Displaying the ShortLink in your theme ↑ Back to top

Whenever The Loop is used in your WordPress theme, you can make use of the following code to display a link to the shortened URL:

<?php the_shortlink(); ?>

(commonly used on the “index.php”, “archive.php”, “page.php” or “single.php” files)

Shortlinks are only available for pages, posts and custom post types- not for categories, tags or any other WordPress screens. This is in accordance with the native WordPress shortlinks functionality.
