Support » Fixing WordPress » Tweetbacks-Plugin generates wrong short-URLs…

  • If you use permalinks (so if you don’t use the default postid=<number> format) and you’ll do a Preview of your posting while editing, tweetbacks-plugin generates the short-URLs for the postid=XYZ-link.

    So if this happens by accident you have to remove the wrong options out of the database. This could be done with the cleanup-options in the option-menu.

    If the plugin would supress generating shortURLs in preview-mode, this wouldn’t happen… so maybe a point for the to-do-list?

  • Hm, may be this is why so many people are complaining that the plugin never picks up their tweets, because it isn’t looking for the right URLs.

    I tried clearing out all the short URLs with cleanup options but it hasn’t found any of the missing tweets. I always preview articles before posting so this seemed like a possible solution but apparently not 🙁

    Has anybody else had luck with this?

    This patch stops shorturls from being generated for non-published posts, so it should prevent the wrong permalink from being added to the short URL list:
