Linkex Widget


This plugin has been discontinued. Please use WP-LinkEX: it’s much more complete and has no ads.

Many bloggers are using the fantastic application LinkEX to manage their links to and from other blogs, but there aren’t a widget that easily shows your links from LinkEX to the sidebar of your blog.

This is the simply role of LinkexWidget. It allows you to easily add a widget to your blog to display your links. Nothing more.


  • LinkexWidget configuration form


  1. Upload linkexWidget.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ folder
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  3. Go to Design > Widgets and add your LinkexWidget to your sidebar
  4. Enter the URL of the file that contain your links.

This file is created by LinkEX, and must be in the folder LINKEX_INSTALLATION_DIR/data/output/CATEGORY_ID

You can access to this file easily typing the URL in your web browser.

For example


How can I configure my LinkEX to show my links between li tags?

Go to your LinkEX administration and edit the category where are the links that you would like to show in your blog.

In the Template section enter something like:

<li><a href="{$URL}" title="{$ANCHOR}">{$ANCHOR}</a></li>

LinkexWidget adds automatically the <ul> tags.

Can I remove the link that adds automatically at the end of my LinkexWidget?

No, please… is the ‘price’ for our work, only is one link to one of our blogs
