It does what’s supposed to do, and do it fine. No issues.

This broke my website on WP 6.1, too many redirects error, publisher expects users to be programmers and debug it themselves. Too bad since it would be really nice to have this feature.

Worked out of the box. Resolved an issue where the additional parameters that Facebook adds to your shared URL would redirect our articles to the homepage. Big Thanks!
