yes this i know… but WHERE this function acts?
where the links are automatically shortened?

when i use a link in a email? or a landing?
because none of my links is getting shortened

I have the same question, I have it setup as well with bit.ly api key, but don’t see my URLs being shortened?

[quote=14163:@MxyzptlkFishStix]I don’t use bit.ly, but it works just like what I’m using with YOURLS.

You have to generate an API access token and paste this URL below in the URL Shortener under Miscellaneous Settings.

https://api-ssl.bitly.com/v3/shorten?access_token=ACCESS_TOKEN&format=txt&longUrl=[/quote]

@MxyzptlkFishStix Can you explain how I can connect to Yourls? Not familair with API :S
