Support » Plugin: Edit Author Slug » Can I use this once and then uninstall?

    Hello,

    Your plugin is perfect for the problem I’m currently facing.

    However, I don’t like bloating my installation with too many plugins. Can I install this plugin, edit my author permalink display name and then remove the plugin while maintaining the changes?

    Or does it use function redirects that demand the plugin always be present so it works?

    Thank you.

    @soprano Sorry for the late response.

    The answer is it depends. If you’re changing the author base, then you need to keep the plugin around. If you’re only changing your author slug, then that change is persistent, and you are fine to deactivate and remove the plugin. This is actually how I use the plugin most often.
