Blogroll page (12 posts)

    I'm wondering if there is a plugin that allows you to post a blogroll on a separate page? For example, if I belong to Alberta Blogs (www.albertablogs.com) and want to display that on a page other than the first, do I have any options? Thanks.

    You do indeed have an option.
    Grab this:
    http://dev.wp-plugins.org/wiki/RunPHP
    Install / activate.

    Now on any page you can use WP commands too.
    So if you wanted your whole links list:

    <h2>My links</h2>
    <?php get_links_list(); ?>

    That help?

    from your description of runPHP, i grabbed it, hoping to fix my own separate problem. It does not appear to allow you to use wp functions on other pages, though. it just allows you to put PHP script in wp posts.

    I'm using it on a WordPress page to make lists like the above.

    If you mean a page NOT made by WP then you need to include wp-blog-header.php at the top to make anything work.

    Well, it didn't work. I'm not looking to link to my own blogroll, but rather one generated and updated by a site. Whenever I attempt this, it does something really strange to that page. It actually inserts part of the dashboard images into the post! I'm not sure if anyone has any suggestions on how to get around this. So, to be perfectly clear, I'm looking to add a blogroll (albertablogs.com) to a separate page of the K2 theme. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Does the theme you're using have a links page? If it does, it should be real easy to set one up.

    No, no links page. I want my normal links on the front page, but the blogroll (actually several) on different pages.

    I see.

    Try this: Go to Admin and click on "Write". When that page loads click on "Write Page".

    When you're at the "Write Page" page you'll find a column of buttons on the right. One of these will say, "Page Template", which should have a minus sign to the right. If you see a plus sign just click on the button and you'll get the minus sign and the drop-down menu

    Click on the drop-down menue and then select the "Links Page" option. When you click on the "Create New Page" button below the text entry box you will have a links page. Some themes have an option for a two column links page if you prefer.

    It's been a fortnight since I did this, and my memory stinks on toast, so what happens next is a mystery to me. But I think you'll get a "links" link on your site in the sidebar just above the links displayed on said sidebar.

    Hope this helps.

    But I have no "links page". I only have a default, a default with comments, and an archives page. Can I create a new page template?

    Did you check out the "Write Page" page?

    In K2 there's no Links page template!

    Maryndor, that shouldn't stop you to take a step ahead :)
    In WP you can create as many Page templates as you wish > http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Page_Templates
    links.php is a Page that WP recognizes as a special template file, but you can create a template and call it whatever you want. Also, you can put in the template all the code you need from that AB blogroll and in this case just create a new Page using the new template. If the code is in, you don't even have to type anything in the "content" area, just Create new Page > Select the template and you are done.
