WordPress 3.0 Quick Generate Short URL on Self Hosted WordPress

Wordrpress 3.0

WordPress 3.0 is released and having lot many new features. One of them is to “Generate Short URL” within no time on your own domain. Few months ago, a short URL button was added on WordPress.com sites for wp.me URLs, and now the same looking button is added in self hosted WordPress as well. The only difference here is that you can generate short URL of your post on your own domain. Short URL generated out of WordPress Dashboard is having Post ID as part of the URL. If you have not updated your WordPress setup yet, then also you can use the same looking short URL for your posts. You just need to get the Post ID of the post and create a URL like “yourdomain.com/?p=post_id”. This newly added button in WordPress 3.0 will give you same kind of URL for the post.

Creating Short URL’s in WordPress 3.0

  1. Go to the Posts tab from your wordpress dashboard.
  2. If you want to get the shortlink for a post which has been already published, then edit the post.
  3. You’ll see another tab Get Shortlink being displayed along with the Edit option under the post title.
  4. Just click the Get Shortlink button.
  5. You will see the shortlink of the current post being displayed in a small window.

You can now share the branded short urls in twitter, facebook etc without depending on other services.
