Link Cloaking Plugin 1.8

Author: Janis Elsts
What Is “Cloaking”
This plugin will “cloak” external links so they look like they’re pointing to your own domain, e.g. “http://yourdomain.com/blog/more/Link_Text_Here/12/34”. You can set your own prefix instead of “more”. The links are only rewritten when being displayed to a visitor – the plugin will not modify the actual text of your posts as saved in WordPress database. The cloaked links will redirect seamlessly to the original URL and will work in all browsers (they don’t rely on JavaScript)
To do a new installation of the plugin, please follow these steps

Download the link-cloaking-plugin.zip file to your local machine.
Unzip the file
Upload link-cloaking-plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
(Optional) Go to Options -> Link Cloaking and modify the default settings to your liking.
Go to Options -> Permalinks and click Update Permalinks. This ensures the plugin’s link redirection code is added to WordPress .htaccess file. Important: The code has to be at the top of .htaccess. Usually this should be automatic. If not, you will need to move it there, or the cloaked links won’t work.

To upgrade your installation

De-activate the plugin
Get and upload the new files (do steps 1. – 3. from “new installation” instructions)
Reactivate the plugin. Your settings should have been retained from the previous version.
It is recommended to update permalinks again (see Step 6. above).
