I recently updated some of my links to give them custom names, and also moved my server from testing to production– getting rid of the old “test” subdomain.
Is it possible to make a batch process that would go through and check for updated shortlinks in the YouRLs database and change them in wordpress? And also maybe adding a similar function in the meta box for individual posts?
For example let’s say I have a post with the URL “example.com/12/18/my-post” and wp_shortlink fired and YouRLs returned the link “exam.pl/12”. I want to change it 3 days later to “exam.pl/mypost” because its easy to remember, so I do it within the YouRLs admin panel, However the post will not get the updated shortlink, and I can’t manually change it without doing some SQL diving.
Also is it possible to change the shortlinking action to use the regular wordpress URL format even though we’re using “pretty URLs”? (using “example.com/?p=123” as the link passed to YouRLs to shorten as opposed to “example.com/12/16/my-post”)
Thanks in advance for your consideration.
