Support » Fixing WordPress » I can not find my links? Where are they?

  • I have searched through all files on my server looking for the actual file that has my links. I know I can use the built-in WordPress link manager which works fine and my links are there but when I access this file on the server they are not in any where I have looked. They are not in any of the files that I would expect to find them in sucuh as {link-manager.php} I have looked everywhere so now even if they were point blank infront of me I would not see them

    Clueless and feeling oh so dumb

    They’re stored in the MySQL database. Why not use WP’s link manager?

    The reason I prefer not to use the WP’s link manager is that I have multiple links that I could just copy and paste from one of my other sites, plus it likes to alphabetize them and I prefer not to. Thanks for the link location.

    It’s on your webspace on your host server. You use phpmyadmin to look at it.

    Not a good idea unless you really know what you’re doing.

    Class as in? If it’s something to do with display, you do that in the css file: style.css usually.

    There’s just no reason to dink around in the database on a normal basis.

    I’m trying to use the snap preview plugin and you need to add a no_preview class to the link

    You would need to do that in the style.css file. It’s nothing really to do with the database at this point. And I’m not familiar with the plugin so really don’t have any idea what you actually need to do.
