Just found a WordPress Plugin for GO.6.CN written by fairyfish , which generates a shorter URL for every post using service provided by go.6.cn . I started to think that, hey, why not make a similar one using TinyURL? That must be fun. The problem was, I couldn’t find the API on TinyURL’s homepage. Google did help at that time. Surprisingly, TinyURL has a really simple API, which is too simple to describe. Scripting News gave the detail info here .
Finally, here it is. A WordPress Plugin named "Tiny Post URL", which adds a TinyURL at the end of the post. Share it, enjoy it, have fun!
- Unzip the
- Upload the the
tiny-post-url.phpfile to your
wp-content/pluginsfolder. If you’re using FTP, use binary mode.
- In your WordPress administration, go to the Plugins page and activate this plugin.
- That’s it! No configuration needed.
