oEmbed Photolinkor 0.1

oEmbed in WordPress is pretty great – it makes embedding things in posts a lot easier. The way it handles Flickr photos annoys me though – shouldn’t they be linked back to the Flickr photo page as Flickr asks in their community guidelines? This really simple plugin just links to oEmbedded photos using the provided URL.

This plugin only seems useful if you embed Flickr photos. For Photobucket photos it doesn’t do anything special because Photobucket oEmbeds aren’t handled properly in the first place – oEmbed only handles direct links to Photobucket photos, not links to photo pages. So you’ll just get a link to the image you already embedded. I have no idea why they’re wasting the opportunity to get links back to their site…and all those ads.
