The URL Shortener Gadget is a sidebar gadget which allows users to convert long URLs into shortened URLs. Users can then copy the shortened URL to the Clipboard or drag the shortened URL into the WYSIWYG Editor, Source Editor, or other document. Clicking the shortened URL directs the user to the page or directory defined by the original URL path.
While editing using the WYSIWYG Editor, a user can both drag a long URL to the gadget and the shortened URL back onto the WYSIWYG Editor to insert the link on the page. Clicking the now shortened URL directs the user to the page or directory defined by the original URL path. A shortened URL may also be entered manually using the Insert/Edit Link icon.
The shortened version of the link is now added to the page.
