Convert WordPress's query-based shortlinks to pretty permalinks that are cacheable.
== Description ==
WordPress 3.0 introduced a native shortlinks feature, which builds URLs using query strings. This plugin converts those URLs to ones using pretty permalinks, which makes for a nicer-looking URL and improves shortlinks' ability to be cached.
Posts and pages are supported by default, while filters make it possible to support other post types.
For example, http://example.com/?p=123 becomes http://example.com/p/123/.
== Installation ==
1. Upload the plugin files to the `/wp-content/plugins/eth-simple-shortlinks` directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
1. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' screen in WordPress.
1. Flush your site's rewrite rules by visiting Settings > Permalinks.
== Frequently Asked Questions ==
