ShortURL

The ShortURL plugin provides short canonical permalinks to your posts and pages similarly to WordPress.com via its WP.me service.

Why did you choose Short URL vs RevCanonical or shortlink specifications?

RevCanonical is not supported by HTML 5 and it seems that Short URL is getting wider support by big blogs such as Ars Technica and other sites such as PHP. We will closely monitor the developments and implement the winning specification.

Are you planning to provide third-party URL shorteners?

Yes, in the near future. Actually, third-party providers are already supported by the Short URL custom field, but it's not automatic and you have to shorten the URLs manually.

Are you planning to support alternative domains for short URLs?

Yes and this will also eliminate the dash in the URLs.

Will you add support for custom short URL patterns?

Yes. The dash-based one will continue to be the default one though.
