WordPress MyLinks - The link directory with automatical thumbnail generation

Displays blogroll links on a Page or Post. Insert `[mylinks]` to a Page or Post and it will display all your blogroll links there- with live snapshots

Displays blogroll links on a Page or Post. Insert [mylinks] to a Page or Post and it will display all your blogroll links there- with live snapshots of every page. Very nice too look!

Only 1-2 Minutes and the thumbnails snapshots are generated. This takes some time, because the server has to deliver many thumbnails at one time. Once cached (1-2minutes), the thumbnails will appear.

TODO:

  1. [new 14.01.2009] Sorting of the links
  2. [new 02.09.2009] Select template with shortcut [mylinks=Category,templatename]

INSTALLATION:

  1. Upload the mylinks plugin directory, along with its contents, to your worpress plugins directory: /wp-content/plugins/.
  2. Activate the plugin and follow the instructions in the description.
  3. Example: Use [mylinks] in your page or post to display all your links
  4. Example: Use [mylinks=categoryname] to display just the links of the category categoryname in your page or post
  5. Example: Use [thumb]http://www.your-homepage.com[/thumb] to display a thumbnail of the website http://www.your-homepage.com in your page or post
  6. Thats it :) You just have to update your wordpress links.

CHANGE LAYOUT:

Just change the templates in the templates subdirectory of the mylinks-plugin: all_links.html is the template for displaying all links and one_category.html is the template for displaying just one category. I think its easy to understand how it works :)

DONE:

  1. 27.01.2009: New software for generating snapshots
  2. 27.01.2009: Now also thumbnails of websites with flash elements supported (there were some problems before)
  3. 27.01.2009: Better thumbnail quality
  4. 09.02.2009: Display links only from special category
  5. 09.02.2009: Display only one thumbnail/website
  6. 09.02.2009: Use templates, so everbody can easily change the html code (valid html, xhtml...) (2.0)
  7. 05.03.2008: Fixed type=text/javascript in thumbnail (2.1)
  8. 06.03.2008: Fixed type=text/javascript in category overview (2.2)
