Bit.ly in WordPress

I've been testing a little plugin wonder on my personal blog for a few days, offering shortened links through the service of Bit.ly .

Once the plugin is installed, it is called WP Bit.ly you just have to go through the configuration page to add the data of your Bit.ly account, and if you do not have it, this is the moment. You just have to enter your username and the API key you will find here .

The next thing is to press – without fear – the button called "Get shortlinks" and, after a wait that will depend on how many published, if you go to your Bit.ly account you will see that a lot of links have been created (here my example ), one for each published entry, that you can easily share … and short, also to follow the statistics of each link, one of the great virtues of Bit.ly.

Not only that, but also in the editor, in the button "Get short link", you will have the link shortened by bit.ly . Come on, great.

Do you want more ?, then you can use the shortcode of the plugin to show the short links in your posts and thus make it easier for people to share them. You can do it in two ways …

Show all available image sizes

If you are fond of photography, you will probably use the service of Flickr where you can easily upload your photos and other people visualize them in presentation mode or by image size. Also, it is possible, that you use WordPress to show your best photos in a blog or personal portfolio which always positions better in the search engines.

If this is your case surely you will miss some Features of Flickr in WordPress and one of the most obvious is power show the visitor all available sizes of the image .

As you already know, and if we do not remember, when you upload an image WordPress stores several versions of it. The object of this is to offer you several sizes to insert in your entries, and that you do not have to resize by HTML thus reducing the page load. Of course, you can always link a smaller size to the full image size, or another, from the WordPress image loader.

Then, this is shown on the attachments page, usually managed by WordPress themes using a file usually called attachment.php or image.php . What happens is that, generally, only the linked image will be shown, without giving you more options. Let's fix it …

The first thing you have to do is open the file functions.php and add the following:

We save and that's it, now when someone clicks on an attachment you will have the possibility to view all the sizes of the image.
