Installation is a snap (as you’d expect from any WordPress plugin) but usage is a little clunky, compared to normal links (simply click on the Link quicktag in the Write Post page and enter the uri) whereas in the Linknotes plugin you have to format your text appropriately. Someone left a comment on Jeremy’s site to say he had made a Quicktag for the plugin – if I can find out how he did, I’ll post that here as well.
To see how this works – I have rewritten my first paragraph above using the plugin:
Through Craig’s site :”Craig’s site”:http://nuclearmoose.com/archives/2005/08/07/wp-linknotes-this-is-freakin-fantastic/ I came across a plugin which allows you to make links in your blog posts appear like footnotes – the plugin is called Linknotes :”Linknotes”:http://jeremycurry.com/archives/2005/08/07/linknotes/ and was coded by Jeremy Curry.
I found Podz tutorial on how to make Quicktags here :”here”:http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/quicktags/ and made my own Quicktag for this plugin – now it works really well!
What do people prefer – links within the text or Linknote links?
I just got an email from Jeremy, the developer of Linknotes:
I just added quicktags to the plugin, and it doesn’t require you to replace, or edit any files. Just download v0.3. Thanks for comments, and I hope you like the plugin!
Good job Jeremy, thanks for responding so quickly. I downloaded v0.3 as advised and while the buttons appear, they don’t appear to function for me 🙁
