Have you ever had to give someone a shortened version of a URL? Maybe you’re a podcaster, and you can’t say “visit mydomain.com/2008/01/03/my-post-with-a-long-url/ for more info.”
Wouldn’t it be useful if you could just say “go to mydomain.com/go/mycoolpost/ ?” Sure, you could use a service like tinyurl.com, but that’s still not too great if you need the URL for a podcast. It’s still awkward to read-out “tinyurl.com/27asr9,” isn’t it? It’s less professional too.
GoCodes let’s you create shortcut URLs to anywhere on the internet, right from your WordPress Admin.
The plugin is also useful for masking affiliate program URLs.

Origin

We are proud that original base of this plugin is a fork of GoCodes by redwall_hp (Not available for download and Supported currently).
We worked on the plugin before before releasing it is “WPNeon GoCodes2”, stripped down some code to make it a simple & lightweight.

Known Issues

WP Super Cache

There seems to be a conflict with the WP Super Cache plugin where a redirect will only work once before the cache is cleared. There are a couple of workarounds:

  1. Add “index.php” on a new line in the “Rejected URLs” field of the WP Super Cache options page. yourdomain.com/ will be cached still, but /index.php won’t.
  2. Frederick of frederickding.com put together another method. Add this line to your .htaccess file above the WP Super Cache line: “RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !.gocode=.” It should look something like this:

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !.gocode=.
RewriteRule ^(.*) /wp-content/cache/supercache/%{HTTP_HOST}/$1/index.html [L]
