Brakes Yoast Sitemap with 404s
By , for WP 4.4.2

Amazon has been installing this on its cloud sites by default. It will break your Yoast SEO plugin sitemaps though. If you are getting 404's on your page and post sitemaps and have this plugin try deactivating it.

Doesn´t work on WP4.1
By , for WP 4.1

On WordPress v4.1 plugin doesn´t work as expected.
Most of internal urls remains untouched (absolute), few of external urls (eg.: pointing to external libraries, like jquery etc.) are shortened - converted to relatives :(

Tested on freshly installed 4.1

Does not work well
By , for WP 3.9.1

Most leaves absolute urls including the photographs that are in the same url.

It "fixes" ALL URLs, so it break external ones
By ,

The plugin is supposed to make local URLs relative, but by mistake it also makes external URLs relative, thus it breaks the website.

This is how it doesn't work:

http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js becomes /ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js, which is basically http://yourwebsite.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js

This plugin also broke our site
By , for WP 3.4.2

Great concept, but not there yet. This completely hosed our site. It caused the Avada template and Revolution jquery sliders to become utterly unusable in the admin - so apparently it's stepping on urls it shouldn't

This plugin broke my site.
By , for WP 3.5.1

I updated this plugin and it broke all the AJAX and JS elements on my site.

Maybe there is a way to recover/fix this issue but I am very wary to use it again due to this issue.

As of right now my site is totally broken.
