    Three persons asks me for that feature and I will release it in the next version …

    Do you want to beta test it ?

    I have the beta plugin you sent me working on a development site. Seems to be working fine. Took me a bit to figure out what the CPTs were called in bbPress: forum, topic, reply.

    One thing that I could use help on, is figuring out how to show the short links on the forum posts. They are obviously not loading whichever hook you use on normal posts. Additionally, my other custom post types don’t even use the loop. I am planning on adding the link at the theme level, but is there something I can do to make it show up with the option in the plugin?

    No sure to understand your wish …

    Do you want that the plugin displays all the Custom type available ?

    There are checkboxes, for showing the shortcode on the posts, pages and custom type article. The custom type article isn’t working on bbPress topics, or the Pods custom post types (Pods doesn’t use the loop when showing templates).

    For the project I am working on, I am making a theme and can just use get_short_link() and see if that works, but you may have another way to show the URL.

    Yes, that is true

    The custom type article isn’t working on bbPress topics, or the Pods custom post types (Pods doesn’t use the loop when showing templates).

    I do not see what is the link with the loop 🙁
    But I cannot say that I am an expert

    Yes indeed it seems a good way to do it.

    I thought that might help you debug that. The checkbox for custom type articles don’t show when I use the Pods template, and the only difference is that it doesn’t have a loop in it. If that is not the case, do you know why it isn’t working?

    I am so sorry but I do not understand this sentence ? Do you have a screenshot (by email if you want) ?

    In the parameters there is a section entitled Where to display the short URL?. None of those options show the short URL on bbPress pages or Pods custom post types.

    And are you sure that this plugin creates a real custom type ?
    Not an expert

    Yes, I am sure that Pods and bbPress does. They have shortened URLs created for them. It is just an issue of them not showing up as they do on posts and pages, with the boxes checked in the plugin’s configuration.

    Hum … I believe that the bbPress or the pods pages “hide” themselves to avoid any renaturation of their look by other plugins … This would be hard to overcome this issue 🙁

    @maiki Are you using Custom Post Types or Advanced Content Types with Pods?

    Are you using core WordPress theming (single.php / archive-your_pod.php) or Pod Pages for your URLs?

    Scott, I am using a CPT, and using Pod Pages for the URLs. I have a template showing pod content.

    Wasn’t expecting you to show up. Any ideas on this? ^_^

    @maiki I’m a bit more active when supporting my plugin than many others, I listen in on ANY mention of Pods on the forums and step in when necessary to provide extended support.

    Why are you using Pod Pages with your CPT? Custom Post Types automatically get yoursite.com/your-post-type/*/ so any usage of Pod Pages could be more of a headache than working within the constraints of Post Types and how they already function.
