FEATURE REQUEST: Add URL Shortener Designator (4 posts)

    It would be nice if you allowed us to set the URL shortener in the STC Auto-Post Settings, e.g. Bit.ly, TinyURL, etc. and allowed us to link that URL shortener with our personal account via the API key so that we could receive analytics and tracking on clicks.

    Otherwise, very nice and easy-to-use plug-in.

    Actually, STC uses the built in WordPress Shortlink API for getting shortened URLs. So if you use a plugin like WP Bit.ly or YOURLS or any shortlink plugin in the directory that implements the shortlink API properly, then STC will automagically use those.

    So, no need to choose manually in STC, just use a shortlink plugin implementing the service you want and magic happens.

    The analytic tracking and such should be handled by a plugin specially built for it. It's out of scope for STC itself.

    Hi Otto,

    Just installed STC and SFC. SFC is working like a charm, as is STC. Just have a question about STC, though: How do I display the permalink in the tweet?
