Shorten Links

Post by jthspace » Fri Oct 20, 2017 11:47 am

If you are posting links that are very long, then you can shorten them by using an on-line utility like TINYURL

For example - the link to AMAZON looked like this

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01 ... 1499985031
has a length of 240 characters and resulted in the following TinyURL which has a length of 28 characters:

The shortened link looked like this

Try it out - it's easy and takes seconds.
