The twitterfy function in CE String is creating bad links for hashtags (they go to an old URL for an API that's no longer supported). Is there a quick fix?


To fix, update system/third_party/ce_str/pi.ce_str.php (around line 1457):

$string = preg_replace("/#(\w+)/", "<a href=\"http://search.twitter.com/search?q=\\1\" target=\"_blank\">#\\1</a>", $string);

... to this:

$string = preg_replace("/#(\w+)/", "<a href=\"https://twitter.com/search?q=%23\\1\" target=\"_blank\">#\\1</a>", $string);
