Append Link on Copy

Description

With this Plugin you can automatically add text or html to content that is copied from your page.

If a visitor copies any kind of text from the website, a link to the page is appended, so if it is pasted elsewhere, a link to the page is maintained.

right now you can:

  • specify the Read more link text, default: Read more at:
  • how many
    tags should be inserted below the copied text and the link or copyright notice
  • specify if you want the current page title included
  • make every copy link to the main page
  • decide if you want the site title to be appended
  • see previews of HTML and text versions of the copied text and link

I plan to increase the functionality with:

  • some internationalisation
  • if somebody wants to contribute legacy IE support I’ll include that

Suggestions welcome

FAQ

Will this work perfectly in all browsers?

Yes. Internet Explorer is not a browser.

Reviews

Much better and lower overhead compared to another similar plugin

Doesn’t currently work if pasting from IE or Opera, but this is probably not too important:
Most intelligent blog owners will not be using IE anyway, and most have not yet realized how good Opera is.

I don’t currently use pagination, so cannot say if this plugin messes with that or not.

Great job

I am having no problems on using this. I heard about this plugin over on the WordPress Plugins A to Z podcast and was something i was looking for. A little surprised of the rating but with only three that is kind of understandable. but no problems works great in Chrome and Firefox
