There are various url shortener services on the Internet, you can use free services such as bit.ly, tinyURL or create your own url shortener using some open sources. In this article, I’ll show you how to create a simple page that shows short urls created by multiple url shortener services. I’ll use HTML5, CSS3 for styling as well as jQuery for working with Ajax.
Chris Coyier has made a wonderful screencast about AJAXing WordPress theme. To AJAXify WordPress theme, he uses jQuery to make any internal link on the site will load into the main content area without requiring a page refresh, including search when the link is clicked. Althought the script works fine, it has 2 disadvantages: the internal links’ href property are changed (hashized) and the back/forward buttons are not supported. So I decided to improve the script to make the AJAX functionality better.
