The ability to create new URLs is temporarily out of service

Short URLs already in the system will continue to work.

Always test your long URL before shortening it. If it doesn't work as a long URL, it won't work as a short URL either.
A shortened URL will not give off-campus people access to on-campus resources.
If you have a tiny URL to begin with, I might not necessarily make it any shorter.
If you shorten an https:// URL, the short URL will be http:// and it will correctly redirect to the https:// long URL.
Always test your short URLs after generating them.
