Sorry for the inconvenience, guys. Tweet My Post was not working for last 4-5 days and I only got to know about that 2 days back.
Being quite busy in office projects, I didn’t have enough time to look after my plugin. But I have already released the hotfix which has solved the issue. Tweet My Post is working again. Go and update the plugin from your admin panel or download it from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tweet-my-post/ asap.
My plugin uses https://github.com/jmathai/twitter-async library for Twitter API. It uses version 1, which is deprecated. However version 1 should work till March 2013 but it was returning “Page Not Found” error for last 5 days. I don’t have clue what has gone wrong with Twitter API or this plugin and I don’t have enough time to look into that either.
I fixed the issue by changing the version to 1.1 by updating line number 25 in EpiTwitter.php to
protected $apiVersion = '1.1';
You can also use library’s function to update version to 1.1 by using
before sending any request.
I’ve sent the pull request already to Github. Author of library will unit test the changes and merge it asap. You can use updated version by downloading it from https://github.com/ksg91/twitter-async until it is merged.
I have just released small update for Tweet My Post WordPress plugin. This update allows you to enable debug log. Response from the twitter will be logged, so that you can find out any issue, if any.
More updates will be coming in few days. This updates will bring custom tweet format, user authentication, etc. Stay Tuned.
Visit http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tweet-my-post/ to check out the plugin. Suggestions are most welcome.
What is Tweet My Post?
It is a WordPress plugin allows wordpress users to set their twitter handle and whenever a new post is published, tweet will be sent with post’s title, link and it’s author’s twitter handle. A sample tweet would be “POST_TITLE – POST_LINK by @AUTHOR” . If Author has not set any handle, only POST_TITLE & POST_LINK are tweeted.
Don’t forget to rate the plugin.
I have just released an update for Tweet My Post plugin for wordpress. If you are already using it, update it from Plugin menu. You can try plugin by searching for “Tweet My Post” in plugin directory or visit http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tweet-my-post/
New version doesn’t have changes to end user but I have updated code internally and added tracking system for me, so that I can analyze plugin usage.
Let me know if you face some problem or issue with this new update. Suggestions are most welcomed.
It’s really nice to see around 400 downloads in just 2 days. Thanks for the support guys.
WordPress’ official plugin contains some nice plugins that automatically replace mentions and hashtags with links to the profile and search page. But they also brings other several features. I just wanted a simple plugin which does only this thing. I also wanted to learn making plugins for wordpress. So I thought to make one.
So here is a plugin I named Autolink-Twitter. It links mentions to twitter profile page and hashtags to search stream.
Download Plugin: Autolink-Twitter
How to Install?
Put autolink-twitter.php file under your plugin directory and activate plugin from your admin menu.
I haven’t uploaded the plugin yet to wordpress.org library because I think very few people would be interested there.
You may keep up with this plugin on my Git repository on github at https://github.com/ksg91/Autolink-Twitter
