Hello, all! Sorry for what will be a burst of plugin announcements for me, but I haven't been able to make available the plugins I've developed over the last couple of weeks until now.
Plugin: Text Replace
Description: Replace text with other text in posts, etc. Very handy to create shortcuts to commonly-typed and/or lengthy text/HTML.
Details can be found at
All of my plugins can be found at http://www.coffee2code.com/wp-plugins/
You have to edit the plugin file to add additional shortcuts and their replacement text. The plugin is primed with one shortcut:
":wp:" => "WordPress",
This plugin could also be used to do smilies:
"8)" => "<img alt='cool' src='http://mysite.org/wp-images/cool.gif' />",
For former Movable Type users, this should be able to replicate the functionality of <MTMacroDefine> under MT (or at least my usage of it).
