CANNOT DELETE
By , for WP 4.1.1

Once you make a pretty link and delete you can never use it again.
The author says to make sure there are no pages, posts, tags, categories connected to the link.

I did that also went into the database to delete them and there are NOT there.

This is a great tool but after a little while all your links are screwed. (After testing it ALL my Vanities were dead)

Go somewhere else for another solution.

I have purchased the PRO VERSION and there is ZERO SUPPORT.
All the threads pertaining to this issue have been closed.

The author states it is resolved - But when you go see the threads you will see that is NOT TRUE.

Short nice links much easier to remember
By , for WP 4.1.1

I use these short links quite a bit. My site has a 4 character url so having short meaningful pretty links is a huge asset for me. Love the program.

Works Great, Does the Job
By , for WP 4.1.1

This did exactly what I needed it to do. No complaints here. :-)

Can't create new links
By , for WP 4.1.1

I've used this plugin successfully in the past, however on a new install / new site I can't create new links, and this error message appears on every page if I turn on WP_DEBUG:

WordPress database error: [Table 'wp_thewebsite.wp_prli_links' doesn't exist]
SELECT * FROM wp_prli_links WHERE slug='business/denees-kitchen' /* From [thewebsite.com/business/denees-kitchen/] in [/nas/wp/www/cluster-2036/thewebsite/wp-content/plugins/pretty-link/classes/models/PrliLink.php:207] */

Still easy to handle
By , for WP 4.1

Got the non-pro-version. Works fine...

Thank you!

Simiply Best

An Easy and Regularly Updated Tool to create the fancy link.

Product Really Out-of-Date
By , for WP 3.9.2

This classic plugin doesn't get much love or many updates from its developer.

Last update was: Last Updated: 2013-12-9

I'd be happy to give it five stars, if the developer would simple keep the product up-to-date, especially for those of us that have the pro version and would simply NOT want to add plugin after plugin to get the features that this one does half-baked. For instance:

1. Will you add support for the Google+ in the Social Bar? When?

2. Will you add options for Google+, Facebook Badges, like you do for Twitter? When?

3. Will you add support for other kinds of Comments other than Twitter?

Hey, Twitter is Great but man, it isn't the only social media option out there.

I've got other suggestions if the developer would actually take an interest . . .

Jeff
