    I was wondering if there was a plugin for wordpress for link redirection. What I mean by this is that the mouseover of a link that I provide in my article will show mydomain.com/8109u01 which will redirect it to a website that is associated with that number. I will be using this for affiliate websites in which I don't want the consumer to see that I'm redirecting them via a referral link. Are there such plugins which are easy to manage in wordpress?

    Does wordpress have a clean url plugin where you can specify and mask the url?

    Why? I'm not fooling them. I will simply be reviewing a product and supply a link to the affiliates website. How is this illegal?

    As LOLZILLA said, that's bad, very bad practice. I wouldn't recommend that as a solution to ANYONE.

    Thanks, I don't understand how I went wrong here. I posted a question, you come here and spam the thread and don't give any solutions..

    All I was looking for was either a redirect php script or a plugin for wordpress...

    google shorturl. All you have to do is upload the plugin, activate it, copy and paste a line of code into your htaccess and you're done. It works quite well. I think thats kind of what you're looking for

    Thank you very much, the only thing I could find otherwise was jump.php but didn't like that I'd have to update the links manually without the wordpress interface.
