I tried the tool but seems it’s not live yet. I get the following response whenever I entered a new url.


#3

Sorry for that! There’s actually a delay when transfering information to database, so you got this error because of this. I will tackle this problem in the future, so that it is a little more user friendly! Thanks for your feedback!

I have tried it again but I get no valid url. Also, the interface is hard to work with.


#5

Well, the interface is better than the problem wants you to have.

shortUrl is what you will append to the site’s name:

For example, if you get this:
{“originalUrl”:“http://www.something.com”,“shortUrl”:“93770”,"_id":“5963c5df14518002d5b12ab2”}
Then, the shortened version would be:
https://satin-smoke.glitch.me/93770

Though, I agree that it is one of the aspects that should be improved.
Thanks once again! :slight_smile:


#6

I get it now. You should maybe mention it on the page. It will be helpful to new users.


#7

As per your suggestion, did that :slight_smile:
Thank you for your time that you have spent checking this out! :blush:
