Changing how updated links display? (6 posts)

    I'm not sure how to phrase this, but here goes:
    I've got my links showing when a site has been update (at least I think that's what it's doing.) For example, today my link to zeldman looks like this:
    >> zeldman <<
    How can I change how an updated link looks? I don't particularly like the >> << that's wrapping around the link.
    Thanks,
    Tony

    I jsut did this on my site....
    from the admin screen click, Options, the Link Manager Settings.....
    Scroll down... towards teh bottom are the options for links_recently_updated_prepend and links_recently_updated_append... jsut change them to what ever you want.

    What do I have to "switch on" to get the link update formatting to work? Even though I have the prepend/append stuff set, and a time setting as well, my links never show that they have been updated.

    From the admin, click Manage Links, then Manage Link Categories.....
    Make sure all categories have "Updated" turned on.
    Then in the index.php..... add
    require_once($abspath.'wp-links/links.weblogs.com.php');
    right after the include for links.php.... in the index.php that comes w/ WP it is already there, just commented out.

    TG,
    Thanks...I was looking in the wrong place. For some reason I looked first in the "Manage Links" section, and when it wasn't there, I went digging through various php files. Once again I've managed to outsmart myself to no avail...
    Note to self: always look in "Options" when looking for an option.

    @Chris,
    Many thanks, mi amigo. I only needed to uncomment the PHP line in index.php. I looove simple fixes! :)
