Links will not work if you deactivate the plugin (4 posts)

    It seems to me that this plugin uses its own database to track the shortened links. So if you remove the plugin, all your links out in the world will no longer work.

    I'd rather use a services such as bitly that I'm more comfortable knowing they'll be around for a while.

    There's nothing "Wrong" with how this plugin works, thus why I'm giving it a medium star rating. And it's basically how bitly will work. But I decided to use a plugin that integrates with their (bitly's) services/database instead.

    Yes indeed ....
    It is just a design choice ... Thus the shorten links is based on your domain : but if you prefer bit.ly it is also a design choice and nothing wrong :)

    Sed, I think it's great what you've made - and it seems to have really powerful options, much more than other plugins probably have. So for those that want a really powerful option - I think this plugin is it... I think people just needed to know that the plugin shouldn't be de-activated once it's been in commission.

    All you say is correct I fully agree : the plugin should be keep activated for the shortlink to work
