    Hello,
    I’ve just installed the new free add on to use ShortURLs with Twitter share. It works great but i’ve already a plugin that make all my links shorten by Bitly by defaut and i don’t want to use Google shorten URLS but those Bitly URLs.
    By defaut they are used when i call the wp_get_shortlink () function. Is there a way you could adapt the add on so we could have the choice between Google short URLS and the default one use by the website (WordPress short links or else) ?
    I’ve try to change it in the template-functions.php of the main plugin using wp_get_shortlink () instead of get_permalink () but i’m not sure if it won’t mess with the sharecount and the shortlink is aldo used with facebook making the sharing slower.
    Thanks

    This will mess with the share count function and will return wrong results

    You could rewrite your own add-on to use bitly or you extend the current addon for support with bitly and this library for example:
    https://github.com/Falicon/BitlyPHP

    Writing or modifying add-ons for mashshare is very simple.
    Hope i am able to write some tutorials about it in the next time.

    Try the following as a workaround for your page:

    Line 75 of scripts.php in mashshare-shorturls/includes

    Change: ‘shorturl’ => mashsuGetShortURL()
    to: ‘shorturl’ => echo wp_get_shortlink()

    Does this work?

    Hello,
    The change didn’t work with ‘shorturl’ => echo wp_get_shortlink() but it works great with ‘shorturl’ => wp_get_shortlink()
    Thank for your answer 🙂

    I am glad to hear. I will put this code as an option into the next update of the shortlink addon.
