    Small warning for Random Top Ads: it places a backlink to the plugin page by default. Justified or not, it might catch a few people off guard.

    Thanks for covering my plugin.

    Photo Dropper is nice, I’m using it on my website now.

    Two issues though:

    1) It adds target=”_blank” to all links which isn’t XHTML valid, and it adds ‘<br/>’ instead of new lines.

    2) It adds one link to the image, a link to the image author, and it also adds two separate links back to the plugin website on every post. (One on the Creative Commons logo and one on the word Photo.) While a link is acceptable, it seems like keyword spamming to me.

    If you want to change the html it adds for the images, it can be done in the flicker-js.php file. I’ve edited mine to automatically add style=”float:left; padding: 5px 10px 0 10px;” to all my images, use new lines, fix the HTML code, and remove some of the superfluous links.

    CodeShield — This is exactly what I’ve been looking for, for a long time. Thank you, Scott, for making a very simple code-tag plug-in!

    thanks for the update keith.
    This is a good aspiring plugins lists. GoCodes is a must have for ‘nofollow/referral’ linking.

    notes on Codeshield i thought its better if the plugins convert the special character from ‘Entity Name’ to ‘Entity Number’ instead, its RSS valid.

    there is build in core function inside formatting.php → ‘ent2ncr()’.

    CodeShield is going to be useful for me as a coder who may release code samples in blogs. And Photo Dropper is really nice to have to add some non-text content to beautify the posts.
