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.



Orderli adds an order input box to the links editing page. The order number lets you explicitly specify an order for the wp_list_bookmarks and get_bookmarks functions. Giving links an order number automatically overrides any sort order you provide with the orderby argument. The links are sorted in ascending or descending order depending on the order argument you provide.

On the other hand, giving links the same order number will apply whatever sort option you provided with orderby. For instance, leaving all links with an order number of zero will have no affect on ordering. This lets you create groups by giving sets of links the same order number. You can then sort within those groups with orderyby parameter.


  1. Upload orderli.php to your plugins directory.
  2. Activate Orderli in the plugins menu.
  3. Edit your links and provide the desired order number to each link.
