Usage

Adding and Editing Links

Visit the WP Links Page section of the dashboard to add, reorder, and edit the links.

Add links by entering the link URL/description and hit the add link button.

To reorder your links simply drag and drop them into place, then click ‘Save’ at the bottom of the screen.

When updating the links, press the edit button and make your changes. Click update to save your changes. Please do not try to update multiple links at the same time. The update button will only update its link, not any others.

Clicking the ‘Update Screenshots’ button on the this page can take several minutes depending on your connection. Please be patient while it retrieves new images. If for some reason it does not automatically refresh when completed, simply refresh the page to see the new images.

Reviews

Just what I needed!

I’ve been using this Pro Version plugin for over a year and just started using it for a second blog – it does exactly what I was looking for! Customer support is also VERY responsive – some of the quickest response times I’ve ever experienced. I highly recommend this plugin!

Perfect

I purchased the PRO version after using the free version for just a short time. The value of the options added into the short codes is well worth it. My question to support was answered almost immediately. 5 stars plus!

Pro version is awesome.

This review is more for the pro version as I had started using the free version and then found that without the detailed shortcode support it was not very helpful for my needs.

Looks great. Very easy to add links. Management can get a bit clunky when you have a lot of links but not the plugins fault. Highly recommended if you need to show rich links.

Thanks to the developers for making and updating it.

Excellent Plugin

The free version of this plugin is excellent and the paid version which i’ve used on a couple of sites is even better

Works great!

Works very well and makes it easier to discern what you might be clicking on BEFORE you do!
