    The WP125 plugin was a surprise. I created a script that managed 125 ads for my clients sites and my own. It works pretty much like this plugin. But mine have an interactive drag and drop admin interface. I was considering turning it into a plugin because it’s hacked into my WP links manager page. I might still do it. Nice list overall
