If your Joomla! ecommerce site has a long URL like this

http://www.yourstore.com/shop/categories/sale-off/christmas-sale

Why don't make it shorter like this before sharing it on Facebook, Twitter or forums

http://www.yourstore.com/off/christmas

If the long URL is changed, you can simply change it in CM Short URL and the short URL http://www.yoursite.com/go/chrismas-sale still works and takes your customers to the correct page for Christmas products.

The short URL is easier to remember, easier to share while talking, easier and faster to type in mobile devices.

Technical requirements

CM Short URL is compatible 3.x.x. CM Short URL is NOT compatible with Joomla! 1.x.x and 2.x.x.

Features

  • Create short URL with random alias or your own alias.
  • Add UTM parameters of Google Analytics to URL before shortening.
  • Track how many times short URL is visited.
  • Log user's info like IP address, browser, operating system and referral website for every tracked visit.
  • Easy to disable logging and Google Analytics integration if you don't use them.
