# Description

Create your own fully integrated URL shortener for your posts, pages and custom post types.

Shortcode `[short-url]` or `*function azrcrv_urls_get_custom_shortlink` can be called from themes or other plugins to retrieve the custom short URL.

Example shortcode usage:
“`echo do_shortcode(‘[short-url]‘);“`

Example function usage:
“`
if (function_exists(‘azrcrv_urls_get_custom_shortlink’)){
printf(‘ <span class=”short-link”>%s</span>’, ‘<a href=”‘.azrcrv_urls_get_custom_shortlink().'” title=”Shortlink to ‘.the_title_attribute(‘echo=0′).'” rel=”bookmark”>’.’Shortlink’.'</a>’);
}
“`

Settings page allows options for short URL generation to be configured.

This plugin is multisite compatible; each site will need settings to be configured in the admin dashboard.
