[resolved] blogroll-update plugin (7 posts)

    Hi. I'm using the blogroll-update plugin to show when my links have been updated.

    I got it to work--it italicizes recently updated links. However, I would like to put an asterisk before the link name rather than have it italicize. Is this possible? If so, any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hilary

    That code does not seem to be in the plugin - have you checked any options screens in WP for latest updated, esp the Links screen ?

    To get this, you'll have to fire up phpMyAdmin and go into your database. You'll need to edit the table "wp_options". In this table, you'll need to find two fields: "links_recently_updated_prepend" and "links_recently_updated_append". As the names of the fields suggest, the first one is what is added before a link and the second is what is added after the link. In my table, I have the following in "..prepend":
    <span class="recent">&raquo;</span>&nbsp;<em>
    and I have the following in "..append":
    </em>
    This combination adds a right angle quote with CSS defined "recent" attributes, then italicizes; then at the end of the line it turns off the italics.

    This may be a simple question, but how exactly do I get to phpMyAdmin?

    Also, the text following "..append" didn't show up above.

    Thanks!

    I don't seem to have those fields. These are what I have in wp_options.

    option_id
    blog_id
    option_name
    option_can_override
    option_type
    option_value
    option_width
    option_height
    option_description
    option_admin_level
    autoload

    Any ideas?
