Customized Short URL

Settings Under Self-Hosted Short URLs

1. Go to Short URL Settings -> Short URL Generation and activate Automatic generation of short URLs for posts.

2. There are two ways to set your custom short link:

Variant 1 works only if the Automatic generation of short URLs for posts under Short URL Settings -> Short URL Generation is activated.

Variant 2 can be used, when the automatic display of share buttons is disabled and the buttons are displayed with shortcode or with element of Visual Composer.
