Link replacement plugin (6 posts)

    I was wondering if there is a plugin for wordpress that replaces things I type in {} with other things. For example, if I type {my weblog} in I would like WP to automaticly change that to a value from a pre-defined list (e.g. http://cron.quill.statichost.co.uk = {my weblog}) before the post is published. Is this posible? Is there a plugin that does this?

    Thanks in advance,
    Cron

    Like using abbreviations or or such and having them change on posting?

    Although it doesn't do that completely right now Twilight Friend Finder does something similar, and is XFN friendly too :)

    Twilight Friedn Finder is the best solution for WordPress right now. Another non-WP-plugin yet very easy to integrate is phpGiggle, which also allows creating abbreviations, custom-made functions (for searching or quering web services on the keyword, for example Google, Wikipedia, etc.) and it also allows using both a central data file for keywords and adding post-only keywords via HTML tags. I personally root for Twilight's solution as it is much friendlier and I think it has great future - the author is working hard on matching it up to PhpGiggle.

    Thanks for all you help guys. The text replacement plugin is closest to what I am looking for. I will test it out now.
