[resolved] Pretty Link won't work (2 posts)

    Hi, I just installed Pretty Link to try and mask my affiliate link, but it won't mask. I've put in my affiliate link url as the one to make pretty and the redirect which all seems to work from the pretty link dashboard.
    When I click on my affiliate link the whole affiliate url still shows up in the status bar and in the url bar

    Do you have to pay for this feature?
    Also most of the plugins eg pretty-bar.php seem to be inactive. Sorry I'm new to WordPress and all this so I might be doing something stupid, but I can't see any benefit to this plugin. Also what the pretty bar anyway?
    thanks

    Pretty Link creates a short URL but it won't automatically replace it inside your affiliate link for you. You need to copy the Pretty Link and overwrite the HTML inside of your affiliate link with it.
