Automatic Links

Installation

  1. Upload the folder automatic-links to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

Reviews

Great plugin until WP4.4

This plugin has been a wonderful timesaver which I’ve used on many sites. However, it hasn’t been updated for six years and seems to have come to its lifetime’s end: in WordPress 4.4, it causes some picture captions to be replaced with code. It would be great if the developer tweaked it!
