Quick Links

Description

A WordPress plugin to show a series of images as “quick links” with the shortcode [quick_links].

By adding a line in your functions.php file, you can set the size of the images (defaults to 500×300px). See the Installation section for more details.

Advanced

  • To include your own stylesheet, add a file named quick-links-styles.css in your template folder.

Installation

  1. Install the plugin
  2. Look for the “Quick Links” item in the admin section and create as many as needed. Choose a featured image to be displayed, as well as entering a URL if it should link somewhere.
  3. Display it one of two ways:
    1. Add the [quick_links] shortcode in the page where you want the buttons to be displayed
    2. Add the following line of code in a theme PHP file
      if ( function_exists( ‘home_quick_links’ ) ) { home_quick_links(); }
  4. To change the size of the images, add this line of code in your theme’s functions.php file and edit the dimensions: add_image_size( 'home_quick_link', '500', '300' );
