Topic shortlinks (bitly?)


(Jerre) #1

I would love to see a plugin to automatically generate bitly style short-links for forum topics. Using the bitly API would be great, since it allows for branded domains and it’s widely used.

I read this topic: Shorten share links but it seems like it’s only related to the goo.gl service rather than Bitly, and it’s not a plugin but an extension of the core.

There was talk of using https://goo.gl/ for shortening links.

Here is some discussion about link shortening.

I don’t see that example anywhere here…And I don’t see an option for that in my Discourse admin (I am looking under settings/posting). I wonder if it got yanked for some reason.

Ah, I did look around before posting but must have done a poor query, wasn’t able to find that topic. Thanks for linking it! :smile:
