Shortened URLs are more readable and can be used better for advertising purposes.

🌶 Replace Tracking ID for each page or post

Until now, you could only assign the tracking ID globally in the plugin settings or replace it on a shortcode basis. With the latest update, it is now possible for each individual post or page to store its own tracking ID.

Replace Tracking ID for each page or post
You will find an input field for an individual tracking ID in the options menu on every page or post.

The tracking ID stored globally in the settings will then be overwritten with this one. This allows you even more granular tracking!

💫 Shortcode Button for WordPress Classic Editor

We also implemented a button for the classic editor, that allows you to select the shortcodes you want directly from a dropdown.
