Alt Link Text can be used to modify the link text and title attributes of links in page lists, and to remove pages from page lists completely. By default, links in page lists generated using wp_list_pages use the page title as both the link text and the title attribute. This plugin adds "Alternative Link Text" and "Alternative Title Attribute" fields to the Write Page and Manage Page screens which can be used to specify alternative link text and title attributes. It also adds a checkbox that can be unchecked to remove a page from these lists.
This can be useful if your page titles are too long for your navigation menu (e.g. "Terms & Conditions" could be abbreviated to "T&C" to save space), or if you just want them to be different (e.g. you might want your home page to have "Welcome" as its title but to be linked to as "Home" in your navigation menu).
Alt Link Text has now evolved into Page Lists Plus.
