    I can't seem to get the pretty link to work. I made a pretty link, replaced the affiliate link with pretty link on my wordpress page and when I refresh and click on link it works to direct to affiliate page but it shows the old affiliate link in the search bar instead of the pretty link. I thought the idea was to have the pretty link show in search bar!! What did I do wrong

    Hi Shawndee,
    Pretty Link allows you to shorten long, ugly affiliate links so that your users are more likely to click on them. I'm more likely to click on a link that appears to be related to the site I'm visiting then I am if it looks like a nasty affiliate link.

    That being said, the feature you are looking for is called "cloaking" which is available in Pretty Link Pro. Cloaking is against many merchant's TOS though, so be sure it's allowed/supported from your merchants first.
