source code, in the <head> section, you will find `<link
    rel='shortlink' href='http://www.planetahuevo.es/?p=2367' />`

    Both links are actually the permalink. The plugin utilizes the shortlink for two main reasons, 1. To save characters in the Tweet and 2. To seamlessly integrate with other plugins that alter the shortlink (ie: WP Bit.ly - which modifies WordPress' shortlink to a Bit.ly link).

    But, the plugin also utilizes the Tweet button's 'counturl' parameter (From the Twitter API: counturl = The URL to which your shared URL resolves to). This way, the shortlink is displayed, but the permalink is actually being credited for the Tweet. This is extremely beneficial, if you have a user that would rather copy and paste the URL into their own shortener and not use the button. The tweet resulting from this will theoretically still be counted.

    I understand what is a permalink, and it is true, that is a permalink, but it is not the one i have choose to use on my blog. My mistake on the post title. :(

    I would like the plugin to keep the same url i have choose on my blog, because i have my reasons to do that.

    If i would like to use the shorter one, i would have that on my blog too.

    I am not asking you to change it on your plugin, but could you help me to modify it on my blog to change the url? Thanks.

    Sorry if I came off aggressive, it was not my intention :)

    I just wanted to make sure that anyone who read this thread would understand that the shortlink was the permalink.

    But, you have a very valid suggestion and the more choices doesn't hurt. It was a simple update for me to make, so I released version 3.2 that allows you to choose between full links and shortlinks for the Tweet button.

    Hope this helps!

    You did right, the post title was wrong and now eveything is clear. :)

    I have been asking too much from this plugin last week. hehe :)

    The only thing missing is the RSS footer, but that is not as easy as the rest of requests.

    I will use the plugin as i think is one of the best plugins out there now.

    Thank you for your great support and for the plugin updates.
