      Description

      When working with WIKI we often need to get a short URLs for WIKI pages, unlike the current functionality which will produce only standard WIKI url.

      Say we have an WIKI page URL http://www.liferay.com/community/wiki/-/wiki/Main/Liferay+Core+Development+Guidelines, the WIKI Details page should provide an action link something like "Copy Shortcut URL" which will ideally give a shorter url something like http://<some-encoded-url> instead of the standard long one http://www.liferay.com/community/wiki/-/wiki/Main/Liferay+Core+Development+Guidelines

      This will be ideally useful when the users are posting the URLS in their tweets and other places where length of the field is very less.

      This quiet similar to how Atlassian Confluence/Twitter which provider shorter url funcitonalities.

        Hi Kamesh, interesting.
        Some comments here:
        This is already invented, as there are many url shorteners online: do you know what's the best way to implement this without having to reinvent the wheel?
        Why wiki? You may need it for wikis, but I guess this is interesting for all assets: in case we implement this, we should extend it to all assets in the portal
        Thanks for your ideas, man!

        Hi Juan,

        You are absolutely right, some of the URL shortners are in blacklist/spam list because of the redirections they do + you need to be online to avail the services hence thought that we could have it inhouse within portal domain so that we can avail it within corporate intranet or on offline mode.

        I totally agree with you if we can do it we should for all assets thats a great thing. Let me know if we can work together in do this feature .. if you have time so that I learn something from me working with you.

        Hi Kamesh:
        I can't work on this right now (I have other development priorities) but I can help and gide you in the design process.
        I have seen Drupal has something similar (http://drupal.org/project/shorten), so you may want to study their module.
        I would implement this as a plugin so that when you deploy it, you can see on every asset an option to get the shortened URL.
        A possible UI would be like what we have in the Doc Lib for docs URLs (see attached image)
        Regards!

        Hi Juan:
        No problem at all, I will work on this and might possibly need your help in reviewing my patch and other other guidance that i might look in from you with respect to the issue.

        Let me first study this drupal thing, and get back to you after I have a initial implementation of the same and we can then further brainstorm from there.
