I've been using the pro version of this tool for almost a year. It worked the day I installed it and has remained a trusty and reliable plugin. Which is exactly what you want from a tool such as this.
I have two domains. My formal domain and my shorturl domain. The shorturl domain simply forwards to the correct page on the formal domain. I think it is called an alternative base url. Love it.
messed up my website, had to install the complet website again
Update: Another Plugin was the reason for my problems not Pretty Link Lite
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.
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.
This did exactly what I needed it to do. No complaints here. :-)
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] */
Got the non-pro-version. Works fine...
Works a treat, with lots of options to configure the type of redirect (301, cloaked etc)
Very nice and easy to use plugin! using it on all my affiliate projects!
keep it up and free :)
