Custom shortened URLs list

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Wed Feb 19, 2014 8:33 pm

I know there are several bit.ly and other shortened URLs we toss around from time-to-time to users, like http://bit.ly/WazeFAQ. Not sure exactly of the use for general users, but I would welcome knowing/documenting the custom/shortened URLs for Wazey things.

If you know one, post it here. If there's enough to bother creating a wiki page on it, then we can do so.

Hmmm... One of the problems with bit.ly is that you are never allowed to change the full URL. So the vanity URLs will always point to the same place. :/

Seems like a good list to put into a table into the Wiki and keep adding as we go.

Any Wiki page name proposals for this table?

Thoughts:
Code: Select all
[[Custom Shortened URLs]]
[[Short URLs]]
[[Custom URLs]]
[[Shortened URLs]]
[[Tiny URLs]]
[[Quick Links]]
[[Quick URLs]]


We can of course make all of the above automatically redirect to this new page.

We will make it trancludable so other pages can just use {{:Custom Shorteded URLs}} and get just the table from the page.

We could also create a shortened URL to the new page of shortened URLs. :mrgreen:

I started the page. https://www.waze.com/wiki/Short_URLs.

Still need to add all the other redirects to it. Also needs to have the "names" of the links added. Anyone is welcome to pick up the page and continue where i left off. I already see I forgot Alan's last entry.

I completed the table, but there are a number of these that are linked to the wrong thing. They also appear to have been created a long time ago when the Wiki used different formatting to get to pages. We don't need the "index" element in the URL, so that is also possibly throwing off some links.

I won't be able to fix the short URLs, so maybe someone else can do that and then update the table.

All the other Redirects I mentioned are also completed.

Can we get new vanity URLs? Or are these URLs in use all over?

In case I was not clear, some of the vanity URLs go to places that seem completely unrelated to the name in the vanity URL. In other cases it is just not perfect on the page.

Should we create a short URL for the new Forum Etiquette page I just posted?
