I have same kinds of queries:
1- What if we update the plugin to new version, will that affect the existing links stored by the previous version?
2-How is this plugin better than the other plugin Gocodes which also have a decent amount of downloads?
3-I shouldn’t ask this but are there any plans where the lite version will be discontinued and only pro will be available which might help me to decide whether I should adopt this plugin for my affiliate programs.
1) If you update, nothing is lost — all data is stored in the database so upgrading the files has no affect on your data.
2) Haven’t used Gocodes so I can’t say. But Pretty Link rocks 😀
3) Pretty Link Lite (free edition) will be around for a long time. There are no plans to go Pro-only.
Last reply solved all of my queries. I am using this plugin on my both the websites Monkshouts.org and also MSM-Foundation.org and it worked great without any trouble.
Thanks for the great plugin.
After reading above Q&As, I still worry about “see a 404 page”, with 2 following queries:
1- If I change my website to another hosting and upload wp code/database again, What happens to the links I created with Pretty Link ?
2- If I deactivate or uninstall the plugin THEN active it again, Are all pretty links closed ?
Thanks a lot for your supporting.
My wordpress blogs will work fine with your Pretty Link for marketing tracking.
But for all my sale/landing pages using Blogger platform because of unlimited pages with free google hosting such as Blogger Landing Page, I don’t want to pay monthly for limited link tracking service. So, do you have any one time payment apps for blogger tracking same as Pretty Link, please let me know soon.
I know this is an old thread, but hoping you can help. We migrated our site to new servers and when I reactivated pretty link all of our old links are missing. We moved everything in the wp-content folder, would the database tables that the plugin needs have been in that folder or somewhere else? If you could provide a location to search that would be wonderful!
All the best,
Your web host operates the MySQL database as a separate service, so you’d need to access it via something like phpMyAdmin and export the prli_* tables. Hopefully you still have access to the old hosting setup?
