WP Bitly
'Get Shortlink' button gone (4 posts)

    Maybe I am mistaken in what this plugin provides. However, I am under the impression that like the 'jetpack' wp.me shortlink generator WP Bit.ly replaced the shortlink with your Bit.ly account. Therefore, I have installed WP Bit.ly and deactivated jetpack's wp.me. But the button when creating/editing a post that says 'get shortlink' is now gone and I see no other evidence of this plugin. What is the issue here?

    Same problem for me. Also Jetpack does not pick the bit.ly url and posts the permalink.

    Also, I want to suggest to user fopen instead of cURL. Google App Engine now hosts wordpress but cURL is not enabled and who knows if it will ever be. So GAE documentation recommends to use the standard PHP wrappers for HTTP(s) URLs like fopen.


    I downloaded your plugin and I had to modify it. But publicize still does not work.

    Fixed. I entered the correct username and key. At bitly site, go to Settings -> Advance -> Show legacy API key and there is the info the plugin is asking you.

    I think the recommendation here is to add some kind of message when this values are sumministered wrongly to the plugin
