Description from the Publisher

Create your own Short Url Site

Responsive Layout

The theme supplied with the short url script has been designed to work across all platforms. Wurlie's layout uses the latest CSS techniques to remove or resize page elements dependant on the users device.

It's been fully tested with following:

  • Mobile - iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows.
  • Tablet - iPad, Android tablets.
  • Desktop PC.

Shorten Multiple Urls

Users can enter long urls and create shortened versions that redirect to the original link. Copy & Paste or manually enter long urls in bulk. As long as they are separated on a new line they'll be generated their own short url.

When entering urls, the url input field automatically resizes to allow for more links.

Each generated url has:

  • Detailed information page for each url.
  • Stats page link.
  • QR code.
  • Unique hashed delete link.
  • Choose from delayed, top/bottom framed or direct redirects when the short url is loaded.

Earn Money

Easy Ads - Use the admin interface to easily integrate your banner ads or other advert network code. The short url script supports Google Adsense aswell as most other popular ad providers.

Via the admin area you can easily ad the following advert code:

  • Site footer ads across the site.
  • Iframe redirect top/bottom advert.
  • Delayed redirect top advert.
  • Delayed redirect bottom advert.

Url Options

Aswell as shortening multiple long urls at the same time, each short url can also be set with the following:

  • Users can enter a custom short url part.
  • Set maximum short url uses option.
  • Set expiry date option for urls.
  • Set access password for urls.
  • Set url public or private. (public is available in the 'recent urls' listing, private isn't linked anywhere on the site publicly)

Developers API

An advanced API which provides access to your own applications (or customers applications) to urls on the Wurlie site.

Each account is provided with an API key which means they can make remote requests to the site for the following:

  • Create - Create urls.
  • Disable - Deactivate urls.
  • Activate - Enable urls.
  • List - List urls.

The API can respond in either of 2 data formats:

  • JSON
  • XML

There is also built in security to avoid too many API requests per minute as well as the standard validation on urls.

Malware & Phishing Protection

If you've set your Phishtank & Google Safe Browsing API keys (free to get via their sites), every long url which is submitted will be checked as to whether it has been reported as a suspected malware or phishing link.

If it exists on either site an error message is shown and the script does not create the short url. This check is completed for both the front-end website and any short urls created via the API.

Secure Members Area

Users can register for a free account via the short url site. All account passwords are sent via email to validate the email address they've registered with.

Each registered Wurlie member gets the following:

  • An area to view, search and manage all of their short urls.
  • Links to detailed statistics for each short url.
  • Options to disable short urls.
  • Links to share.
  • Links to view the qr code.
  • An API key for API access.

There is also a forgot password screen which sends an email to the account holder in order to reset a forgotten password.

  • Visiting operating systems.

Social Network Sharing

Once a short url has been generated, users can copy & paste the url into a forum, send via email or immediately post the link to social networking sites using addthis. These include:

  • Facebook.
  • Twitter.
  • Email.
  • StumbleUpon.
  • Blogger.
  • Tumbler.

QR codes are automatically generated for all urls. They can then be downloaded and used in print or web material and will revert to your short url when scanned.

Most modern smart phones have the ability to scan QR codes, either built in or via a downloadable applications.
