I'm just posting this thread to confirm that it woks well with wp 4.1 and buddypress 2.1.1 and bbpress 2.5.4

to show the shortlink of topic titles, you should open the file loop-single-topic.php from bbpress template, and insert this line where ever you like to show the shortlink:

<SPAN STYLE="font-size: 8pt">
<?php if (function_exists('wp_ozh_yourls_url')) wp_ozh_yourls_url(); ?>
</SPAN>

it's better to have a child theme of bbpress template files instead of editing the core component. you could search for child themes and read the documentations.

Name is false advertising at this point

I loved using this program to tweet my posts with shortened URLs from my YOURLS site, but I was not pleased when a "WordPress to Twitter" program no longer allowed this. You see this message (screenshot) on the Settings section for this plugin. Rename the plugin here if it no longer works with Twitter. Time to find a new YOURLS & Twitter plugin or just write it myself.

Nice plugin

Nice plugin, it would be even better if in the documentation itself was mentioned how to implement it in a subdirectory, took me a while before i found it in http://code.google.com/p/yourls/wiki/htaccess.

Works great, thanks :-)
