Hello,

 

Is it possible to automatically shorten/minify liquid links? We'd like to use short links in SMS order messages.

 

For ex: {{ order.order_status_url | minify }}

 

Or is there a general "shorten links" setting that can apply to order messages?

Hello, have you looked into using an app like SMSBump. I believe one of its functions is link shortening. Or as an alternative you could copy the long link into something like Bitly.com and get a shortened link to use in the message, but that's something you would have to do for each message.

Thanks! To clarify, we're looking for a way to automatically shorten URLS that are generated by Shopify during the order/checkout process, so that when a customer receives SMS confirmation, they get a tidy and short URL. This would help save characters + creates nicer CX
