With the release of Commons 1.5, members can set up easy-to-remember, short URLs that link to their profiles, sites, groups, docs, or posts. Once set up, the urls will all begin with “http://cuny.is/”
On a member’s Commons Portfolio, there is an automated way to do this, using the textbox shown below. Quick Links for Commons Portfolios will initially be populated with members’ usernames, but the dialog below lets members change the URL to something else, as long as it is not already taken.
Short URLs for other links on the Commons have not been automated as yet. If you want to set one up, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org containing the URL you want to link to and the proposed quick link.
