Short URL’s

    Anyone know of a custom URL shortener that also works on localhost (for testing)?

    Nevermind, looks like too much work and a little bit outdated..

    I have no idea if it will work locally, but if you are using WordPress, check out the Pretty Link plugin.

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I think a plugin might be a bit heavy. I was hoping for something like this: https://github.com/mathiasbynens/php-url-shortener

    Not sure if it works locally, though.

    I think that link I posted above is the answer. Will update tomorrow after testing.

    So after I’ve installed the database and edited everything I needed to, I can’t seem to get it to work.

    ``

    It spits out the javascript instead of the actual short url.
