Some handy tools that make using WordPress with the platform a bit nicer

== Description ==

This plugin does a few handy things that make using WordPress as a source for a Microblog on the platform a little nicer.

Currently the plugin will:

*   Set titles to the date and time of the post if the title is empty (it should be if posting from the app)
*   Convert any URL's or email addresses to HTML link tags when saving a post
*   Convert any hashtags into links to a search for that hashtag

Coming soon (maybe):

*   A "Quick post" Dashboard Widget that will allow you to create a Microblog post from the WordPress dashboard

Note: This plugin assumes that running your Microblog is the only thing your WordPress install does. It assumes that posts are used for your microblog posts, and that you don't use any post formats or anything fancy. This plugin may mess up your site if it is set to work differently.

== Installation ==
