Bookmarklets

YOURLS comes with handy bookmarklets for easier link shortening and sharing.

Standard or Instant, Simple or Custom

If you want to share a description along with the link you're shortening, simply select text on the page you're viewing before clicking on your bookmarklet link

Important Note: bookmarklets may fail on websites with https, especially the "Instant" bookrmarklets. There is nothing you can do about this.

The Bookmarklets

Click and drag links to your toolbar (or right-click and bookmark it)

  Standard (new page) Instant (popup)

Social Bookmarklets

Shorten and share:

YOURLS & Facebook YOURLS & Twitter YOURLS & Tumblr

Prefix-n-Shorten

When viewing a page, you can also prefix its full URL: just head to your browser's address bar, add "pries.host/" to the beginning of the current URL (right before its 'http://' part) and hit enter.

Note: this will probably not work if your web server is running on Windows (which seems to be the case here).
