    I spent mucho time searching, and found little. Of course, now I search, and find something. Thanks. For anyone who stumbles on this little back and forth, this is what I originally posted:
    <snipped>Hi. I have far too many external links for the main page of my site to elegantly represent them all, even with them broken into link categories.
    Can someone direct me to some WP-powered sites that have managed to produce a separate "links page"?
    Thanks,</snipped>

    I knew you would find something before I got back, now close out this thread with a link to what you found so others searching can find it, too. ;-)

    Good idea. Here's a "link page" thread I found helpful.

    Looks like you got this figured out already but just in case; here's how I did this for my portal page.
    I copied my index.php to portal.php, gutted the Loop out of it and then set it up to use get_linksbyname to add the links into the page from my WordPress database and sort the links out by specific categories.

    Thanks for the info. I've been fiddling with get_linksbyname and get_links. Can I ask how you got it to break the links down by category? I'm getting mine all in one list.
    Thanks.

    I should have clarified it more when I made that thread-
    <?php include('wp-includes/header.php') ?>
    <div id="links">

      <?php get_links_list(); ?>
    </div>
    <?php include('wp-includes/footer.php') ?>

    I was looking to do this in WP 1.5. If anyone else is curious, see: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/32956
