    Default Problem With Link Cloaking With And Without Plugins

    Hi guys!

    Can you keep this part private? Thanks! URL= saveyourbreakup.com

    I posted this somewhere else a few minutes ago, but I think it wasn't the right spot, so I'm bringing it here.

    Over the last week or so, I've been trying to sort out a problem with link cloaking with my Socrates site.

    If I activate any WP link cloak plugin, the links redirect to "404 not found".

    I've tried to work around this by disabling the plugins, modifying the .htaccess file and adding some .php scripts, but it's doing the same thing.

    I know very little about coding, so this is really all I feel comfortable dealing with by my self.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Pete

    BTW, Socrates has been great otherwise. I also tried to install Dan's new cloaking plugin but the install failed every time.

    I removed your other post and i'm sorry for your issues with our plugin. I'll look into it.

    I also wasn't able to install the wp links plugin.. kept getting the no valid header error.

    Would really need to look at your install on this.. if your htaccess file is fine, it could be an issue with the plugin.

    I assume if you activate another theme, the problem still occurs so we can rule out anything related to Socrates.

    Hi Dan-

    Thanks for the fast reply.

    I noticed in my htaccess file that it's got some code from Link Cloaker plugin, even though I disabled the plugin. I don't know if that has bearing on this or not.

    here is the complete contents of .htaccess:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    </IfModule>


    # BEGIN WordPress

    # Link Cloaker Plugin BEGIN
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^see/([^/]*)/([0-9]+)/([0-9]+)/?$ http://www.saveyourbreakup.com/wp-content/plugins/link-cloaking-plugin/wplc_redirector.php?post_id=$2&link_num=$3&cloaked _url=$0 [L]
    RewriteRule ^see/([^/]+)[/]?$ http://www.saveyourbreakup.com/wp-content/plugins/link-cloaking-plugin/wplc_redirector.php?name=$1&cloaked_url=$0 [L]
    </IfModule>
    # Link Cloaker Plugin ENDS

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress


    Btw, I never thought to try another theme. I will give that a shot, though.

    And yes, the problem still occurs when I switch themes. I just activated 2 other themes and the redirect was still 404.

    Hope this helps.
