    Hi MDBitz.

    Thanks for the great plugin, exactly what I was searching for.

    But I have little problem. I wanted to check if localization works and tried to open my site through proxy services like http://5.hidemyass.com/ip-1, http://www.daveproxy.co.uk or http://goproxing.com and my links aren't there. They simply disappear. Do You know what is going on. I'm little concerned that no everyone will have the possibility to click my links.

    Hi,

    I don't have access to proxy services while at work. Please let me know what your website is and I'll take a look this evening to see if I can track down why the links are not rendering.

    Thanks,

    HI again, I've looked at a few proxy sites and as it turns out they each support different functionality with some sites supporting javascript and others not. At this time I have decided to not pursue this issue any further.

    So javascript is the thing here? If a visitor's browser support javascript, he'll see the links, if not he won't?

    No, JavaScript isn't used for generating links it is all done in php and rendered as an a tag. I'll need to take a closer look but i do believe I had defaulted the behavior so that if a product does not exist for a geo-locale it renders instead the text in side the ShortCode but I'll have to confirm and if so update it so that if the product doesn't exist the default locale is used instead.
