Creates a custom short URL when saving posts. Requires your own YOURLS install.
Generates shortlinks just fine. But it displays the long permalink, rather than the short URL on posts.
The forums show unresolved issues with this plugin. Still, I tried it. Only to find it doesn't work.
I installed YOURLS on a new domain. It was up and running without problems. Then I installed this plugin and found it only generates short URLS for new posts. I have thousands of old posts. The only option I could find to resolve that was to edit each post and save it. And that suggestion was by a plugin user, not the author (who had ignored those forum posts for months).
Since I had no intention of editing that many posts just to get YOURLS short URLs generated for each one, I removed the plugin, removed YOURLS, and installed JetPack instead--which generated wp.me short URLs without incident and for new and old posts.
I have no complaints! I'm using this for 6 websites on one Yourls install, everythign is smooth sailing!
