Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in /var/www/xxx/wp-content/plugins/wp-lorem-ipsum/lib/class.posts.php on line 37

Could be improve with more options (like h1, h2, h3 or more html elements in the post body) but very usefull anyway!

So here I am setting up a sandbox WP installation for testing plugins that I m writing. This wonderful little plugin just saved me hours of setup, giving me a full set of "real posts" and "real pages" to operate upon. Ten Stars!

The plugin works great to add placeholder posts. Unfortunately, the placeholder text it adds includes "funny" words associated with meat, such as "Tenderloin short ribs cow ground round, drumstick’s kielbasa burgdoggen doner chicken". I personally don't care— but I wanted to show a demo to a client, and can't do it with dummy content like this.

Finally a really useful plugin. You can select number of posts, post type, and other parameters to fill your database during development. Good.
