Ever experienced someone posting a huge URL on your comment section? Those long strings are not only ugly, but they might also break the design of your website on certain browsers.
The best solution for this problem is a WordPress plugin called WP-Chunk. It will basically transform a long URL like this:
into a smaller string like this:
Does it process your existing comments or comments after install?
that’s a nice plugin, tnx
Testing for it

I wanna try it out:
“Apparently though some clean IPs are getting blocked wrongly, you might want to check it out.”
Okay, this might be a little picky, but you in the example you gave in the post the last three characters were “86C” where it should have been “56C”
Whoo, thanks for stopping by. Alright I will not put the plugin up for download, now the issue is clarified.
Anyone having trouble with accessing the page is experiencing it because I _strictly_ require that you send a proper referer, and yes, I do actively block several IP ranges that are typically associated with being spammy.
hank you for the kind words however, Please do NOT host my plugins on your site.
The download page is working fine for me. Strange, let me know if you guys keep having this problem and I might upload the plugin on my server directly.
Hey Daniel thanks for the wonderful tip! I’ll be using it very soon but yes, The download page is down … any other alternate source to download?
Something is wrong w/ the homepage of the plugin. All I see is “PISS OFF!”
Cristi, yeah you can configure the number of characters that the URL must have in order to get chuncked, and how many characters the output will have.
Nice … I was wondering if those URLs were shrunken manually each time. Can you set the maximum length? (I have a blog with a very thin comment box)
That is how it will look in the comments:
