    hey,

    i'm dumb with this, so, please try to explain me as if you're explaining to a kid, i'd appreciate:

    i want my links to look like url.com/goto/prettylink but all i get is url.com/prettylink. how do i place /goto/ before the automatically created prettylink slug?

    depending on your answer i will ask something else related (to an expected answer), so, please reply the question above first.

    thanks!

    the second question: when i delete posts, the pretty links on that posts do not get deleted. so, let's say i have 20k posts and i renew them each month. how do i then delete the pretty links which would no longer be used? do will they just remain there forever and create a big mess of a database for unused links? if i delete and reinstall it, will the database tables be cleaned of that?

    Just add goto/ in front of the slug when creating your links.

    The links will need to be manually removed currently. Deactivating the deleting the plugin will not cleanse the database of the links.

    If you're a Pro user, will you please submit your request here: http://prettylinkpro.com/premium-support-request/

    The moderators here do not like Premium support questions in their forums. Thanks!

    The best way to prevent google from indexing a directory is through your robots.txt file. There's a great plugin for allowing you to manage it here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-robots-txt/
