Часто задаваемые вопросы

Can I use the plugin to edit the category permalinks?

This feature is available only in Permalink Manager Pro.

Is it possible to use Permalink Manager on large websites?

When the Permalink Manager was first designed, it was supposed to be used for a typical WordPress website, which usually has less than a few thousand subpages. As a result, all custom permalinks are saved in a single row in the database in order to avoid slowing down the pageload with multiple SQL queries to the database. This is the most effective approach for small and medium-sized websites, without affecting site speed.

While this data structure works for the vast majority of WordPress sites, it may not be optimal if you want to use the plugin to rewrite tens of thousands of permalinks. What works well for a smaller website may not scale well for a megasite. When the number of addresses on your site exceeds tens of thousands, the custom permalinks array may become quite huge, and any operations on it can have an effect on pageload time.

To summarize, the plugin is suitable for small and medium-sized websites. It will not slow down your pageload time or affect its usability in any way. However, if you want to use it on a much bigger website with thousands of permalinks (more than 60.000), please consider excluding content types that do not require customized permalink format in order to lower the custom permalinks array. For further details on the plugin’s performance, please visit this post.

Can I define different permalink formats per each language.

Yes, it is possible if you are using either WPML or Polylang. You can find the full instructions here.

Will the old permalink automatically redirect the new ones?

Yes, Permalink Manager will automatically redirect the native permalinks (used when the plugin is disabled, or before it was activated) to the actual, custom permalinks.

Does this plugin support Buddypress?

Currently, there is no 100% guarantee that Permalink Manager will work correctly with Buddypress.

Can I remove the plugin after the permalinks are updated?

Yes, if you used Permalink Manager only to regenerate the slugs (native post names). Please note that if you use custom permalinks (that differ from the native ones), they will no longer be used after the plugin is disabled.

It is because Permalink Manager overwrites one of the core WordPress functionalities to bypass the rewrite rules («regular expressions» to detect the posts/pages/taxonomies/etc. and another parameters from the URL) by using the array of custom permalinks (you can check them in «Debug» tab) that are used only by the plugin.


For me too, it's a 5-star without the slightest hesitation. The plugin keeps all its promises. I bought the PRO version, and I don't regret it. The support is incredibly efficient, as well as being very kind and extremely responsive! What more could I ask for !
Five stars for this plugin! I stumbled upon this plugin on Twitter and decided to give it a try. This is the only permalink plugin I have found so far that works properly on my multilingual website that has Polylang installed.
A very good plugin that makes your work easier. I recommend reading the articles on the author's website, very helpful. Support, answers questions very quickly. I recommend!

I recently utilized Permalink Manager Lite on my WordPress site and was initially pleased with its performance. The plugin functioned seamlessly, fulfilling its intended purpose without any noticeable issues during its active use. However, I encountered a critical problem upon uninstalling the plugin. The uninstallation process resulted in all URL slugs on my site breaking, leading to widespread 404 errors. This issue has significantly impacted the user experience and the overall functionality of my website. I attempted to resolve the problem by rebuilding the custom permalinks, which is typically a reliable solution for such URL issues in WordPress, but to my disappointment, this approach was unsuccessful. Although the plugin operates effectively while installed, this severe issue on uninstallation is a major concern. I strongly urge the development team to investigate and rectify this flaw. Future users should be aware of this potential risk when considering uninstallation.
