Bring Back Link Cateogrys Page

  1. ttech5593


    In WP 2.1, I don't like the new Link system. Mainly the removal of categories link in the admin area, now instead of choosing what you want before and after each link and how you want each link sorted for each category you have to set it in your template. So instead of making a small change with an easy to use interface, you now have to edit the code in your template? You also removed the edit category link. I thought the idea of WordPress was to make blogging easy. I'm not sure if that really makes blogging easy.
    Your link manager page (http://codex.wordpress.org/Links_Manager) shows the nice easy to use interface that I liked with categories. What ever happened to something simple like wp_get_linksbyname()? Don't get me wrong the new add links page is a lot nicer, I like it, just not the removal of the category's page.

    I had the same feeling when opened the 2.1
    Miss the link management prior to 2.1, it was much more convenient, I would like to see it back, miss the random display, as much as the setting the number of links to be displayed and separate categories (now they are stacked one under another).
    Hope WP only rushed with the release of 2.1 and they didn't have all the time to fix everything, so that, that was the reason for this.

    daddo, sorry to tell you this but that is not the case, the link categories were purposely removed. I do hope though that they bring it back.

    Still fighting linking issue. It's still a bastard to get a link URL by its name. Its not simple anymore. You are making us write more code.
