    Hello guys,

    I miss, for various purposes, the existence of any shortlink integration website ( bit.ly, goo.gl, for example) to generate shortlinks for posts when they are created.

    With with, we can add to many addons that actually exists those links to be shared and then we can easly track the clicks and its way better looking than sharing the whole link.

    The addon would simply use the integration to generate the thread URL and then put it as a field like $title, $url as "$shortLink" for example.

    I just made some research around this and collected some evidences.

    Goo.gl api page: Getting Started
    Bit.ly api link generation page: Bitly API Documentation

    I mentioned about generating a $shortlink variable but itscommonly used as {shortlink} here on xenforo.

    I actually had an add-on that built short links on v1. Wonder if I can still find that... Probably would need updated & expanded.
