Shortening links


Recommended Posts

I open a support ticket to ask if there's a way to short long urls automatically, the support team answered they used to do it in the past but it's not clear to me why they removed that, since I am a new client. Does anyone know a way I can limit the size of any url so it works when clicked but it displays something like "..." after a number of characters?

Can you clarify what you mean? How would a long URL show "..." after it is clicked? Do you mean like instead of

(which is this topic's URL) if this were too long it would show in the address bar

What he's probably referring to is the way IPB 3.x and lower used to work
