It’s been a while since I released a new WordPress plugin but I’m happy to say that Wikilinker is now available for download.

Wikilinker provides a simple shortcode that you can wrap around text from a post and it will automatically add a link to an appropriate Wikipedia article – this is very useful when writing articles and you want to explain something.

For example, writing the following sentence…

Chicago was the codename for [wikilink]Windows 95[/wikilink].

Would produce the line…

Chicago was the codename for Windows 95.

There are additional parameters available to easily style the resulting link and even a settings screen with administration so that you can define the default values of these. If you have any issues or ideas, please don’t hesitate to use the support forum on
