Support » Plugin: WordPress Simple Link Library » How do I import my existing links?

  • Hi,

    I have quite a few links, visible to me on /wp-admin/link-manager.php
    However, when I installed this plugin, those links are not showing on /wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=bms_link

    Categories do show on /wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=link_category&post_type=bms_link , with the correct number of links

    Hi,

    Problem reproduced.
    The (old) WordPress Link manager /wp-admin/link-manager.php is not compatible with this plugin. This plugin was developed due to the fact that WordPress stopped development with the default Link Manager plugin.
    On old WP installations you will see after installing this plugin also still the good-old-Wordpress Link manager. I should have chosen a different name for this plugin, because when you upgraded your WP installation from version 3.x to the current version you now see two ‘Link’ items active in the left-menu in your dashboard.

    You should consider stop using the ‘Link Manager’ plugin, see: https://codex.wordpress.org/Links_Manager. This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress so from a security point of view a risk.

    There is however no export/import tool to automatically move your links created with the (old) WordPress link manager to this plugin. So in order for this plugin to show links, links must be created using the wp-admin/post-new.php?post_type=bms_link function.

    Regards, Maikel
