    Hi all,

    Sorry if this just another newbie question. I am creating a blog to talk about my travels and I wanted to use the WordPress' Link Manager has a "Resources" list.
    The thing is that I also want each post to be able to link to some specific resource. Is there a way (a tag ? a plugin ?) that allow me to embed a link already stored in the link manager inside a post giving it's id for example ?

    Thanks for your help

    Alright then, I am gonna try making a plug-in for this functionality myself. If anybody ends up here looking for the same functionality and I still haven't uploaded any results don't hold your breath it will be my first wp plug-in attempt ever, so I'm very likely to end up giving up ...

    Thanks for your quick answer moshu.

    Okay, the good news is I've coded something that does what I want. The bad news is, I'm not sure it can be called a plug-in since I'm such a crappy coder ...

    here's the link to my source: http://open.leozonline.org/2006/10/02/post-a-link-wordpress-plug-in/

    if anybody is interested in such a functionality and feels like he is a better coder than I am, feel free to download and start building a clean plug-in from my dirty code.
