For larger WordPress installations, WordPress to Hootsuite Pro provides some additional features for debugging and better performance.
In the WordPress Administration, click on the WP to Hootsuite Pro > Settings in the menu.
Force Trailing Forwardslash
By default, WordPress to Hootsuite Pro will not include a trailing forwardslash at the end of the Post’s URL. Whilst the link will be valid, some users prefer to force the trailing forwardslash to avoid 301 redirects in their analytics.
To enable a forwardslash, tick the Force Trailing Forwardslash? option.
Use WP Cron
Videos are not designed to be a substitute for instructions. Please refer to the detailed Documentation below.
If enabled, status updates will be scheduled for sending to Hootsuite using the WordPress Cron, instead of being sent immediately when publishing or updating a Post.
Whilst this improves plugin performance on Post Admin screens, social media updates may take a few minutes to appear on Hootsuite. Also, if your site has low traffic volumes, the WordPress Cron may take several minutes, even hours, to trigger.
To monitor your WordPress Cron jobs, we recommend installing WP Crontrol. WordPress to Hootsuite Pro will display its jobs with the Hook Name wp_to_hootsuite_pro_publish_cron
Post Level Default
When creating or editing Pages, Posts or Custom Post Types, you can choose the default Plugin setting to pre-select in the WP to Hootsuite Pro meta box:
- Do NOT Post to Hootsuite
- Use Plugin Settings
- Post to Hootsuite using Manual Settings
