Bitly & Social Icons


#1

Wanted to specifically track social traffic driven from my site. I add shortened URLs (bitly) to the social menu and saved. when I checked the site the icons were not visible. when I set the links back to the standard the icons appeared again.

here are the links

any insight would be great.

Hi,

It’s because the icons get attached automatically to links in the social menu that contain twitter, facebook etc.
Open up the stylesheet and you’ll notice all the CSS for the social part at the top. Scroll down a bit and you’ll see Twitter and stuff. Copy the parts you need, paste them in a custom CSS plugin or child theme and change the links to the bit.ly ones.
