The next step involves setting up your social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin. API keys are necessary for both LinkedIn and Facebook. In contrast, Twitter is the easiest to setup.

Social Accounts

There are many options, which need to be mentioned. We try to list a few of them.

Include Link: A very vital option for the plugin to work properly. This will make sure that you post easily reached. If the option is set correctly, all the work will be wasted. That’s why this option is at the top of the list.

Hashtags Family: Arrays of options are available for hashtag including normal hashtag, Common Hashtags, Max Hashtag length. The choice should be used with caution as too many hashtags don’t represent the target of the post.


Minimum Interval between Shares: The options let you fix the minimum time interval between shares. This can be anything between 12 hrs to only 15 mins. It all depends on how frequently you want your post to show on the social media.

Post Content: This option will let you choose what to share in your social media accounts. The current options that are available are:

  • Title Only
  • Body Only
  • Title and Body
  • Custom Fields

The choice is completely depends on your needs; you can further choose custom fields but be sure to enter all the details manually.

URL Shortener and Shortener Service: Twitter 140 characters limit can cause problems, if the name of the post is high, things might not seem pretty on Twitter.

URL Shortner

Minimum and Maximum Age of Eligible Post: This is another very vital option. You can easily set to choose from 1 to any upward limit (not infinity) for the post. This means that if you choose X days, then X days old only posts will be shared on the social media.

Post with An Image: One Picture is more than a thousand words, and on social media, the equation can be easily extrapolated.

Share Old Posts More Than Once: This option let you set “how” many times you want to share your posts. It’s a good practice to share it more than two times, before discarding it for good.

Excluding Posts: Now, there are chances that you don’t want all the mangoes in your basket to be shared, some can be kept for another reason. This option let you specify the posts that are needed to be shared on the social media.

This can lead to many benefits including traffic control to some specific posts. You can move through the Revive Old Posts area in your sidebar and move to the option of Exclude Posts.


Undoubtedly a great plugin, Revive Old Post can make a huge difference in traffic to your old blog posts because it can drive you fresh and regular traffic to all scheduled articles.

I would recommend you to use the lite version of the plugin before moving to get the PRO add-ons. The lite version is only limited to a number of accounts you can setup using the plugin.

Highly recommended plugin from my side, for anyone who is looking to save time and recall the old to revisit the new.
