Change the default WordPress shortlink structure dynamically just like you can change your permalinks.

== Description ==

This plugin will add new settings to your Settings -> Permalinks screen for you to
specify your blog's shortlink structure. By default WordPress shortlinks look like
``. Using this plugin you can specify every other structure
you like, e.g. [](

Specifying new shortlink structures will never break WordPress' default. Also when
changing the shortlink strucutre again afterwards old structures won't break until you
explicitly remove them.

Take a look at the [screenshots](

== Installation ==

1. Visit your WordPress Administration interface and go to Plugins -> Add New
2. Search for "*Custom Shortlink Structure*", and click "*Install Now*" below the plugin's name
3. When the installation finished, click "*Activate Plugin*"

Now visit Settings -> Permalinks and specify your own shortlink structure. Changes here won't
break WordPress default `?p=%post_id%` structure.

== Changelog ==

= 1.0: 2013-04-23 =
* Release

== Upgrade Notice ==

== Screenshots ==

1. Post edit screen: Get Shortlink
2. Settings -> Permalinks

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= When visiting a shortlink defined using the plugin I just get redirected to home? =
Some other plugins might interfere with redirections. Using WordPress SEO's *Redirect ugly URL's to clean permalinks* setting for example will break this plugin.

= I specified a custom shortlink structure but get a "Not Found" error on load =
The plugin only works when pretty permalinks are enabled. Under Settings -> Permalinks
specify a permalink structure other then default.
