This extension is designed for the Content Management System eZPublish. Its aim is to provide a simple system that will allow users to get short urls of an article, a folder, a video or any content.

The features are :

 

  • Integrated system of urls filter : a key of 4 characters is generated at the publication time and added into the URL. As it's unique for a node ID, it can match Google News requirements (limited to first version). For ex :

 

http://my.domain.com/Solutions/Web-publishing/Bastille

Turned in :

http://my.domain.com/Solutions/Web-publishing/Bastille-004v

 

  • Accessible module that handles the key :

 

http://my.domain.com/us/view/004v

Redirect to :

http://my.domain.com/Solutions/Web-publishing/Bastille-004v

 

  • Operator to encrypt / decrypt a key,
  • Specific configuration for Apache can reduce the number of characters,
  • Special template that contains an url of the short url, useful for mobile interface and lazy people.
