wet_link is largely based on Alex Shiels’ zem_link and can be used as a drop-in replacement for that.


  1. Can you get this updated on the Textpattern Resources site, or would Zem himself have to do that? If you can’t update the TR listing, could you get Zem’s OK to re-submit this as wow_link or some such thing?

  2. zem as the author would have to edit his entry at the Textpattern Resources site. Article permissions are set up that way.
