    I’ve downloaded, installed, and activated the WordPress Linke plugin. However, I can’t find an “In” button in my post editor. Also, when I use the code “[In wikipedia]text[/In]” nothing happens, whether I use this code in the visual editor or the html editor. Can you help me out?

    Hey no problem. For the tag it should be “ln” with a lower case “L” and not “In” with an upper case “i”. In the editor you should see this:
    linkle location

    Where the ln button is circled in red.

    In WP 2.6.1 the button doesn’t get integrated in the editor but the link code can be inserted in html mode.

    Thanks. I know there are problems under 2.6.1 it’s just been a question of having time to look into it since my website setup doesn’t support 2.6.1 yet. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to setup a test configuration at home and fix the problem.
