Right now, I would like a dropdown_links template tag (similar to dropdown_cats) or equivalent settings under Options. I want to have lots of links but only show a few at a time.
The limit parameter of get_links looks very useful, so that only the ten most recently updated sites appear, for example. But it would be better to include it as a setting under Options. I tried to limit the number of visible links using get_links, but I got a MySQL error.
