Fatal Error When bitly API is Down
When pointing api-ssl.bitly.com and api.bitly.com to 127.0.0.1 to simulate the bitly API being down and then attempting to write a post, I get:
Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘BitlyServiceError’ with message ‘couldn’t connect to host’ in /wp-content/plugins/bitly/lib/BitlyService.php:294 followed by a stack trace.
I would expect that the plugin would fail silently and simply not create the bit.ly URL in the post_meta table, for which I test in my code. Can you provide a fix, or, if I’m testing this incorrectly, let me know how to test correctly.
