I'm looking to shorten permalinks in Wordpress automatically within the loop but it seems there is no information on the su.pr api.
Is su.pr dead?
This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
Per Twitter reply to me this date (11/27/2012) when I inquired (multiple times) why su.pr posts were not making it to Twitter but the URLs were shortened.
I would have to copy the "tweet" into a blank Twitter tweet box before attempting to post it.
Once it failed to post, with a "Retry now >" clickable link, I would copy the shortened URL and replace the long URL with the shortened one in the waiting to be released Twitter tweet box.
Now StumbleUpon's reply:
"@StumbleUponHelp: @katiemae_beader Hi, unfortunately we discontinued su.pr a while back. We will not be fixing issues for su.pr but links should still work."
@StumbleUponHelp sorry 2 hear that. can't C using su.pr if it doesn't post 2 @Twitter or @Facebook. just makes dbl work 4 me. guess another URL shortener
Now the question that begs to be asked:
How, if at all, does deactivation of su.pr affect StumbleUpon effectiveness?
