WordPress plugin

My wordpress coordinates plugin is doing mostly what I want it to now. If you put coordinates in a post that are in the correct format (xxdxx.xxx,-yydyy.yyy) it will convert them into a link to three things – a MapQuest map, and links to my CGI program for producing GPX and LOC files of the coordinates.

Example: 37d59.786,-84d32.252

Install by dropping the file into your wp-content/plugins directory and then enabling it in the “Plugins” menu.

The obvious shortcoming of this plugin is that it links to my copy of this cgi program. While I certainly don’t mind you using it, it is running on my machine at home, over my DSL line, and may be just a tiny bit slow. I will be interested, however, to see who, if anyone, starts using it.

Share and enjoy.
