does this auto generate short urls for every weblog you post, or do you have to manually set each one up as you publish it?

I swear this thing has been known to the world for just a few hours and this is the third request we have seen for the feature you describe. I hope to build this feature in within the next 2 weeks or so.

There, are you happy PieMan? The people have spoken.

Haha - I know that I am one of those!  Sorry Mitchell - I know its a never ending stream of Feature Requests.  I realize auto shortening maybe a major addition- but I was under the impression that, that was part of this module.  I think you could easily justify a price increase with that feature too.  $20 is too cheap. Seriously.

We’ll be sure to charge you $95 when it’s available grin

Just off the top of my head- it seems like this is a case where a site with 1000s of shortcuts could overun memory limits- like *ahem* tracker *ahem* ahem*

Yes… but I don’t think comparing the 2 is comparing the same thing. smile

Would be good if this (auto generate on weblog entry) also included a box where custom short url could be typed as you can do in the module settings. And perhaps tags so this link can be put in a template for a weblog entry so users get a short permalink link at the end of a post.

What about support for LG Twitter (i.e. make it easy for LG & co. to implement) / a FR for LG Twitter to support this? That would be excellent!

So wait a minute.. you mean to tell me that you guys are manually making shortcuts for each of your new blog posts and software pages?  Really?  I just need confirmation for my Solspace book coming out next spring.

Mitchell’s not allowed to speaking publicly about release dates anymore grin

It’s on the roadmap, but we’ve prioritized a few other critical updates to other addon’s first smile

Yeah.  I’d buy this if it automatically did shortcuts for entries.


ie:

site.com/34543

(34543 is entry id)

that’s what I need.

And another request for this feature smile

Even if it didn’t auto gen for EVERY entry, a faster way to create them on the publish form would be great.
