I've tried both the Links widget that comes with WP and the My Link Order widget that comes with that plugin, but neither will stop creating new columns for each category of links that is created. You can see what I mean by checking out the footer of http://sticksnstring.biz/.
I want to be able to display the most recent X number of links without them being separated into categories. I don't want to see the categories at all or if I have to, to be able to make them display like Category Name: Link Title. The site is already running Link Library and so whatever it is, it must play nice with your plugin.
Searching online shows me old plugins/widgets or tells me to hack the core files which I don't want to do. My fall back position is a widget I found that allows me to put php code in like html in the text widget.
Any suggestions on a widget?
