    This great plug-in doesn't work anymore. WordPress 3.3 broke it. Too bad !

    One of my "go-to" plugins, now non-functional under WP 3.3... Dang!

    Any word from the developer?

    No, no word from the developper. I commented on his website too :

    but no response. And I couldn't find an alternative plug-in. For now, I am using the standard "Link" button in WordPress. Thanks to the WordPress developers, one of the features provided by the Link to Post plug-in was recently built into the core. This new "Link" feature is relatively hidden (or at least not very obvious), so see screenshot :

    Unfortunately, you can't link to tags using this built-in feature ; and because it's core, you can't fiddle with the code.

    Thanks, tgeorge. Nice to see that element of Link to Post included in the WP core. However, my most-valued function of Link to Post was generating links via page/post IDs. This allowed the flexibility of being able to change Permalinks without having to worry about pages on the site with links that need to be changed as well.
