Another Alchemy United WordPress plugin coming soon

FYI => In order to expedite a couple new ideas/projects, I’ve been digging deeper into WordPress custom post types, as well as WordPress shortcodes. I don’t have an official name for it yet but yesterday I whipped up the shell of a new WordPress plugin.

In short, what I want is a place to store and manage boilerplate type content. For example, I want Killington Year Round (KillingtonYearRound.com) posts to have a byline-esque writer info box at the end of every article. Instead of creating additional SQL tables, I’m going to use a WordPress custom post type to store the byline content and then use a WordPress shortcode to paste it into the article.

I did find a couple similar WordPress plugins but nothing that fit my business needs. So I decided to knock it out myself. Don’t get too excited. It’s not so much I’m a developer per se. I’d like to think of myself more of a big picture strategist who has the chops to execute. Being able to execute allows me to expedite things as necessary.

The basics are working. I’m now in the process of refining the features and functionality. Anyone have any suggestions, requests, etc.? What about suggestions for a name?
