[resolved] Hitting bit.ly API limit (2 posts)

    Hi Sudar,

    Occasionally our tweet-count won't show up and links to bit.ly will be wrong (http://bit.ly instead of the full url ie http://bit.ly/xSjs etc). This only happens sporadically, then we get the count and correct links back.

    I emailed bit.ly and discovered we've been hitting our API limit. They say this is most usually caused by scripts which create the links on page-load. They sent a link to their best practices doc here: http://code.google.com/p/bitly-api/wiki/ApiBestPractices

    We don't really get enough traffic to hit the API limit through volume of people retweeting, so I suspect it's that on-page-load thing. Do you think there's a quick way to change up your plugin so it's not creating the bit.ly links each page-load? We're using the template function to render the buttons.

    Thanks so much for your help!

    Thanks for bringing this up to my notice.

    The change is slightly involved. I will update the Plugin to fix this issue.
