FAQ

  1. Using all of the defaults, my category name has a bullet next to it. How do I get rid of this? This is a default value of the wp_list_bookmarks function. To remove it, add the category_before = '' and category_after = '' shortcodes. Your call should looks like this: [wp_list_bookmarks category_before = '' category_after = '']
  2. Using all of the defaults, the description doesn’t show. How do I add it? Use the show_description = true parameter. Your call should look like this: [wp_list_bookmarks show_description = true
  3. Where can I find more details about all of the available parameters? On the wp_list_bookmarks Codex Page.
