Wesnoth forum short URLs

Post by Forum Moderators Team »

We now have short URLs that you can use to share links to forum threads or individual posts.

forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?t=24277 can now be r.wesnoth.org/t24277 (use the t= argument of the long url)

forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?p=461502#p461502 can now be r.wesnoth.org/p461502 (use the p= argument of the long url)

forums.wesnoth.org/viewforum.php?f=6 can now be r.wesnoth.org/f6 (use the f= argument of the long url)

forums.wesnoth.org/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=127023 can now be r.wesnoth.org/u127023 (use the u= argument of the long url)

Note the “t”, “p”, “f”, and "u" that come before the numbers in the short URL.

These shorter URLs are helpful for advertising your projects’ forum threads inside of your add-ons in-game where we don’t really have copy/paste support. They’re less daunting for people to write down or temporarily memorize.

You could also draw them inside of art, generate smaller QR codes with them, or use them anywhere with a character limit (such as your signatures).
