[resolved] Some URLs are draft URLs not the published URL (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I've installed this on three sites, two are working really well. But on one of them when I publish/schedule a post, on the Social Broadcasts popup I'm getting a http://domainname.com/?p-187237 not http://bit.ly/...... About half will have the bit.ly link and the other half i get a draft url (http://domainname.com/?p-187237)

    All three sites are using the latest WP and using the latest Social.

    The ?p=1234 URL is the default shortlink output. Please see this section of the FAQ:

    "Can Social use Bit.ly, Bit.ly Pro or another URL shortener when broadcasting?"

    Hi Alex,

    Thanks for responding. After a day of live testing I'm still running into the problem of only a few select posts using shortlinks and others using the default shortlink, not even the "pretty url". I've set up Bit.ly pro user data in the wp-config file have the plugin installed.

    Most tweets uses the default url:
    https://twitter.com/sneakernews/status/215248094508486656

    And maybe one out of every 10 tweets gets a bit.ly shortened link:
