    call me slow but i really don’t understand how adding the button back actually provides any additional functionality. As far as i can tell it just adds an extra click.

    Also not sure how the custom text is different from the edit button.

    I am confused. Why do we need to get the button back if the original reason of removing the button was to clean the interface?

    A good reason to have the short link available is when manually creating eBlasts (where a long link sometimes won’t work, and isn’t needed for SEO purposes).

    Thank you for posting on how to return it simply through a function aadd_filter. Greatly appreciated! ;-)

    I would prefer to have kept the Shortlink button.

    I don’t want the additional clutter of more plugins. Nor do I want to lift the hood and insert code. Granted, it isn’t that much.

    Perhaps we could have options as to which features are visible and available?

    Having the default shortlink is basically useless. If you use a shortlink plugin, that generates actual shortlinks, then the shortlink button comes back all by itself, magically. Perfect solution as is.

    Hm, doesn’t work for me. Neither the plugin nor the code for the functions.php file. :/

    I’ve just launched a plugin that will add this functionality back in, along with a number of other recently removed WordPress functions. Each of them is switchable, so you can choose which features you’d like.

    What happened to the View Post option? Any way to restore it?

    Thank you bunches! This was a breeze. I used the function in my php file. Gracias!!

    I didn’t realize it was missing until a client asked me to put it back haha. Thanks, very helpful!
