Refgenerator is used to insert at the end of any post the list of all external links used in your post.
The links are sorted in order of appearance. Refgenerator is a 2 in 1 plugin in such a way that it can generate the
list using 2 differents methods (ie you can use mainly PHP or pure Javascript to generate and sort the list).


  1. Unzip into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory. If you’re uploading it make sure to upload the top-level folder.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Visit your Refgenerator options (Options – Refgenerator) for WordPress 2.3.x, (Settings – Refgenerator) for WordPress 2.5.x


Q: Why doesn’t it work for me?

A: The problem is with your WordPress theme. Either the template does not include get_header() in its templates pages or the author of the template forgot to include wp_header() in the header.php file and/or wp_footer in the footer.php of the WordPress theme. Be sure to look at the default theme, or other quality themes (eg: standards-compliant XHTML and CSS) to see how they work

Q: I’m using the advanced method but it it does not work for me ?

A: To use the advanced method you must have a well understanding of html and of the WordPress Loop to determine the html class and id attributes to make the plugin works. If you don’t know them because you’re not familiar with coding and/or debugging html I shall advise you to use the PHP method.

Q: Can I change the generated list class attributes or the generated list appearance ?

A: Of course, in order to do so, you must edit the CSS files you’ll find in the css subdirectory in the plugin directory
