The purpose of this plugin is to add the ability to output a list of link categories and a complete list of links with notes and descriptions.
This is a great plugin and you can do a lot with it, but it takes work to setup. Have a look at my dutch travel agencies page (it's using WP UI plugin for tabs and accordeon)
The biggest problem I had was figuring out all the options (and working around some bugs).
It doesn't make sense that Yannick does not provide a proper manual... because that would:
1. make the plugin more attractive
2. show off his writing skills
3. an opportunity to advertise the book he wrote
I installed, configured, then added links and NOTHING shows up. Reviewed the support issues and I am not alone. So, this is a FAT plugin that did not perform as described.
I've found this to be one of the most useful plugins on WordPress, and use it throughout two of my sites to engage members, capture input and build directories. The short learning curve pays back tenfold in the time savings. Also, the developer is very responsive. I love this plugin.
I installed this plugin months ago, as I was bitten by the bug to round up all of my links to present on my personal blog. This plugin seemed to hold promise, due to its seemingly flexible configuration (judging by the screenshots). However, once I got into it to attempt to put it to use, I found that the lack of proper documentation (I don't learn from looking at pictures - read: screenshots) an incredibly complicated UI made it too much of an effort to get past the learning curve.
Unfortunately, I'm going to uninstall this and look for something a little easier (and I'm a coder and engineer).
Best of luck to the developer, and if he does provide documentation and unclutter the UI at some point, I may try this again.
I am sure this plugin is very powerful based on the huge number of options it has, but it is so overwhelmingly complex that it is almost unusable. There is almost no documentation on how to use it other than a few links to example sites and a couple FAQs. If you go to the plugin homepage there is nothing. Could atleast put a basic quickstart guide together to get people up to speed? I am in IT and I am struggle to figure this thing out.
This is an amazing plugin. VERY helpful for managing and showcasing links for my students.
Thank you Yannick Lefebvre for all the effort.
I tested many link directory / library plugins and found this one to be the easiest to manage, use and implement into my site in the specific manner which I wanted to do so.
Was disappointed with the developer's lack of response to a support issue. The search function wasn't working as it should and after posting in the support forum the developer never responded over the course of 5 months outside of posting a note that I shouldn't "bump" a support issue by posting a follow up wondering if he had even read it as well as selectively deleting some of my posts in the forum. He seemed to pay more attention to moderating me than actually acknowledging there was an issue. Kind of surprising since the plugin was frequently updated. Would gladly have made a donation (and even stated so) to support the work on this plugin and my specific issue. Not even an acknowledgement of this.
Would have given this plugin a "Great" otherwise.
Great plugin. Solved many a design issue I had.
Easy to use, easy to work with.
I like what can be acheived with this plugin, but found it a bit complex to set up. Also I found the display to be a bit hard to configure.
This said, there are a lot of tool tips and helpful notes, so although not easy for a beginner it does the job and will be fine once learnt.
Things that would be nice to see improved would be a nice default layout out of the box and simple styling options.
4 Stars for the idea and ? if works more.
Good luck! :)
