There is no hint, that it's only a LITE plugin with VERY LIMITED functionality. The screenshots show much more than the user get with the free version. In free version you see only last 7 days in the statistics (what makes this plugin useless in my case).
I needed this plugin to create short links for a custom post type. The programmers were so friendly and added the post type. Thanks for that! Didn't find any other plugin that fulfills my needs so idealy. Great work!
Easy to set up and start using. It worked smoothly and I created a few links. A few days later I discover that my site was broken and the fatal error was from this plugin. I had to deactivate it to get my site working again. It's a shame as I had really liked it.
I was using Bitly to shorten the links. As a WordPress user, I was looking for something similar in WordPress and I came across this plugin. I must say that though this plugin doesn't have many downloads (might have recently launched), it has a nice interface and also integrates well with WooCommerce, Events Manager, Betterdocs, etc.. what all I wanted. It's a perfect fit for my need!
