dlvr.it now supports popular url shorteners su.pr, migre.me, cli.gs, is.gd and many more! In fact, you can now utilize any third party shortening service that provides API access and returns the shortened URL in plain text format.
Support for these new shorteners is in addition to dlvr.it’s existing support for bit.ly, bit.ly pro, and your own custom domains. You publish, and we’ll deliver your content using your favorite link shortener!
To start using a third party shortener:
1. Log into dlvr.it
2. Go to Settings > Short Links
3. Select “+Add shortener”
4. Choose “3rd Party Shortener”
5. Enter a name for the shortening service.
We suggest using the short url domain. For instance, if you are using su.pr short links, we recommend using the name su.pr.
6. Add the URL dlvr.it should use for communicating with your shortening service’s API.
Replace the actual URL in the API request with the macro @URL@ (make sure URL is all caps). For instance, if you are using su.pr to shorten links: http://su.pr/api/simpleshorten?url=@URL@
You may include as many parameters in the API request as necessary. For instance:
dlvr.it expects responses from the API to be in a plain text format such as: http://su.pr/abc123
At this time, we’re not processing JSON or XML formatted responses.
