    there is a incompatibility with another plug-in: Link Page v1.0 won't work if you have Kimili Flash Embed (v0.3) installed/activated. maybe there will be a fix sometime?

    i have read the posts, i have checked out the sites though ringmaster timed out, and i still can't work it out. feel like a dolt.

    i am merely trying to use:
    wp_get_linksbyname('current')
    where current is a category on my blog
    and yet
    the posts which are in this category do not appear in the list

    i don't need any fancy popdown lists
    merely a list of significant posts which i would like to have in the sidebar

    is there a plain english way to go about this?

    Great Plug-in! How do I customzie the dropdown? Like getting rid of the button, so users can simply select from the dropdown with a single click to access pages. And also customizing colors etc?

    Love the plug-in. I've got a stupid problem that I can't figure out. How do I alphabetize the category list in the pulldown? I know it has to be simple, but just not getting it. Any help appreciated.

    I love this! Perfect!!

    Can anyone explain how to apply the CSS to the drop down box? I can't seem to make it work. It is as wide as the widest item in the list, but when you choose that item, a few of the letters are cut off. Here is what I did:

    1. Created a "Page" in WP containing ONLY the tag <!--linksdropdown-->

    2. Edited the plugin itself, to include a class:

    $output .= '<form id="linkcatselect" class="dropdown" method="post"><select name="linkcat">';

    3. Added the following to the stylesheet:
    .dropdown { width:175px; }

    But I get no change in the width of the dropdown. What stupid thing am I doing wrong? BTW I also tried making the width 375px and still no change.

    Here is the links page. You can see that if you select "Midwifery and Childbirth Links" it gets truncated.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Wouldn't you know, I figured it out right after I posted. Sorry.

    class="dropdown" goes in the SELECT tag, not the FORM tag.

    Here is the corrected code:

    $output .= '<form id="linkcatselect" method="post"><select name="linkcat" class="dropdown">';

    Everything else in previous post is correct, and it works just super!!
