WP Bit.ly uses the Bit.ly API to generate short links for all of your posts and pages. Statistics are displayed for each link from the dashboard.
No, shortlinks are generated by filtering the core get_shortlink() function.
WP Bit.ly validates all short links whenever you update a post, so if you change the permalink or location of the post, your old short link will be replaced with a new one.
With help from the new WordPress 3.0 Shortlink API, WP Bit.ly conforms with the specification by not only inserting the appropriate meta element in each of your pages, but also the HTTP headers.
The WP Bit.ly shortcode for including short links directly in your posts is quite simply [wpbitly]. This shortcode will also accept the same arguments that you can pass to the_shortlink(), including 'text', 'title', 'before' and 'after'.
If you are using WordPress 3.0 (remember to upgrade!) all you have to do is include a call to the_shortlink() anywhere in your theme or plugin.
