When you create a link in WordPress, it’s hardcoded, meaning that if you ever change the slug from for example,http://example.com/one-awesome-post
you would have to go through each page or post in your site where you have added a link to that post and update it.
Another issue is if you ever change your domain: all your links are broken since WordPress hardcodes them.
With Internalinks, the links are generated dynamically by its ID (optionall by its slug but not by a static URL) meaning that once you add a link with Internalinks in your page, you won’t have to go back and change it if you ever change the post slug or change your domain or even move a site to a subdomain.
From a SEO perspective, internal links and the correct access to them are very important, so Internalinks even helps you keep your links up to date and have a better SEO score.
- Link posts, pages or custom post types in your site dynamically by its ID
- Alternatively, link them by the slug, useful if you’re moving a site online and the IDs may change since the slugs will remain the same
- Add an icon to the link, from Genericon or Font Awesome icons sets
- Position the icon before or after the link
- Specify whether the link will open in a new tab or not
- Set the title attribute and link label
- Create external links and add icons, stylize, set title and set all others options
- Links integrate with your site seamlessly but you can stylize them specifically, using the visual controls in the plugin settings page
- Write custom styling directly in the plugin settings to have your settings always safe during updates.
- Fully translatable
- Good documentation and prompt support
Adding a internalink is easy: you have a new button added to the editor that launches a dialog where you can set the options for the link. To search through thousands of posts, pages or custom post types, just start typing the post title and select it from the autocomplete list that appears.
