I would really like to enable the twitter short urls that are displayed in the twitter bar. I noticed the option to to enable the twitter short urls in the PlatformPro Settings>Blog and Post>Post Footer Sharing Icons section, but nothing changed after enabling it. Not sure if that would do what I want it to do, but I thought I would give it a shot. Anyway, the short urls are displaying in the twitter bar but do not link. Any help would be appreciated! The website you can see what I am talking about is at http://castleofchaos.com.

You're not alone. It is also this way in the demo when I checked and I didn't notice it was doing that before! Perhaps you should try an alternative Twitter feed plugin with short URLs that work. There are many to choose from here: http://wordpress.org...tter feed&sort=

The shorturls has nothing to do with the twitterbar.Its for the twitter link in the post social icons.

Actually it should be easy to fix:
Look in twitterbar.php
 
					echo make_clickable( $tweets[0]['text'] ) . '— <a class="twitteraccount" href="http://twitter.com/#!/' . pagelines('twittername') . '">' . pagelines('twittername') . '</a></span>';

Pross, Looking at your code, is it intended to make any URLs that appear in a tweet's text clickable, or is that a formula for making a Twitter name clickable? The issue of non clickable URLs in the Twitter Bar seems to have been addressed in this post: http://www.pagelines.../twitter-bar/p1 but the link they give to the supposed answer doesn't seem to be working any more. Here's that link: http://www.pagelines...pic.php?id=4510 PlatformPro 1.5.3 has a line in the Changelog which says: "- Feature - Twitter links includes title of post and url." Does this mean that 1.5.3 resolved this issue? I just uploaded it to my Wordpress directory to replace the old /platformpro/ folder with no discernible change. Is there something else I need to do?

I tried prose's code but it didn't work, anyone got any fixes on this? Seems like the default should be to allow for links? I'm quite sure behind the thinking why you want to disable hyperlinks? :)

I'm not sure if there was ever a correct solution in this thread to creating an active link in the Twitter feed using custom CSS code. If so could it posted here?

I am still without a solution on this. I would love to figure out how to get the twitter link posts to actually be links.
