Support

Shorty was only released a couple of days ago. I am doing my best to make it flawless, but bugs happen. If you faced one – feel free to ask at the Comments tab or contacting me directly. I mostly respond within the same day and fix problems pretty fast.

System requirements

  • WordPress 3.1. WordPress 3.3 or above is recommended.
  • Minimum required PHP version is 5.2.
  • IE8+, modern versions of Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera supported.

USAGE

  • Shorty adds an “URL shortener” widget that can shorten current page url and allows to copy it. You can add it to the widgetized area using Appearance -> Widgets
    section of the admin area.
  • use [shorty] shortcode to show a full url shortener form at any page or post. Parameters available are:
    skin – one of “basic”, “minimal”, “plastic”, “metro” or “goo” – selects a skin used. Default value is set at the settings page.
    table – “true” to show a table with previous urls shortened, false to hide it.
    use_current_url – if the form should default to current page url
    button_text – “Shorten” button alternate text
    url_placeholder – a placeholder for URL field. “http://” by default
  • use [short_url] shortcode to show a shortened url for the current page.
  • use [shorty_this] shortcode to show a “shorten this page url” link
    skin – one of “basic”, “minimal”, “plastic”, “metro” or “goo” – selects a skin used. Default value is set at the settings page.
    stats – “true” to show a table with previous urls shortened, false to hide it.
    button_text – “Shorten” button alternate text
  • use [shortlink] shortcode to create a shortlink. It will work pretty much the same way as A tag does:
    is a shortlink to Google[/google]
    The result will look the next way:
    <a href="http://your-site.com/sj2h" target="_new" title="Shorty URL shortener">This is a shortlink to Google</a>

PHP API:

  • use <?php $shortened = sho_shorten(‘your url’) ?> to receive a shortened version of any url.

= Installation =

  • Unzip the archive (probably, you have already done that :)).
  • Copy `shorty` directory to wp-content/plugins subdirectory at your wordpress installation.
  • Activate Shorty plugin from the WordPress admin panel by clicking Plugins, then “activate” next to Shorty plugin.
  • The plugin is active! You probably will want to change some settings.
  • Log in as admin (probably you already are).
  • Go to Settings -> Shorty, change what you need to be changed.
  • Feel free to ask for support! My email is [email protected] and usually I respond on the same day.

    Very BAD Script: The plugin doesn’t work with SSL. I have this alerte: jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:4 Mixed Content: The page at ‘xxx.com/’ was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure XMLHttpRequest endpoint ‘xxx.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=sho_shorten&mode=full&url=https%3A%2F%2Fyyy.com&customurl=URL+Personnalis%C3%A9e+(optionnel)’. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS. You must change all the http to https in your files
    +
    In the folder inc -s file integration.php
    change the string
    ‘ajaxurl’ => admin_url(‘admin-ajax.php’, ‘http’),
    To
    ‘ajaxurl’ => admin_url(‘admin-ajax.php’, ‘https’), I asked for support, never had.
    I Asked for a refund, stil waiting.

    :

    Pros:
    – Easy to style;
    – Does what it’s supposed to;
    – Lightweight;
    – Works on SSL sites; Cons:
    – Limited statistics/analysis;
    – Doesn’t save generated links after browser cache clear (makes it pretty useless to developers);
    – Slow to generate links; Overview:
    It works for the core purpose of shortening links but there’s limited statistics and analysis for the links which makes it less useful and the time it takes both to generate the links and to redirect to them is unfortunate. Best plugin of it’s kind on Envato but a few issues with the execution.
