Free version

If you are not sure if the Pro version is what you need, you may get started with the free Lite version of Permalink Manager. This free plugin provides basic features and capabilities, while the more powerful Pro variant includes extra tools to better optimize permalinks.

The main difference between Lite and Pro lies in their ability to edit custom permalinks for categories and custom taxonomies (e.g., product categories). Moreover, the Pro version enables users to utilize custom fields inside the generated custom permalinks as well as create additional redirects that work similarly to aliases leading visitors towards a canonical URL.

Additionally, as a customer with a valid license key for the Pro version, you can request dedicated customer support. By purchasing a license, you are contributing to the maintenance and development of the plugin. Your support helps to cover the costs associated with keeping the plugin up-to-date and improving its features.

Lite vs. Pro

The free version can be downloaded from or installed directly through your WordPress admin dashboard, just like any other free plugin.
Examine the comparison table below to decide if you need the Pro version or if the Free version will suffice for your website.
