I couldn’t find a simple way to just add links with a short description to my blog without
jumping through a lot of hoops. So I made this simple plugin that makes adding posts to your
to site as a link blog post with just a few steps. That way you could have posts that like
the popular site Daring Fireball
There’s a simple wizard style interface that walks you through the process.
Any image that is used from the source link will be added to the post and set as the thumbnail.
The image isn’t added inline to the post because I want you to have more control of how it
was displayed. However the image will be imported in to the Media gallery for you to insert.
Something should maybe go here?
- Upload the
link-grab-o-maticfolder to the
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Click the new ‘Link Grab-o-Matic’ option under the Posts menu from your admin screen
- Rock on!
You haven’t asked any yet, but when you do and they become frequent, I’ll put them here.
