The plugin provides the shortcode 'links'. This shortcode shows all links having specified characteristics, following a specified template.
The plugin re-enables the Link Manager in WordPress and provides the shortcode 'links'. This shortcode displays a list of all links having specified characteristics, for example a link category name in your post. By default it includes a Facebook Like button for every link, but this can be easily disabled.
The plugin supports a customizable template for showing links. This enables you to use the shortcode to display links in any format you like, for example in a list or a table, with or without link images, etc. All relevant properties of a link are supported and listed on the Settings page of the plugin.
The typical format for the short code is
[links option1="x" option2="y" etc...]
The following options are available:
Dafault options can be changed on a 'Links Shortcode' page in the Settings menu.
Using the customizable template, all properties of a link can be displayed. An example template is included. This template uses the Name, Web Address, Description and Rating of your links. The Name will link to the Web Address.
If the Name starts with a date, formatted as: yyyy-mm-dd followed by ':', a separate property for the date is available.
Templates are fully customizable. For more information see http://www.apprique.com/community/wordpress-plugins.
Please note that the Description of a link has a limited length, but the WordPress UI does not show this. After saving changes to a Link in the Links section, WordPress only saves the first 255 characters. This has nothing to do with this Plugin.
