    Hi ! Gerald ,

    I have a question related to the URL service change.

    I use bit.ly now and later after a month, If I add URL Service based on yourls. Would be the old short links be replaced by new Service? I mean, Do the new service automatically attempt to generate Shortlinks for all the posts replacing the old links or generating besides it?

    In simple words, I want to know what actually happens after switching the service

    And in other situation, what happens if I switch from Yourls wordpress plugin to URL Shortner(yours) plugin or vise -versa

    Thanks !

    Post with already generated shortlinks will have their links regenerated unless you delete the current shortlink...
    You can bulk delete your shortlinks via the admin panel...

    Switching from Yourls to URL Shortener, Yourls installation would be polled for the shortlink on first installation.... Yourls should already have generated the shortlink before so it should return the same value.
