I have a plugin 'url shortener' that shortens the urls. I have another plugin 'social media auto publish' to auto publish a post to social media. But this plugin doesn't allow me to use short urls, but instead uses permalinks which is set as 'domain.tld/postname/'. Now what i want is to use the shortlink generated by the 1st plugin above to be used in the 2nd plugin while publishing the post. As i am totally naive in programming/coding any help is appreciated. This is the file i think that generates shorlink and action/filter hooks: pub_get_shortlink.php

<?php
global $wp_query;
$shortlink = '';
$options = $this->plugin_option;
/*
    Ensure shortener is loaded.. 
    i.e all options are set correctly
    Abort otherwise
*/
if ( !$this->shortener_loader() ){
    return '';
}

/*
    Page type switches
*/
if ($context == 'query') {
    if ( is_singular() ) {
        $id = $wp_query->get_queried_object_id();
        $context = 'post';
    } elseif ( is_front_page() ) {
        $context = 'blog';
    } else {
        return '';
    }
} 
$home_url = get_option('home');
/*
    If Homepage
*/
if ($context == 'blog') {
    if ( empty($id) )
        $url = $home_url;

    if ( $options->get('urlservice') != 'yourls' ){
        $shortlink = $this->shortener->generate($url);
    }
    return $shortlink;    
}

/*
    If post
*/
$post = get_post($id);
if ( empty($post) ){
    return '';
}  
/*
    Set up post details
*/
$post_id = $post->ID;
$post_type = $post->post_type;
$post_status = $post->post_status;
$url = '';
$saved_url = get_post_meta($post_id, 'shorturl', true);
/*

 */
//check prior generation and publish status
if (empty($saved_url) && ($post_status == 'publish' || $transition == true) ){
    //Add 'Generating' word stub to prevent generation loops (esp. Yourls)
    update_post_meta($post_id, 'shorturl', 'Generating...');
    //Use permalinks
    if ($options->get('useslug')=='yes'){
        $url = get_permalink($post_id);
        if ($url){
            $shortlink = $this->shortener->generate($url);
        }
    //Use IDs
    }else{
        switch ($post_type){
            case 'post' : $url = $home_url."/index.php?p=".$post_id; break;
            case 'page' : $url = $home_url."/index.php?page_id=".$post_id; break;
            default : break;
        }
        if ($url){
            $shortlink = $this->shortener->generate($url);
        }
    }    
    /*
     ***********************
     * Allow other plugins to use generated shortlink (1st generation) 
     ************************
     */
    if (!empty($shortlink)){
        do_action('fts_use_shortlink', $post_id, $shortlink); 
    } 
//assign saved URL if already generated    
} elseif (!empty($saved_url)) {
    $shortlink = $saved_url;
}
//Update Custom Field
if (empty($saved_url) && !empty($shortlink)){
    update_post_meta($post_id, 'shorturl', $shortlink);
}elseif( empty($saved_url) ){
    //remove 'Generating' word stub in case generation failed
    delete_post_meta($post_id, 'shorturl', 'Generating...');
}
//Return Nice ID if shortlink is still empty
if ($options->get('niceid') == 'yes' && empty($shortlink)){
    $shortlink = $home_url.$options->get('niceid_prefix').$post_id;
}
/*
 ***********************
 * Allow other plugins to filter output
 ************************
 */
if (!empty($shortlink)){
    apply_filters('fts_filter_shortlink', $post_id, $shortlink); 
}    
/*
 ***********************

 */
return $shortlink;
?>

And this is the line of code i think that tells the 2nd plugin the link to the post: $link = get_permalink($postpp->ID); Full code is: publish.php

How can i get $shortlink from 1st plugin save the value in $link in the 2nd one. Thnx i advance!

1

when the shortlink is created, an action is trown with this line :

do_action('fts_use_shortlink', $post_id, $shortlink);

then you can hook your code on the action with this code e.g. in the 2nd plugin :

add_action("fts_use_shortlink", function ($post_id, $shortlink) {

    // here you can use $shortlink


}, 10, 2);
// 10 is the priority when there is several hooks
// 2 is here for the 2 arguments $post_id and $shortlink
  • Did this: add_action( 'fts_use_shortlink', 'fts_shortlink', 10, 2 ); function fts_shortlink( $post_id, $shortlink ){ if ( $post_id == $postpp->ID ) { $link = $shortlink;} } commenting out /*$link = get_permalink($postpp->ID);*/. Still m getting long permalink in published post to fb. – Vik Oct 21 '17 at 9:59
