Plugin / Acronyms 2

Chris Cox



This WordPress plugin will allow users to maintain a list of acronyms and abbreviations which can be managed in the WordPress Dashbard. These acronyms will be automatically wrapped in the appropriate HTML markup when found in posts, pages and comments.

The plugin will auto-detect whether the currently active theme uses HTML5, and will output the appropriate HTML acronym or abbreviation element, e.g. <acronym title="Hypertext Markup Language">HTML</acronym> (or <abbr title="Hypertext Markup Language">HTML</abbr> for HTML5).

Based on Joel Pan’s excellent Acronyms, which is no longer being actively maintained. The onset of HTML5 and the deprecation of <acronym> in favour of <abbr> led me to fork Joel’s plugin and create Acronyms 2.
