Shortened Post URLs for twitter or any other social network that may need a short url. Default short URL is http://siteurl.com/p/175 ( where 175 is the post id ) but can easily be changed to whatever you’d like ( maybe http://siteurl.com/175 ).
Example template modifications would be “<a class="share-via-twitter" href="http://twitter.com/home?status=Reading: /s/” title=”Tweet this post”>Tweet This“
Inspiration from 5thirtyone.com ( http://5thirtyone.com/archives/2075 )
- Download the plugin and unzip it (didn’t you already do this?).
- Put the ‘short-post-urls’ directory into your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
- Go to the Plugins page in your WordPress Administration area and click ‘Activate’ next to Short Post URLs.
- That’s it. Have fun and if you can contribute (see notes).
- It doesn’t work
Read the installation guide.
- It *still* doesn’t work
Try updating your permalinks. You don’t need to change them, just save them again.
