PluginBuddy releases free YOURLS plugin to add short URLs to posts

2 Comments

The smart folks at PluginBuddy have released a free plugin this week called PluginBuddy YOURLS. It acts as a compliment to YOURLS, a plugin from Lester Chan and Ozh Richards that allows for simple short URL creation using any domain.

With PluginBuddy YOURLS it’s very simple to add any short links into WordPress posts and pages. It will use an existing YOURLS installation to dynamically generate short links.

This latest plugin release was developed by the latest addition to the PluginBuddy team, Ronald Huereca. You may remember Huereca as the author of the popular WordPress and Ajax book.

The plugin is available via the WordPress plugin directory. Are you using it yet? Do you regularly use shortlinks on your WordPress site?

  1. I love shortcodes and use them in my personal blog but I would love to be able to create a few additional ones for specific uses.
    This looks like an awesome plugin.

  2. Christy,

    It’s not a shortcode in this case, but does allow you to generate short links from a post or page without having to visit your URL shortening site.
