[resolved] List Category ID is where? (4 posts)

    This relates to WP Version 3.

    I'm attempting to create two lists for a sidebar, each list would be selected by a link category.

    The codex suggest I can do this by using

    wp list bookmarks

    with a link category argument

    category
    (string) Comma separated list of numeric Category IDs to be displayed. If none is specified, all Categories with bookmarks are shown. Defaults to (all Categories).

    However, when I look at the table of Link Categories I don't see any ID.

    How does this work, or where is there a reference that explains how to build the code snippet to accomplish a list based on list categories.

    Thanks.

    Go to Admin->Links->Link Categories and hover the mouse over a link name. The ID will be shown at the bottom in the browser status bar as 'cat_ID=44', for example.
