This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Collapsing Blogroll


Collapsing Blogroll allows you to put your built-in blogroll on a page or in a post. Just put
[collroll] in the place where it should appear. The categories can be collapsed. No extra
database table is needed. You can add new links as you did it in the past.


The plugin Link Summarizer isn’t compatible to Collapsing Blogroll. If you want to use both
plugins on your blog you have to disable the link summarizer in the post or page using Collapsing
Blogroll. Create a new custom field named lnsum_show and set the value to 0 to disable it or to 1
to enable it.

Older wordpress versions

Collroll is only tested with WordPress versions from 2.5 to 2.7. I don’t test my code with older versions.
It doesn’t make sense to drive your old Trabi (an old German car) when you could have a Ferrari for free 😉
