Thank you a lot! Have a nice day :)

Hi do you plan on releasing this as a script ?

Hi,

Thank you for your comment!

No, we have no such plans. It is WordPress plugin only.

Thanks!

Hello, Do you plan to add a feature to import links from other plugins, such as Pretty Links ?

Hi,

That’s a great idea, thank you!

We need investigate this.

Thanks!

Hello! The plugin does not work? First he breaks any special character like ?=& which are in almost every affiliate link. He shorten only regular links. secondly it can be used only on the website itself and not outside, like if I want to use it on any social site. You must fix this bugs urgently!

Hi,

We have uploaded update to CodeCanyon and it will be available when it will be checked by moderators.

Thanks!

One problem is resolved the special characters in the links are not broken anymore. BUT… still it have other BUGS which you mast to fix. 1) Links can not be used out of the site. 2) Plugin broke some Themes, 3) Plugin doesn’t work with meny other plugins. I have test it for to long now and find it still one big bug.

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback!

Can you please describe details regarding this issues?

1) You can use plugin links anywhere. E.g. http://affiliatelinkswp.com/go/buy-now/ This is affiliate link from our site that I’ve placed here. It works.

2) Can you please specify which exactly themes and show screenshots or links where it’s broken?

3) Can you specify problems and plugins please?

Thanks again!

Is it possible to cloak links which are generated by other plugins or in shortcodes, widgets?

Hi,

Thank you for your comment.

Please take a look at the screenshot – http://prntscr.com/ch0owt You can’t use in this field shortcode, only URL.

URL may be any.

Thanks!

Hi there, Is your plugin masking links also automatically? (for ex; links coming from a rss feed)

Hello,

Thank you for your comment!

Unfortunately no. Every link should be added manually via admin panel. If you have a lot of links in csv or xml you can try one of free import plugins to insert them to database.

Thanks!

Thanks for your reply. I think it would be a great addition if you could make it automated!

Thanks for your idea! We’ll investigate this possibility.

Hello! After I installed the latest version everything works great for now. But something very important is missing …The possibility to clear all data. This is a must have function, please add it to your next update. Many thanks!

Hi,

Thank you for this idea!

We’ll investigate this and will try to add this function as soon as possible.

Thanks!

Hi Nikita. I already bought 2 of his plugins, and I’m really enjoying it. They work very well and are useful. I would like to know if you are planning to include the Group Links options. And also a link option with iframe bar. Currently I use Pretty Link (https://prettylinkpro.com/) in the Pro version. However, it seems that the developer has abandoned the plugin and only releases security fixes, but the plugin has other compatibility issues.

P.S: If the answer is yes, an option to import the “Pretty Link” (which already has export function included) links would be welcome. I have about 10,000 links.

Hello,

Thank you for using our products! And thank you for your appreciation!

Regarding Affiliate Links, thanks for these ideas. We’ll check this plugin and investigate which of options we are missing. Regarding Group Links, I don’t understand what it is, but I’ll go deeper and investigate this. I think we can add this feature, but after investigation and planning.

Regarding import/export, generally this problem can be solved by such plugins like this https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-all-import/

But yes, we are planning to add ability to import links in future.

Thanks!

Does this plugin support the management of UTM tracking campaigns? If so, how?

Hello,

Thank you for your question.

You can add utm parameters to the target URL here – http://prntscr.com/diuxk7

But for now you can’t add utm to the shorten URL. E.g. you have site.com/go/download/ short URL. If you’ll add parameters, they will be stripped after redirect.

I think we’ll add ability to have some of such parameters passed to the target URL in future releases.

Thanks!

Hi, does this not work with https? I notice the link has http when I publish it.

Hello,

Thank you for your comment!

Yes, our plugin works with https. If your site has https in URL settings – http://prntscr.com/dm9u53

all the links automatically will have https in the url – http://prntscr.com/dm9und

And in the Target URL field you can put any link, with https or http – http://prntscr.com/dm9v1t

Thanks!

Hello, I just purchased your plugin. I wanted to use among with my woozone amazone affilate plugin. But after installing i understand that i should manually ad all links which is impossible for me because i got around 500 products. So do you have a guide that i can manage to use this on my woocommerce store ?Or can you add a function. If you solve this your sales will go 10x up because woozone is one of the most popular addons here and there are many addons similir to it! Thanks.

Hello,

Thank you for this idea! For now we has no such feature, but maybe we will add this in future.

Maybe for current needs you can use any free import/export plugins like this – https://wordpress.org/plugins/supra-csv-parser/ or any other.

Thanks!

Hi, I’m interested in the plugin! I would like to know if it is possible to use these links outside the site and if possible to track them to know the origin of the traffic. For example, if I divulge this link on twitter and people click on the link I will know that the visits are coming from twitter or from any other site whether social or not.

Thank you!

Hello,

Yes, you can use this links outside the site.

Regarding source of traffic, we have referrer field in link statistic, but I think this is not the same thing you need – http://prntscr.com/drzlpg

Twitter and other social networks has several redirects when user clicks the link so the traffic source will be not very clear.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks!

Hello! I want to cleanup the plugins database and cannot find such an option. Thanks.

Hi,

Unfortunately we have no such option for now. But if you delete plugin and install it again, it should remove all the data.

Thanks!

Deleting the plugin??? This is the most irresponsible answer i received ever!!!!! Remove the plugin will delete all affiliate links i created…Try it yourself and you’ll see!

Sorry, looks like I misunderstood you, because you said “cleanup the plugins database”.

Hi, does this plugin support a param? i want to make it like : site.com/?ref=[plugin1_memid]. is it also work on facebook and other social network?

Hi,

Thank you for contacting us!

You can add any URL with any parameters to the target URL here – http://prntscr.com/e53lon

But your final URL will be always like site.com/go/link-slug

You can use this links anywhere, including social networks.

Thanks!

you mean the final URL is the landing URL? seems your URL is the user’s site. does it work on external links too? is there any test site I can try first?

Yes, it’s URL of landing page.

Unfortunately we have no demo site for now.

But you can try our free version of this plugin – https://wordpress.org/plugins/affiliate-links/

Thanks!

Can I remove the Affiliate Link Base word (example: go) and just have domain.com/linkname like pretty link. This will help to forward 404 errors to a new link

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us!

We do not have such option. Affiliate Link Base is required.

Thanks!

Does the plugin allow URL framing? I.e. the URL in the browser stays the same, but loads the destination site.

Hi,

Thank you for your comment.

We have no such ability for now.

Thanks!
