Arrow Re: bit.ly

Ignore the "+" See what happens when you just use the rest of the Link on its own Tip: Right Click on the Link and see where the raw Go to bit.ly/...Takes you
I use Goo.gl (ex Chrome browser) also TinyURL.com to make up links and
Yes some people write those down as +https://goo.gl/SbwQXP or + https://tinyurl.com/ybzjcadk Do try this pair to Bring you back Here to the Posting window for this thread .
Bit.ly when working right (NO +!) will do the exact same thing as the " URL Shortener "links above
You're Welcome.

Default Re: bit.ly

Hi dumtop2 and welcome to WU!

If you want to use bit.ly yourself, this is a link to their site which will explain how to set it up and use it:

Bitly | URL Shortener and Link Management Platform

If you want to go to a bit.ly site shown in Web User, just type it as shown in the magazine into your browser's Location/Address Bar, press Enter, and you'll be taken to the relevant site.
