FAQ

Getting a 404 error?

To get rid of the 404 error when viewing a hyperlink, you need to resave your permalink structure. Go to Settings > Permalinks and click “Save Changes”.

Can I change the URL structure to use something other than /go/ ???

Not without modifying the source code. We’re working on a premium version that allows custom slugs and more.

Will uninstalling the plugin remove all of my Easy Links?

Yes! If you click uninstall, this plugin removes all traces of its existence.

Why are the links generated using the ezLink shortcode nofollowed

According to Google, you need to make sure that any paid links on your site don’t pass PageRank. To do so, you need to make sure that any paid hyperlinks have the rel=”nofollow” attribute.
