I have long wanted to put a similar plugin on my website, but I could not find anything normal: (And this plugin works well 🙂 I am more than satisfied 🙂
6. November 2020
I started using it on my site and I am generally satisfied, thank you. The automatic link feature is nice, but if you write the link as text, it will shorten. If it is in the link or shortcode, it does not make any abbreviations. Finally, the target="_blank" and target="_blank" rel="nofollow" attributes should be brought. I'm looking forward to the updates.
