Sends status updates to selected maillists everytime you publish a post, using your own domain or others for shortened permalinks.
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 I'll not support anyone using outdated WP (or outdated PHP).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).
I wanted a (single) simple plugin to notify my the maillists we subscribe about our new posts.
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.
<?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.
