Twitter Links Plus+

Description

Checks Twitter usernames mentioned in posts, pages and in the comments (eg. @tquizzle) with the Twitter service to see if that user is indeed a Twitter user, then converts that user’s Twitter name to a link to the mentioned user’s Twitter profile page (eg.@tquizzle).

Important: As this plugin converts usernames on the fly (whenever and everytime somebody views posts, pages, or comments), and checks Twitter for every username (to ensure it’s valid), I strongly recommend using a caching plugin such as WP Super Cache. It will not only lessen the load on Twitter’s servers, but obviously speed up page loads in the process.

Installation

  1. Upload ‘twitter-links-plus’ to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. No step 3, you’re done.

FAQ

  1. It’s not showing my links.
    This sometimes happens…Its not our fault. Twitter has some API limits and sometimes you’re links just don’t happen instantly. You need to be using a good cache plugin to help this issue, but I’m open to suggestions on anyone who can easily remedy the problem.
  2. Do I need to do anything?
    No, download -> Install -> Sit back and relax.
