Links to Web Proxy


Create a Web proxy for links in your WordPress CMS. This can be useful for Cross-Domain calls. The plugin also fixes most orginating content character encoding problems. I’ve used this plugin to create Web proxies for ArcGIS MapServers and to clean invalid characters from feeds.


  • The Settings > Links to Web Proxy Settings screen where you can grab the link proxy urls for allowed proxies.


  1. Extract to the plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. To allow a Web proxy for links, add/edit links with the category allow-proxy
  4. Go to the Settings > Links to Web Proxy Settings screen to grab the link URLs for links where the proxy is allowed


How do I fix problems with feeds which have invalid UTF-8 characters?

If the original feed sends a common character set in the header, then you should use the Clean ASCII Proxy Link.
