Important message

Writeurl will cease being hosted. Unfortunately, we have decided to stop hosting Writeurl. The application has always been free to use and many users have benefited from it. However, development on it stopped several years ago, and hosting it is a continuous expense for us both financially and time wise. Unfortunately, we have also had problems with people abusing the application to host illegal content. All in all it does not make sense for us to provide free hosting anymore.
The Writeurl code is open source and is available at Writeurl. We encourage anyone to self host it.
Write access to the application will be taken away soon. Read access to existing documents will be maintained until the end of February 2021.
