Short URL

Your article (including custom type) may have a short url hosted by your own domain.

4.2 out of 5 stars
Poor performance, bloated inferface
By , for WP 4.5.2

This plugin is poorly optimized - it will slow down your server and browser page load unnecessarily.

There's no reason to attempt to modify the content/excerpt if the "Automatic shorten links in article" option is disabled - this easily translates to hundreds of calls to function 'replace_by_short_link' (1 SQL query each) = SLOW SERVER. Also, a short link is created in the database for every page/post despite setting shortlink 'types' - this can easily create a very large database table unnecessarily.

If not making use of displaying the short URL automatically, does not stop the CSS style from being loaded into the page header = SLOWER PAGE LOAD.

The adding of a parent menu called "SL Plugins" is bloated and ugly.

Finally, you do not create an instance of your class (which is best coding practice) so that I can at least remove actions/filters for better performance. Giving this 2 stars until improved.

Doesn't fit my needs.

Works Well But ...

Easy to use, works quickly and efficiently and easy to set up new URLs. However you can't create different short URLs for the same external sources so it is not suitable for monitoring advertising campaigns. Would have given it 5 stars but for this.

Simple, easy and awesome!

I am using Version 1.6.2, most recent at the time of my entry here.

The Plugin is damn easy to use. Simply install it via integrated WP feature or upload the plugin, aktivate and thats it.

Edit Settings and there is external Links. Paste your Link here and send, you get the result, thats it. You could even add a comment so you know where the link is, whats its purpose or whatever comes to mind.

Nothing fancy, not too much, exactly the way a plugin need to be!

I am more than happy with the Plugin, as i got rid of every bloated referal Links in moments and from now on it looks simply clean.

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
