Plugin Directory


Shortn.It is a customizable, self-hosted, URL shortener for WordPress.

Installing Shortn.It is a breeze.

  1. Upload the shortn-it folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Edit the post(s) you would like to create a Shortn.It URL for and the URL will be set once you update the post. If you wish, you may add <?php the_shortn_url_link(); ?> in your template where you'd like the shortened URL link to show up or retrieve it using <?php $link = get_the_shortn_url_link(); ?>. If you only need to retrieve the link address, use <?php $url = get_the_full_shortn_url(); ?> or <?php the_full_shortn_url(); ?> to output it directly.
  4. If you'd like to use a separate, shorter domain for your shortened links, a guide can be found in the help and documentation.
