Ways to shorten urls.There are two simple ways to make shorter urls for inclusion in email, or wherever long ones are cumbersome.1) Many long urls have information appended on the end that you don't need to get to the site. Look for a question mark ("?") and delete it and everything after it. Now reload to test. Ninety-nine percent to the time the shortened url will still take you to where you want to go.Example: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/20/movies/little-women-inspirations.html?mc=aud_dev&ad-keywords=auddevgate&subid1=TAFI&ad_name=INTER_20_XXXX_XXX_1P_CD_XX_XX_SITEVISITXREM_X_XXXX_COUSA_P_X_X_EN_FBIG_OA_XXXX_00_EN_JP_NFLINKS&adset_name=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2F2019%2F12%2F20%2Fmovies%2Flittle-women-inspirations.html&campaign_id=23844139834030063&fbclid=IwAR1KGHTd5D-skq4aLUmg5gLQpuXv0uslsArk2iD-I8aFi5Nbc401MxI1w3obecomes https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/20/movies/little-women-inspirations.html2) Copy the url and got to https://tinyurl.com/. Paste the long url into the box, enter, and it will give you a short one that goes to the same place. The above long monster becomes *https://tinyurl.com/ygspbchx*.I hope this helps Linda Hobbet * *It was formatted as a list of 20 links to articles but the URLs were 1000+ byte long tracking URLs which are unreasonable to show in a text based media like Cohousing-L.
