    Su.pr looks realy cool and I appreciate your tutorial on how to set it all up. I feel like a moron asking, but I type in my domain on the su.pre settings page and nothing happens. The plugin is activated and the API key is entered. Do you have any other ideas?

    Hi Harsh,

    Thanks for this nice tutorial. I followed all steps but still I can’t get it. (For your information: Am using DiggDigg Plugin also)

    I want it to work like if someone tweet from my blog, it should produce su.pr short link. Is it possible? for example see aext . net website. If you tweet from their article page, it will generate su.pr short link

    I installed the plugin and all of my links went down until I followed your step to click save on the permalinks. Thanks, my site works again. I’ve popped a link to this page on the su.pr forum.
