Component using short phrases to redirect the user to a specific website or article. Links to articles or external sites are shortened like this (the example will lead to the joomla homepage.): http://www.gesellix.de/goto.php?link=joomla
'shortlink' is the short phrase defined to lead the visitor to another url or article.
Statistics about the number of hits for all shortlinks can be found in the backend. The optional module may be configured to either let the visitor enter the phrase or to choose one from the complete list of available shortlinks.
When using Shortlink, you may also find the content plugin "TitleLink" useful. TitleLink comes with included support for this component! See the JED page for details.
