(Update 2012-10-20) I see there is a new version of Twitter Tools, ver 3.0. The new version is a complete rewrite so this plugin is no longer compatible. I’m planning on taking a look to see how much work it is to update and get it working with the new version of Twitter Tools
I’ve been looking for a YOURLS url shortener plugin that is compatible with Twitter Tools for a while now. There was one “yourls plugin for twitter tools 2.0” but it’s been unmaintained since August 27th, 2009.
I finally bit the bullet and wrote my own. The plugin is based on Twitter Tools – Bit.ly URLs code and has been tested with WordPress Version 3.0.1. It’s still pretty Beta, for example I don’t check if the Service URL and Signature token is correct or even entered. But it works for me.
Copy the contents of the archive into the
wp-content/plugins/ folder then activate the plugin on the “Plugins page”.
Once the plugin has been Activated, you can configure it via the Twitter Tools settings page. You’ll need to enter the full API url (including the
yourls-api.php). You can find your Signature token on the tools page of your YOURLS installation.
Here is a packaged version of the plugin yourls-tools.tar (27 August 2010)
