Часто задаваемые вопросы

Can I change the Link structure other than /go/ ?

  • Sure. Just use with linker_prefix_slug filter.


  • Requires PHP 7.0 for list management functionality.

What is the plugin license?

  • This plugin is released under a GPL license.


Does not show anything on the front end. With such plug-ins it is always great to have a sample or a screenshot; e.g. are there widgets, etc.?
