Hello,

As you know I have gt-nextgen latest and was wondering do I leave the code intact if I was updating to shortlinks or do I have to remove the nextgen code?

I think I know the answer but rather get conformation to be sure of what im doing exactly.

Personally, it would be better to go back and remove what you have and then re-incorporate the new code. If it were me, I would take the reverse of the instructions from GTNG and then re-apply ShortLinks.

The taps are almost identical and if you get any search engines experiencing 404 errors, you can add a rewrite rule or two to either just give the 301 redirect or better, rewrite the link to what the new one is in combination with the 301.

... just remember to double check you undid the changes made to the database if you chose that option when you originally installed GT NextGen or it will bite you later on.

Thanks "G"! I keep forgetting about the "Menu Tweak"... Since I never used it because I had already created my own GTB hack (since I hate core table augmentation), I did not think to mention it.
