The shorturl plugin offers a way to shorten the URI of your pages to a shorter version. This feature uses a base 36 number and the /s path. So the very first page receiving a short URI has extra path: /s/1. Going to /s on your website displays the last few short URIs that were generated.

The shorturl offers a signal so other plugins can prevent certain paths from being shorten. For example, paths under /admin do not need to be shorten since you will not share those paths.

At some point we will also offer inline support for third party shorteners. However, these have had bad rep and many have closed too. Unless your domain name is really long, there should be no need for such third party shorteners.
