I've piked on the WordPress plugin (well, it's on the back burner) for the time being, and just doing some other stuff.
One thing I've done is bought a funky new URL to make a shortener out of. So I spent some time on Domai.nr to see what I could find that was short, and still made sense.
What I ended up coming up with was http://g.rff.me/
So then what… How do you make a PHP based URL Shortener.
After using some Google-Fu, I found Free PHP URL shortener script that kicks ass.
Yeah, so what?… Well, I thought I'd explain what I'd gone through with setting it up, and what I discovered along the way.
So I have some basic plans for it… nothing much for the time being, but we'll see how it turns out.
