RevCanonical

A WordPress plugin that creates and adds support for shortened urls plus the shortlink auto-discovery tag

I just get a '404 page not found' when going to the shortlink?

A few people have mentioned this, but due to the fact they were unable to send and debug information, I have not been able to fix it. It is likely to be a configuration setting on shared hosting or hosting on Windows. If you are having this problem and would be prepared to help debug, please drop me a line at duncan [at] whomwah [dot] com

Does it work with earlier versions of WordPress?

Not sure is the simple answer, I currently run 2.8. If it works with ealier versions, please let me know via Whomwah.com.

But my domain name is really long

You can add you own shortened domain name if you own one via the settings page. This is for advanced users, as it's up to you to point your shortened domain back to the longer one. I do this via a ProxyPass line in that domains conf file. Here's my vhost.conf file. You can find out more about ProxyPass via the Apache website.

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName  littl.me 
  ServerAlias http://www.littl.me
  ProxyPass / http://whomwah.com/
</VirtualHost>

Can I contribute to revcanonical?

Sure, the code lives at the Revcanonical github project page. You can download or fork it there.
