Help Finding / Coding a plugin (3 posts)

    I am pretty new when it comes to plugins, I have modified and built a handful of plugins but nothing to crazy.
    I have an idea for a plugin but am not sure where to start, if anyone has a link to a tutorial or a similar plugin, it would be appreciated.

    My basic need is this,
    A wordpress page with a custom template that has a table listing hyperlinks.

    Sounds easy, but what I am wanting to do on the ADMIN side is to a options page where a novice user (read knows no html at all) sees 2 input fields, one for the link text/title, and one for the hyperlink itself, a submit button, an "add another entry" button, and a button to delete a a listing. Add another entry would bring up a new pair of inputs with a delete button next to it.

    The goal here is so a novice can maintain a list of links in a form driven way.

    It seems simple, but it is outside the scope of the plugin tutorials I have found.

    Why not use the built in links, add them to a certain category? Then write a small shortcode to include that category of links within the page.

    Keeping it short: there is no user-friendlier option in wordpress to do that except using the

    default bookmarks
    OR custom post fields.
