How do I style the list?

You can style your list by adding the following code to the style.css file in your chosen theme:

/* Styles for Simple Link List Widget */
.widget_link_list ul {} /* Style for unordered list */
.widget_link_list ol {} /* Style for ordered list */

Reviews

Great!

Works like a charm. Nice, easy to use interface that has all the right options.

Thanks!

Stopped working…

Compatible up to 4.2.7.. we are now at 4.4.2…
Suddenly started throwing 404 errors on all links, after installation of latest wordpress.
Was a great substitute for defunct “blog roll”..
Now what to do!
