Simple Attribution

Description

Simple Attribution is just that… simple! It adds a meta box on post pages which allows bloggers to specify the name and URL of the site a sourced article originated from. Assuming both these fields are filled out, it appends the attribution link to the bottom of the post.

Simple Attribution allows links to be generated in both text and image form, allowing you to customize it to the feel of your website. Natively, it includes 5 icons which can be used to identify the attribution link instead of the standard caption (which is editable through the options panel), and custom icons can be used as well.

Don’t like where we put the link? You have the option to disable auto-attribution and put the link wherever you want it to display simply by adding <?php echo display_attribution(); ?> to your template!

Reviews

Simple, Clean, Easy to Customise

Great little plugin. Can make it look however you want. Easy to fit in with theme. Would love to see the addition of rel=”nofollow” option. I have added this via the simple_attribution_attribution filter, but for non coders this would be great addition.

Works beautifully

Works great for a quick and easy way to add attribution into posts without having to hand-edit and hand-place everything. Easily stylable too.
