Base64 Shortlinks

Beschreibung

The default WordPress „shortlink“ URLs look like this: http://www.example.com/blog/?p=123, where „123“ is actually a 7+ digit decimal number. This plugin shrinks your shortlinks by encoding that number into only 4 characters, and using the abbreviated URL prefix of your choice.

On my site, the default shortlinks are 35 bytes long, even though I have a very short domain name. This plugin shrinks them to 21 total bytes, which is comparable to most public URL-shortener services, and better than many.

E.g., this: http://www.jwz.org/blog/?p=13240780
becomes: http://jwz.org/b/ygnM

This doesn’t affect your (long) permalinks: those can still be in whatever format you like.

Installation

  1. Upload the base64-shortlinks directory to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the „Plugins“ menu in WordPress.
  3. Select the „Base64 Shortlinks“ menu under „Settings“ and enter your Shortlink URL Prefix.
