    This is my first wordpress hack, so be gentle. :)
    wp-recent-links is a hack (soon a plugin?) for adding a links blog to your WordPress-powered site, similar to kottke.org's remaindered links. Compared to WordPress' included links manager, this plugin allows you to have a separate archives page for your links blog, including monthly archives.
    You can see it in action on my site, it is labeled "Recent Links" on my sidebar, with its own archive page.

    Wonderful hack! I actually had the exact same thing planned out, but since you already did it with all the features I wanted, THANKS! :D
    You even remembered to include a customizable limit for the sidebar, which is just what I wanted.

    Where can I find info on the plug-in stuff? It sounds really interesting and important. :)

    Thanks guys.
    I'm just as confused right now on the new plugin architecture. I just downloaded the current nightly (2004-03-26) and its already there (the plugin stuff), I will study it later. :)

    Nice hack, Markku! (I just used it to replace my ad-hoc hack on 0.72 that did roughly the same thing.) Do you have a bookmarklet to make it even easier to add recent links?

    Will try to make a bookmarklet. :) I didn't try to create one because I don't use bookmarklets that much. I think that would be fairly simple, it should be included when I update the hack soon.

    Hmm, I'll look into it. Haven't encountered that before. Were you able to post links earlier before this error happened? I'm not quite sure what could be the problem. Try re-uploading the file recent-links.php, maybe it was corrupted.

    Does somebody have a copy of the zip file I can use? I have tried all day and yet not been able to access markku's website.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi..
    Should be great to make a mod of this hack to allow to get Favorites from StumbleUpon RSS Feed.
    What you think?

    Still wanting to use this. Markku, have you had any luck figuring out what was causing that strange fault?

    Kate, I sent you an email regarding the problem. It didn't work?

    I haven't had a chance to try it yet, Markku. I'll give it a shot in a few.

    wp-recent-links--1.11 just made it out the door.
    Reformatted docs and some code cleanup, particularly relevant to Kate's problem.
    Again, thanks everyone.

    I just changed to using this: http://wordpress.org/support/3/4801 instead of the link manager (which is too bad, as an archives page would've been nice). Do you think there's a chance you might create a hybrid between the two so that we can get comments on links? (My most requested feature of WordPress, unfortunately also the one feature which seems to be adamantly _non_-implemented :(

    the archives page when using the above method would be your category archive. example:
    http://charles.gagalac.us/links/
    it was made using a mod_rewrite rule that points to a separate template but references the category archive query.

    @Michael: I've been thinking about adding comments, but I don't really see visitors posting comments on people's linkblogs, except for kottke.org...
    But I might. :)

    wp-recent-links 1.2 is now out, with an rss2 feed for syndicating your links.

    markku, this seems to be what I was looking for, but from the info on your site it seems the 1.2 version still uses the myhacks file.
    have you considered making it a plugin instead?

    Hi, I was wondering if recent-links support categories? I'd really like to separate my links into different categories, perhaps even subcategories (for archiving purposes). If not, will future versions support this?

    I too am getting the

    Fatal error: Cannot break/continue 1 level in /home/chris/public_html/chris/wp/wp-admin/recent-links.php on line 478

    problem on link submission. Can somebody please post how you fix that problem?
    Additionally when I go to /wp-login.php I get an error:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/chris/public_html/chris/wp/my-hacks.php:3) in /home/chris/public_html/chris/wp/wp-login.php on line 254

    . Luckily I'm still logged in, and I'm afraid if I log out I may never be able to get back in without removing the hack.

    Nevermind, I solved both these errors. When I reopened my-hacks.php file I noticed I put a line break in between two hacks. For those familiar with php you can see where the obvious problem is (output being sent before headers). DOH! Carry on.
    BTW, Great Hack!!! Just what I needed to push me over from MovableType.
