gator_rider2, long url or http addresses converted

loger_gwFebruary 7, 2013

gator_rider2 & Others,

Will you help me with this task? How are long url or http addresses as below converted to short addresses or titles (as I notice yours are)? In some cases I have seen the addresses changed without my knowing or effort. Such as, can you convert the long address below to a shorter address or title and how is it done??

IF you are only posting ONE URL, paste it into the "Optional Link URL:" and give it a name in the "Name of the Link:" box.

Like the link below should bring you right back here?

Thanks bill_kapaun! My example is with my long URL address below I would like shortened. I will note the two steps for future use (copy and paste link, add new title).

Most sites have short URL, but if go around looking on that site they can get page in this take to splitter your was compare 2 Log splitter.

I use yahoo search engine because newer than google I keep internet explore just make yahoo main one this way it load internet explore in different window. And load with Google Chrome all this because I don't know what I'm doing lol.

Thanks gator_rider2! This One Eyed Monster can be a challenge, to keep up with if you have limited time and skills. It's always my challenge to find answers or look for tips before asking personally. BUT! At a point it does not hurt to ask for help. I probably need to go back and look at more of the site's info. Versus the googling and challenging local friends I saw use titles (Check Here!).

Last (Gator, Bill and All), will some sites automatically generate short URL addresses or titles when a long address is added?
