Just bumping this request. I can offer a bounty for this add-on if anyone can take it on. I basically want to block any shortened url from being posted.

Are you two both asking for different things?

The first person seems to want a widget that will shorten the URL of any page on the forum, whereas you, Coop1979, seem to be wanting to block shortened URLs from being posted.

Can I ask why you would want to block shortened URLs from being posted?

Haha, you're right. I'm sorry, I mis-read the OP's request. I want to block shortened URLs because 1) they mask the actual source, 2) unscrupulous people can post links to sites we don't allow being linked to, and 3) it circumvents our monetization efforts.
