How to set up PixelMe URL Shortener

To set up PixelMe URL Shortener on Publer:

Go to Accounts and select an account.
Select URL Settings and click on PixelMe.

Click Connect.
On the pop-up window that appears, add the API key. You can find it here.

Copy the API link on your PixelMe profile and paste it on Publer's dashboard.

Once PixelMe is connected to Publer, choose whether you want to:

Shorten any link. -- Publer will shorten all the links shared in the caption or comment of the post.
Shorten only link posts. -- Publer will only shorten the main link in the post.

Note: When you choose to shorten only link posts Publer will only shorten the main link in the post. For example, if you choose this option, create a video post, and add a link to the caption, that link won't be shortened. In this case, the link will be shortened only when the post is a link post (with a thumbnail).

You can always deactivate PixelMe by clicking on Disconnect.

Keep in mind, the link will only be shortened after the post is scheduled/published, so you cannot see the changes when you preview the post.
