Worried About Clicking On A Bit.Ly Link? Follow This Tip. 6 years 6 months ago Nodrog

Great tip, Rob. Can I also offer a couple for non-Bit.Ly shortened URLs that I use.

In Firefox, there is the Unshorten.It! extension which adds this option to the context menu.

Also, you can use this bookmarklet which opens a pop-up for you to copy/paste the short URL in to see the full address -

javascript:(function()%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20{%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20xraybm=document.createElement('SCRIPT');%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20xraybm.type='text/javascript';%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20xraybm.src='http://urlxray.com//bookmarklet.js';%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(xraybm);%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20}%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20)();

Somehow I'm missing the point here. You talk about bit.ly? but not how to use it. Are there other alternatives? I'll google search. It's a PITA to use the long urls I agree.

I use the Firefox extension Long URL Please. It automatically converts short URLs to the original in the web page. No need to click or do anything. Works on bit.ly, tinyurl, google URL shortener, and others.

@exbioman:
A wee little bit of reading on Bitly's home page (bitly.com) shows you a link to "Help". There you find more than you ever wanted to know about Bitly.

And have you had the idea to try a Wikipedia search?

Nice bookmarklet, Nodrog.

Pull all of those spaces (%20) out and shorten that script to -

javascript:(function(){xraybm=document.createElement('SCRIPT');xraybm.type='text/javascript';xraybm.src='http://urlxray.com//bookmarklet.js';document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(xraybm);})();

It makes the new window properly formatted.

I've added it to my bag of tricks. Thanks.

Glad you like it. I can't remember where I found it but credit to the originator anyway.

I should also have said that you can use it by highlighting the shortened URL first then click on the bookmarklet.

Since there are so many URL shortening services around, it might be better to write an article about "universal" URL expansion techniques: websites and extensions that can show the full URL from multiple shortening sites (e.g. tinyurl.com, bitly.com, is.gd, goo.gl, tiny.cc, t.co, etc). Oxa and Nodrog have already mentioned two extensions and bookmarkets. Another good site is longurl.org.

@Nodrog:
It's a bookmarklet that comes from the web site http://urlxray.com (the url is right in the script). Almost no information there about their service, though.

@ak47wong:
You have a good suggestion for an article.

FWIW, URL XRay seems very complete. I jumped on to Twitter and it successfully expanded every short URL that I saw and threw at it, including bit.ly and bitly.com URLs.

WPS Office Free 3 years 5 months ago Jim North

While WPS Office Free is indeed free, it seems to come with a couple of restrictions. After downloading and installing "Free," I found that printing is disabled. It can be temporarily enabled by watching an advert, but to get full printing functionality, one must purchase a license for the "Business" version. Also, according to the version comparison chart on the website, there appear to be some mandatory watermarking provisions with the "Free" version.

After uninstalling "Free," I downloaded and installed the "Beta" version. It seems to have no restrictions at all, and printed a document just fine. So I'll continue using "Beta" and see if any stability issues crop up over time.

That's a bummer.

WPS Office Free 3 years 5 months ago George.J Are you sure this is the case? Because from what I've seen, you can print the document but it watermarks the document when printing to paper or to PDF. Also you cannot save to newer formats (.docx, .xlsx) which can be done with Kingsoft Office 9.1.0.4550 that doesn't watermark too. So this is the current best free version to date that can be obtained from Filehippo. view
