What does this plugin do?
The internal link plugin allows blog owners to easily link to posts and pages within their wordpress blog without having to enter the full URL. Use wiki style tags to define a link when writing a post the sites permalink structure is maintained. The wiki code can be inserted manually or by using the wysiwyg plugin.
