We recently set up our own internal URL shortener and needed a way to dynamically generate short links from a post or page. Here’s an example one we have for PluginBuddy: http://ithem.es/pb
There’s already a useful plugin for generating short links automatically as posts are published, which is YOURLS: WordPress to Twitter.
Our latest free plugin, PluginBuddy YOURLS, compliments this plugin by allowing users to insert any short links into a post or page. It taps into your existing YOURLS installation and dynamically generates short links for insertion.
- A settings page for inputting your YOURLS API information
- A post/page editor icon for inserting a YOURLS link
The plugin is freely available at the official WordPress plugin repository.
