Since WordPress 2.6, Link to Post has been one of my single favorite plugins. It provided the ability to easily create links to other posts or pages from within the editor with a very nice, simple interface. It is simply an awesomely simple plugin. However, what’s better than a plugin? Core functionality.
Thanks to the WordPress developers, the features provided by the Link to Post plugin are now built into the core.
If you haven’t played with 3.1 much yet, you may not have noticed the new feature as it’s relatively hidden (or at least not glaringly obvious).
You can either choose from the list of recent posts, or type in the title and the options will be displayed with ajaxed search results:
Simply select the post / page title you want to link to and click “Add Link”.
A beautiful new feature.
