Short links

From AniDB
Jump to navigation Jump to search

AniDB supports a number of short links that links to different aspects of the database, they are meant as a convenience for linking to information on AniDB. So for example, instead of having a link that looks like this: http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=animelist&adb.search=Hachimitsu&do.search=search

Which might not even work correctly if, say, the anime gets a sequel; in which case that link would lead to a search page listing both those anime. What you rather should do instead is link to the actual anime page for the anime. Such a link always contains an aid, or an anime id. For Hachimitsu to Clover that aid is 2835, and the link would look like this: http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=2835

Now, if you use short links the link is even more convenient: http://anidb.net/a2835

Let's review. We have the search-link, the anime link, and the short link:

You can use whichever you like, but for convenience, isn't the short link easier to use and remember (as long as you remember the aid)? Now, it isn't only to anime pages that AniDB sports short links, most things you can think of also have short links.
