WordPress recently announced that it plans to remove the Link Manager in 3.5. I’m wondering if anyone has developed an alternative Link Custom Post Type for the people still using blogrolls in their sites.
I heavily use the links-feature in WordPress along with the very good plugin Link Library, that extends the link manager to a very mighty tool. I have set up somewhat of a link database for more than a hundred entries. So I need the link manager! I hope the WordPress developers will publish it as a plugin, otherwise I would not know how to keep my links.
I have already been following the discussions around this closely. The main thing to do on my part will be to see about checking for the base links plugin presence and giving users a warning if not present.
