The Permalinker

I found a nice WordPress plugin today that takes some of the headaches out of placing page links inside of WordPress pages and posts. It can be a real pain to include links in the body of a page during testing/development, and then to change them all on launch, and then to change them all again if you ever need to move the site to a different domain.

The Permalinker lets you use WP shortcodes in your page/post content that automatically update your links if you ever need to change the base URL for a site. There’s also a handy shortcode for the current template directory, making it very easy to link to or display images included in a theme rather than in the “standard” uploads directory.

This seems to be much easier than using a plugin to allow PHP execution from within pages and posts, and then using the native PHP permalink functions in WordPress. We’ll see how it goes…

Testimonial:

I’m proud of our website, and I know it could never have been created or maintained without Wittmania's expertise.

Mike made each component of the site easy for me to update with fresh pictures and text, even embedded videos.
