Shortcode in a Post Worries Me

Works great! Comes with a bookmarklet for your web browser so you can add links to your roundup without being on your site to post them. Very great features.

I can’t say anything bad about this plugin… but, I did not keep it.

The only downfall was the dependence on shortcode. Shortcode can be a great thing when you add it to a page or the sidebar. But, adding shortcode to a post is where I draw the line. Fixing posts when you stop using the plugin, for whatever reason, is a LOT of work versus just removing a sidebar widget or blog page.

If this were added as a feature to WordPress core that would be excellent. This is a really nice way to save links on the fly and add them to posts later, even if they are not roundup posts.
