Plugin provides a simple short links mechanism for SEO. Now you don't need to use third-party services - the short links mechanism will now be implemented locally on your website. Plugin has a comfortable interface for adding and editing short links with configurable access rights. It reserves urls namespace /go/* as a root of local short links service.

Features

Plugin includes the possibility of generating random short links code using special algorithm. Depending on the length of the code, a different amount combinations is possible:

Code length Combinations
3 262.144
4 16.777.216
5 1.073.741.824
6 68.719.476.736
7 4.398.046.511.104

So, the probability of coincidence when generating a new code is very low. This guarantees protection against thoughtless parsing of links by a brute-force method.

Permissions

Plugin has two types of permissions:

  • plugin settings
  • editing short links list

Usage

After installation, a button "Short link" appears in the top menu. The short links management interface allows you to add, edit and delete short links. The interface is intuitive and provides an ability to generate a short link code with a special button.

You can set code length for the generating button on the settings page of the plugin. Plugin setting you can find in the "MISC" section.

After adding a short link you can share it where you want. Link will be like http://{yoursite.com}/go/{code}, where {code} - generated unique code of your link. When a visitor will open this link, he will be redirected with status 301 to your full link.
