Excellent plugin!
By , for WP 4.0

Excellent plugin! Will be even better if number of clicks could be reset and the shorten link could be customised with our own text. I hope an update could be available soon to include this feature. Thanks!

Perfect

This plugin is perfect. I use it with a custom shortening domain + .htaccess redirect. LOVE THIS!!! THANKS! <3

Works like a charm

Thanks for this great and simple plugin - works great :)

Links will not work if you deactivate the plugin

It seems to me that this plugin uses its own database to track the shortened links. So if you remove the plugin, all your links out in the world will no longer work.

I'd rather use a services such as bitly that I'm more comfortable knowing they'll be around for a while.

There's nothing "Wrong" with how this plugin works, thus why I'm giving it a medium star rating. And it's basically how bitly will work. But I decided to use a plugin that integrates with their (bitly's) services/database instead.

Quick and Easy implementation for internal and external shortlinks.

Thanks to this plugin I was able to implement a very quick and dirty redirection protocol into my site.

Very useful if you insert many links in your posts.

WP_PLUGIN_URL should be replaced by plugin_dir_url() ?
By , for WP 3.5.1

This's a excellent plugin.But I found a problem when using SSL in my blog.
I notice all URL in this plugin are created by WP_PLUGIN_URL and the generated URLs are not start with https: when the protocol is that.
This issue make a warning in my browser when I using https://*.* as URL.

many bugs

Better than bit.ly-like sites...
By , for WP 3.4.2

I like this better than bit.ly because my links look legit, not iffy. People (especially me) are becoming more wary of clicking on links that have been shortened by sites like bit.ly. You can't tell if you're actually going to be taken to the advertised site or tricked into going somewhere else. With this shortener, it shows your web address in the link so people KNOW they're going to your website. It even tells you how many times your link has been clicked on! Definitely a keeper!
