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.
- Upload ‘twitter-links-plus’ to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- No step 3, you’re done.
- 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.
- Do I need to do anything?
No, download -> Install -> Sit back and relax.
