What is YOURLs url shortener exactly ?

Hey Philippe, YOURLs is a small set of PHP scripts that helps to shortening EasyBlog social share url. Example, normal blog url will be something like http://easyblog.local/index.php/blog/surfing-in-the-sky but with YOURLs, it would just be http://easy.lg/1

@Mark where are the settings in the backend for the YOURLs feature? Or how does this work in EasyBlog?

We have already added the documentation for this at https://stackideas.com/docs/easyblog/administrators/configuration/yourls
