Easy Twitter Links is my third plugin for bbPress. As I had told you before, it makes your Twitter linkage easy. It automatically links @example_username to a Twitter user, and #hashtag to Twitter search link.

About

It automatically links @example_username to a Twitter user, and #hashtag to Twitter search link. For example, if you post @TheGautamGupta, it would become a link like @TheGautamGupta and if you post #bbpress, it would become #bbpress. The links will also have rel=”nofollow” and target=”_blank” so that your site’s link juice doesn’t get leaked into the popular social networking website Twitter :P. This plugin is inspired from the EZ Twitter Links Plugin for WordPress made by Josh. Here is a screenshot below:

Easy Twitter Links

To-Do List

  • I am thinking to add some more features like linking to the users’ posts within the discussion or to a tag used in the forums.
  • I am also thinking to make an admin settings page, so that the options can be managed easily.

FAQ

Where is the plugin options page?

This plugin is a simple “Plug n’ Play”, and has no configurable options at the moment.

Will these links “leak” my PR?

No. The links all use rel=”nofollow” so you won’t be leaking “link juice” to an already super popular website. (Twitter) The links also use target=”_blank”.

  1. Do you have a Twitter plugin that will work with bbPress 3.3.3? The .01 version intereferes with the image upload plugin.

    Thanks
