Bit.ly Shortlinks Multisite (Uses OAuth 2 API)

This plugin replaces the default WordPress shortlinks with Bit.ly shortlinks for your single site or multisite WordPress network.

  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Insert this code to define your bit.ly generic access token in your wp-config.php at the end right above "That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging.":
define('BITLY_ACCESS_TOKEN', 'your_generic_access_token_goes_here');

You can get your generic access token here: https://bitly.com/a/oauth_apps

Multisite Installation

Install and set up your access token the same way as a single site installation but make sure you Network Activate the plugin.

How To Call Bitly Shortlinks In Your Templates

I've included the function get_bitly($url) to help developers easily shorten URLs in their templates.

Example Usage:

<?php
    $url = 'http://YourLongURL.com';
    echo get_bitly($url); // display your shortened URL
?>
