Today there was a problem in a multisite blog network where there are many editors, and not all experts in SEO or broadcast on social networks. The issue is that sometimes write very long entry titles that then there is no plugin to share on Twitter that is able to manage properly.
After trying several plugins of the best, namely: IC besocial , Social Sharing Widget, JetPack, among others, none offered the perfect solution.
No one fits perfectly to the problem of the 140 characters of Twitter because if the title is too long you will find 2 Problems:
- The plugin adds to the dialog box the whole title and the URL, with what is passed from the acceptable characters for Twitter
- The plugin automatically shortens the title, with points suspensivos, something unacceptable because semantically contributes nothing.
What is the problem ?, because there is not enough artificial intelligence to stop a human being or has a measure when it comes to holding your publications .
So, is there a solution? …
Yes, but applying social engineering, that is, avoiding that the problem is generated, that is, avoiding the publication of entries with titles that are too long .
So, once chosen a plugin that shorten the URLs by integration with services like Bit.ly, it only remained to install a wonderful plugin: Limit to post title to X Characters with a name of the clearest, something to be grateful for.  You only have to install it and adjust the maximum allowed characters, where you can also choose because the administrator does not have that limitation (not recommended). You save the changes and that's it.
When you're going to publish a new post you'll see a new meta box next to the editor, which shows a character counter of the title, and if you happen 2 things happen:
- The counter is red and crossed out once your title exceeds the maximum characters defined in the plugin settings, so you know you have passed characters.
What was said, perfect .
