This plugin works quite well, although it’s unfortunate they didn’t include variable parsing. For those interested in hacking, line 43 can be changed to the following to enable this functionality.

$this->return_data = urlencode($this->EE->TMPL->parse_globals($this->EE->TMPL->tagdata));

works. simple. would be nice if it used EE’s nice url encode too:
  $this->return_data = url_title($this->EE->TMPL->tagdata);

Great little add-on. Solved my problem mostly. Would love support for rawurlencode as well, as i’ll have to hack it up just a bit.

This simple plugin does exactly what it says it does. This plugin would get five stars out of me if it could handle the {site_url} tag.
