FAQ

Is there any RSS feed for my link dump?

Yes there is. you can call myLinksDumpRSS.php file to show your link dump RSS feed. There is
also an option to replace your feedburner address rather than http://yoursite/myLinksDumpRSS.php .

How can i customize the look of my link dump?

By default there are some predefined styles in myLinksDump/styles folder in which you set the
one you like the most. You can also put your stylesheet in myLinksDump/styles folder and then
activate it through admin panel.

How can i find page ID?

Click on Pages-> Edit link on wp admin area. Then click on the desired link and
wait for the next page to load. after this watch your browser address bar for
destination link it shows. It must be something like this:

http://www.xyz.com/wp-admin/page.php?action=edit&post=14

the last number in query string (14) is what we need.

What are the right places for putting “ and “?
  • <?php echo myLinksDump_show() ;?> must be out of content loop. Because if you put it in content loop,
    you’ll see lots of link dumps as much as your post entries.

  • <?php myLinksDump_Archive() ;?> must be in content area. usually the best place to put this code is
    right after <?php the_content(); ?> line in page.php of your theme.

How can I share my links with others?

Thanks to myLinksDump RSS output you can share your links with others. It’s good idea to write some lines in
about Archive page on how others can grab your links dump RSS output and use that in their blogs or sites.
Normal RSS address of your links dump is ‘/myLDRSS.php’ (e.g: http://www.xyz.com/myLDRSS.php),
but if you prefer you can burn this feed in feedburner and provide feedburner address instead.

What is Counter format?

if it’s choosen for linksdump to be shown with clicks stats of each link then by default you will see click
stat in a pair of parentheses. So if you would like to change display format you need to put your desired
format containig # character in which it reperensts clicks counts. for example if we like to show our stat like
[450 clicks] then we have to put [# clicks] in Counter format input box.
