Linking to wikipedia, is there a plugin? (4 posts)

    I did my search and what I found is TicTagTo v.1 that seems to partially work. I'm using WP 2.0.2 and with this plugin when I write a post and link a word to wikipedia (or google or whatever) the first time it worked but if I edit and save again that post the link is gone, looking at the html code I can see that the tag was removed. For few words no big deal but on a daily basis and with 100s of words is a rela pain.

    I think utlimate tag warrior could do the same thing but honestly I can't figure it out.

    If anyone knows a way to link words in a post to wikipedia beside manually insert the link I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Someone did code up a simple plugin a while ago. It has its limitations, namely it's hardcoded to the English edition, but it's a start.

    WP-Wikilinks is another simple plugin, but I'm having trouble installing it. The syntax (Wikipedia:foo or More about Foo) is a bit wordy, too. For people who primarily link to Wikipedia, an option to set it as default would be nice, so you can do foo and be done with it. Lastly, an option to save the created link should be nice for people using the WYSIWYG editor.

    Same. I link to wikipedia all the time-- and different language versions-- I wish there was a functional plugin that would easily and quickly link to wikipedia... would save me tons of time...
