The best Link Management
By , for WP 4.6

I am a pro user. A must have tool with every WordPress website

This is the best one
By , for WP 4.5.3

I tried all the leading free affiliate link cloaking plugins and this is the best one by far! In addition, the author's response time and willing to help in the plugin's support forum is outstanding -- even with the free version. :-)

Works fine!
By , for WP 4.5.1

I've been using it for a few months now and I've had no problems whatsoever.

Only a few suggestions though. It doesn't allow creation of a link that's not in the proper format. That's absolutely great, but I'd like to have the ability to shrink Magnet URIs.

Thanks for the work :)

Great branding tool that I use all the time!

I've been a Pretty Link Lite user for years, and never had a problem until today. I found a year-old WordPress forum post sharing the same problem and contacted the developers of Pretty Link Lite. Within 30 minutes, Paul had resolved the issue for me, and all was right again with my world... (If only all of my problems were this easily handled!)

Great tool, awesome support. What's not to like?

Nothing better than changing your links
By , for WP 4.4.2

If you are advertising or doing affiliate marketing, You must need pretty link to hide your real links and change them into yours to give natural feel to your users. I just love it.

Warning redirect without your permission!
By , for WP 4.4.2

If you use the free version and a user click on your pretty affiliate Link and do nothing on the salespage, like scrolling etc. it will directly redirect to the memberpress salespage at https://www.memberpress.com/ without your permission!

Try your own link to test it!

If the user come to a salespage and a video appears and he will see it, the redirect comes in and steel your customer. This is a very bad way to work with trust of customers. For me, this people behind pretty link has died.
I delete this plugin instantly and use safe redirect manager for the same things. I'm happy to see this before i have buy the pro version! Never Ever!

Works and Recommended

I love this. I know some people are unhappy because there is a paid version. Well the free version works and I love it. Keep up the good programming.

What an "ugly" plugin!
By , for WP 4.4.1

This author removed some most basic functions to force you to upgrade to "pro" version.

You can't see a list of "pretty links" you created, in their place, is a big fat ugly YouTube video embed to "help you get started". Problem is, the video is at least a few years old, and the interface featured in the video does NOT look like what you see today any more - especially after they removed the most important screen that you rely on to keep track of things.

See it for yourself here: http://www.screencast.com/t/O3GQ6sbCFz

One more thing, this plugin caused frequent "connection lost..." problem while composing posts and pages. The problem went away as soon as I disabled it.

Needless to say, this piece of ugly plugin will be uninstalled from my site asap!

Beautiful Looking Links
By , for WP 4.4.1

I begin use it for redirects, is very easy to install and to use.
I think that I'll try also the pro version.

Nice plugin
By , for WP 4.4

I am using the free version on several sites. Actually, I don't use it much, mostly just for a handful of affiliate links that I want to mask/track and for that this plugin works perfectly. I can't speak to anything about the pro version or redirects (I use the Redirection plugin for those) but for my needs this is a great plugin.
