I just came across a plugin that lets you easily add "snippets" of code or text into a blog post, thus saving you from having to re-type something that you frequently insert into your posts.
For example, when I do my "Travel Photo Thursday" posts I always add this to the end of my post so my readers are taken to the Budget Travelers Sandbox blog where they'll find links to the blogs of other writers who participate in the TPT project:
"Visit Budget Travelers Sandbox for more of this week’s Travel Photo Thursday shots.)"
I wanted to encourage readers to look at more than just the "featured" post at the top of the content section of my blog. So I used the "Easy Shortcode Buttons" plugin to create two big red clickable buttons at the end of each post. One button takes the reader back to my "front page" which lists "teasers" in a two-column format under the featured post of the day. The other button invites the reader to explore my blog; clicking on that button takes the reader to the "What's On This Blog" page that lists the major categories of posts, and also includes links that will allow them to purchase products and services from my affiliate programs.
Rather than opening up a blog post that has these two sets of text/code and then copying and pasting into new post, I use the "Post Snippets" plugin to store the text/code which I can quickly access and insert into a post by clicking on a button in the WordPress editor. The plugin is simple to install and very easy to use.
I recommend the SEO Ultimate plugin for snippets. It also handles your SEO needs and has nice monitoring features. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/seo-ultimate/
I get the star rating nicely displayed in Google search results for this place in the Swiss alps http://travelmemo.com/europe/switzerland/giardino-mountain-design-h...
Thanks for this info.
The "Post Snippets" plugin works fine, but I'll check the one you've suggested to see if it a better choice.
