Excellent
By , for WP 3.9.1

I haven't been with WordPress long, so had to do some research to find out how to add the discontinued blogroll. This is perfect!

Easy to use & feature rich
By , for WP 3.9.1

After being confounded by another links plugin that was just way too complicated for my needs I found this and this is exactly what I need and more.

A Great Plugin to Create a Web Directory with your Links
By , for WP 3.8

I had some glitches with the plugin. Mat worked them out and now the plugin works perfectly. I was looking for a simple way to turn my existing WordPress links into a simple web directory. This is excellent and with the support of Mat - it can only get better.

I did buy the extra add-on for more categories. It is worth it to me.

Great plugin!
By , for WP 3.6.1

This ended a long search for a simple links plugin that wasn't overdone but was effective. This plugin rocks!

The best part is that it takes on the styling in your theme so you are not fighting some other person's CSS.

Great job Mat!

Nice plugin, could be even more attractive
By , for WP 3.5

Nice plugin, which I would like even more, if the following feature was added:
Categories of the links may be hierarchically structured. Unfortunately, the category name is not displayed, neither a child category. One has to build up its own way to display nested categories.

Good but missing useful controls
By , for WP 3.5

There are many things to like about this plugin, I especially like
1) being able to display entries that don't have links (despite the name). Useful for making non-linking lists (bibliography, people, etc.)
2) being able to create and display additional input fields

But it comes up short in a few important ways:
1) Can't sort output by Category, only by Title or Random
2) Page display for an individual entry only shows the title, none of the other fields that have been created/entered.
3) It would also be good to be able to format each field displayed.

It would be much improved if it incorporated shortcode options as, or more extensive than the WP Blogroll Links plugin.
And the page display really should have options to display all (or selected) input fields.

Works Well - Easy to Use
By , for WP 3.5

Has all the features you need, is simple to use, and has a handy link ordering (drag and drop) feature.

+1 all the way!
