Live Links

Live Links is a quick way to share a Local site’s progress as well as gather feedback from a team, or client, without needing to push a site to a remote server.

note

The original version of Live Links was built using Ngrok, which wasn’t optimized for the kinds of traffic that WordPress sites generate.

We’ve re-built Live Links to be able to overcome this sort of limitation as well as include many new features!

The main things that Live Links gives you are:

  • Increased Connection Limit
    • Each Live Link Site Tunnel allows many more connections than previous versions of Live Links. This means that a Local site can be shared with many users as well as across many devices.
  • Persistent URLs
    • These URLs look something like: mysite.localsite.io
    • Each URL is tied to one Local Site. At this time, the URLs can’t be changed, though that is something that is planned and will be available soon! If you do need a different Live Link for a site, export the site and re-import it to claim a new Live Link.
  • Secure Connections
    • Because each Live Link that is enabled is a way for someone to have remote access to your computer, each Local Pro Live Link is a secure connection over HTTPS and has Privacy Mode enabled.

Live Links requires a Local Account in order to work. Get started using this feature by creating a Local Account today!
