About a year ago, I had need to create a glossary of terms category in WordPress and had to create a navigation system that allowed terms to be displayed based on their first letter. At the time I was pretty new to PHP (heck, I still am!), so I was lucky to find a thread on here (this one: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/12379 ) that gave me the code I needed to build the system.
Last weekend, I got an email from someone asking how I got the code to work and I went back to the support thread and discovered that several others had also asked the same question. Rather than take 5 minutes to post some follow-up helpful hints, I spent the last 3 days writing my first WordPress Plugin. :)
If anyone would like to test this plugin for me, or just glance over the code and critique my style, I would be most appreciative.
