Yesterday I purchased the domain stps.me to be able to shorten URLs for my other website setups.co.

I found two modules, Shorten URLs and ShURLy, that were able to shorten URLs.

However, I can't find the option to use my own domain name, and therefore I'm asking you for help.

I know there's a free tool to make your own URL shortening service called Yourls, but I can't figure out how to implement this to Drupal to automatically shorten and display a URL when I upload new nodes.

Thanks in advance :)

  • I'm not quite sure I understand the "use my own domain name" part. You want yoursite.com/shorturl? You would use Pathauto for that.

  • @beth I want to make short URLs like "stps.me/xRgD" for the URL "setups.co/node/1" as an example. Commented Feb 6, 2013 at 13:48
  • @Clive That module is only available for Drupal 6, I use 7. Commented Feb 6, 2013 at 13:48
  • There's very little to it though, would be easy to take the shortening logic out and put it in a small custom module

Found this module, Yourls, that works exactly like I described above.
