Wiki URL Shortener Extension

Introduction

The Wiki URL Shortener allows you to create short URLs for any page on projects hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation, in order to reuse them elsewhere, for example on social networks or on wikis. The URL shortener only accepts links that are in WMF-based domains, so no external website can be linked.
