Support » Fixing WordPress » Displaying Several Link Lists?

  • I have 3 different link lists (4 when I finish setting everything set up) and I would like to split them into 3 separate lists in my sidebar. I’ve searched the Wiki high and low, but no luck. I want to be able to display images inbetween the lists. Basically:
    (Tasty Cookies Image)
    Tasty Cookies list (list #3)
    (Chewy Cookies Image)
    Chewy Cookies list (list #4)
    (WP Link Love)
    Default WP Link list (list #1)
    Any tips and tricks to make this happen in the code? Help? Pretty please? With sugar and all that?

  • Try
    get_links_list(); is what I use on my blog to sort links and show them bunched by their categories. I guess that’s what you are looking for.
    If it’s not, there are the other links template tags anyways 🙂
    get_linksbyname(); is kinda neat, too.

    I couldn’t find anything in the Wiki that helped with what I need to do. I had read the get_links_list page, along with some of the others. I need:
    1. To be able to separate the list into 3 individual lists, allowing me to place unique images inbetween. I also want to display them in the order of 3, 4 and 1.
    2. To figure out how to display the last time a blog was updated. I know it can be done, I see it on other blogs, yet I can’t figure out how to make my blogroll do that.
    3. How to mark with an * a link that has been recently updated.
    I have them bunched by categories right now, but they are all squinched together in one list. There are no breaks inbetween the lists. I am only displaying 13 from each list at this time, so I am not sure if get_linksbyname will work for me, but I will check it out.
    Thanks for the details! I really appreciate the help!

    1. use
    <?php get_links(category, 'before', 'after', 'between', show_images, 'order',show_description,show_rating,limit,show_updated); ?>
    as follows:
    <?php get_links('3', '

  • ', '
  • ', '', '', 'asc','','','','TRUE'); ?>
    <your image here>
    <?php get_links('4', '

  • ', '
  • ', '', '', 'asc','','','','TRUE'); ?>
    <?php get_links('1', '

  • ', '
  • ', '', '', 'asc','','','','TRUE'); ?>
    this will show all links from category 3, with each link enclosed within

  • and
  • tags, then the links from category 4, and finally those from category 1. has comprehensive information about the tag.
    2. Read
    3. The answers to the above two, and (the part that deals with the link manager options), should help.
