Support » Plugin: Better YOURLS » Add option to turn off sharing of YOURLS short url to social media

  • Hi guys

    Would it be possible to add the option to disable the YOURLS short URL to be used when a post is shared via Jetpack’s Sharedaddy?

    Our social traffic increases the load on our YOURLS server to the extent that the server runs out of capacity.

    We use YOURLS to gather stats for specific campaigns, rather than every post published.

    I would create a plugin to modify this if I could, so a hint to which action or filter to use would also help.

    Thanks

    Hmm. Are you still wanting ShareDaddy to run, just without the short url?

    Yes. Our YOURLS is installed on a seperate domain with a less capable server. Our WordPress server would be better able to handle the traffic generated by sharing.
    Thanks for having a look 🙂

    Admittedly that isn’t a use case I had considered but I’ll add it to the todo list. With a little luck I’ll have some more time to dig into it this week.

    Wow, thank you Chris!
