Shorten2List

Sends status updates to selected maillists everytime you publish a post, using your own domain or others for shortened permalinks.

Will this plugin works in WordPress older than 2.7.x?

Maybe, but use it at your own risk. I'll not support anyone using outdated WP (or outdated PHP). At the moment of writing this I’m running this plugin on WordPress 2.9 and PHP 5.x and works fine, and was running without problems on WP 2.8.x and 2.7.x too. If you run anything below WP 2.7 and PHP 5.x, please update for your own good! (and dont ask me for support).

Why you did this plugin?

I wanted a (single) simple plugin to notify my the maillists we subscribe about our new posts.

Are you planning to add more features?

At first only a few little improvements maybe. But if someone suggest a nice feature, and if I have time enough maybe I'll add it. But it's not my priority. I want to keep it simple.

I want to show the short permalink to my visitors. How can I do this?

Simply put <?php short_permalink(); ?> in your theme where you want to show short permalink. You can add the parameter 'linktext', <?php short_permalink('linktext'); ?> and it will use the short permalink as text for the link too. Or if you have advanced knowledge of WordPress theme coding, you can get the 'short_url' post meta directly and showing it as you like.
