Hi there,

Would obfuscating my quicklink url with tinyurl or another url shortening service effect functionality?

Cheers,
Nick

It probably depends on the redirection service. Some URL redirection services use Javascript for the redirection. Since most bots don't follow Javascript, they'd likely not make it to your QuickLink. If the service uses an Apache-style redirect then it would probably work.

All that said, I'm not sure why you'd want to obfuscate your QuickLink's URL.

Cool Thanks, so tinyurl should work....
