    I wish I would have read reviews before I used this plugin. While it does the job of expanding shortened links and replacing the old Amazon account with the new one….it also destroys your entire site. For some reason it decides to convert all the apostrophies, quotes, and other punctuation to their unicode settings in the DB.

    When you run this plugin, every one of these punctuation marks (meaning all of them in your content…not just amazon links) get changed to something link ’ in the Database. The only way to fix it is to completely restore your DB. A major issue that happened to two of my sites that I used this on.

    Please read this review before you corrupt your entire site. A to the developer, please read these kinds of comments (I am not the only one reporting this) and either remove your plugin or fix it so you aren’t corrupting your users sites that trust you.
