How to set up Switchy URL Shortener
To set up a Switchy URL Shortener on Publer:
Go to Social Accounts and select an account
Select URL Settings and click on Switchy:
Add the API key:
Go to Settings.
Select API key.
Name the API key and click Confirm.
Copy the value and paste it on Publer's dashboard.
Once Switchy 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 disconnect Switchy 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.
