Kalin's Easy Edit Links

Description

Adds a customizable box to your edit screens with links and edit buttons for all pages, posts, tags, categories, attachments, links and custom post types for convenient linking.

This plugin contains a self-caching feature so that the HTML code does not need to be recompiled every time the box is displayed, making it surprisingly light-weight.

1.1

*after upgrading to 1.0 on my live site, a PHP error was being thrown due to something wacky in my post content. Maybe I had bad markup or corrupt characters in a post or something. I fixed this by turning off excerpts, so I added a checkbox to select whether or not you want excerpts added as link titles.
