Creates a custom short URL when saving posts. Requires your own YOURLS install.
I love YOURLS and this works perfectly. Super happy I found it. Also happy that Norcross is the dev behind it, because he does a great job of keeping his plugins up to date.
I've tried so many other YOURLS WP plugins, and this is the only one that actually worked for me! It auto-generates the short url when a post is saved, is visible form the post's edit page - where you can even set a custom url ending, and can be set to used by the jetpack share buttons (twitter, etc.)... this is really perfect! This should be the official YOURLS plugin for WP. Donating to the author because I'm that happy with this haha :)
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!
