Scripture reference URL shortener

Postby brentboylan » Thu Feb 13, 2014 10:36 am

Any plans on making it easier to share links to scriptures through social websites? I would love to tweet using l.ds/1Ne3.7 (11 characters) or lds.org/go/1Ne3.7 (17 characters) instead of https://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/1-ne/3.7?lang=eng#6 (55 characters).

Until that happens you could use one of the free URL shortening services out there like tinyURL. I entered your example and ended up with this URL: http://tinyurl.com/nwvbpnr .

Well, for starters, you could eliminate "https://www." from the beginning and "?lang=eng" from near the end to knock that 55 characters down to 34. But even shorter URLs would certainly be handy, particularly for tweets.
