Reviews for Shorty URL shortener

24 Reviews

Very BAD Script:

The plugin doesn’t work with SSL.

I have this alerte:

jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:4 Mixed Content: The page at ‘' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure XMLHttpRequest endpoint ‘'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.

You must change all the http to https in your files
In the folder inc -s file integration.php
change the string
‘ajaxurl’ => admin_url(‘admin-ajax.php’, ‘http’),
‘ajaxurl’ => admin_url(‘admin-ajax.php’, ‘https’),

I asked for support, never had.
I Asked for a refund, stil waiting.

Hello! Please drop me a direct message from my profile page - there's a problem with the archive available at CodeCanyon and it does not update when I upload it for some reason. I'll just send you a correct version.

for Feature Availability

- Easy to style;
- Does what it's supposed to;
- Lightweight;
- Works on SSL sites;

- Limited statistics/analysis;
- Doesn't save generated links after browser cache clear (makes it pretty useless to developers);
- Slow to generate links;

It works for the core purpose of shortening links but there's limited statistics and analysis for the links which makes it less useful and the time it takes both to generate the links and to redirect to them is unfortunate.

Best plugin of it's kind on Envato but a few issues with the execution.

Hello! Thanks for your feedback, but I think it is not correct to blame the plugin for not having features if they are not promoted. Unfortunately, the market for this plugin is pretty small so I just can't invest my time to develop more professional analytics and more complex features. So Shorty's features are a bare minimum that saves you dev time. But not a Google shortener's competitor.
