Short Link Make in Town News

tengstrom 4 weeks ago • updated by Kevin M. Cox 3 weeks ago 2

On WordPress, it offers users the means to grab a short link for the purposes of social media cleanliness, right there in WordPress. With Town News, we have to go to bitly or some other outside provider to get a short link. Why not add a short-link maker within the system, as it doesn't seem to require much programming to do? It could say "Get short link."

Agreed. We used to do this feature all the time in wordpress. We also have our branded bitlink, so the ability to put in our oauth key to use it would be even better.


You should add in a feature request for this.

I'd like to take it a step further and allow papers to use a custom domain for their shortlinks. (e.g. nydn.us vs. nydailynews.com).
