Tinyurl - bit.ly script

Posted by Honza, 09-04-2009, 05:35 AM
Hi all, could you help please? I'm looking for as advance tinyurl script as possible. I searched the net and all I found was just simple one. Ideal would be something using Ajax, control panel for admin and users. Easy to change the design... etc... Basically.. something with edge - something professional! Any ideas? Please? Thanks

Basically, you are looking for some kind of redirect script, right?

Yes, but with some nice users features too. Thanks

It may be hard to find something like this for free, but tr.im was/is planning on releasing their source code on Sept. 15th. I am not 100% sure if they still are, but that is what they stated a few weeks back. http://blog.tr.im/post/165049236/tr-...ommunity-owned

I saw a tutorial on sitepoint on making your own url shortener script on adobe coldfusion so you might want to check that out if you wanna do it on your own

I did a basic one at http://dmurl.info, as long as you know a bit of PHP and MySQL it shouldn't take more than a couple of hours to put something like mine together. I don't have an admin panel though, might crack on with that one day Only difference is mine gets rid of referrers whereas, well I don't think so anyway, the majority of other url shorteners don't do.

There's a few out there, but they all seem to be missing some features that others have, nothing seems to be all inclusive. I ended up writing my own at one point and setting it up as a service. It was a nice little project, and surprisingly, it seems to be used (somewhat) though mostly by (as far as I can tell) spammers. Hah. It really all depends on what features are the most important to you, and you can go from there as to which package would be the best. If you want a couple resources of reviews, let me know, and I'll see if I still have the research notes from the one I built (tracked down and tried to basically build whatever features all the others had into one single setup, heh.) Edit: The names I have off hand of other scripts are Phurl, Kissa.be, Shorty, Linx, PHPurl, though all their feature sets seemed quite limited to me. I'd even thought of some stuff that I'd not seen elsewhere. Last edited by WO-Jacob; 09-06-2009 at 11:48 PM. Reason: Added names of scripts
