ETH Simple Shortlinks

Convert WordPress's query-based shortlinks to pretty permalinks that are cacheable. http://example.com/?p=123 becomes http://example.com/p/123/.

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/.

No, shortlinks use the posts' IDs, so aren't available for modification.
