Links and Lists

  • Hey guys,

    WordPress was working beautifully until I had a problem with the Links for the sidebar. I have some (two) links that I wanted to appear there, so I set them up in my control panel and placed them under the category “Friends” (which is the only category there). In this category, I set it up so that it would have a <b> before the tag and before the description would have </b>< br / >. When I went back to the page, I saw no difference.

    Any solutions? Here’s the link: http://journal.jcosta.net

    Also, do any of you know where (and if there is) there is an extension that (when you mention a name from your links in an entry) links the name to the URL added to the name in the link?

    Cheers.

  • Looks like I’ve got the same problem. Since the upgrade to 2.0, WP isn’t outputting the formatting anymore before and after the link… I hope this can be fixed, because it’s a loss to the flexibility of WP’s link system. 🙂

    The Auto Links plugin will allow you to automatically link text in a post to a URL.

    That text can be anything, a news site, a name from your links list, whatever it just needs to have a URL and you can link to it by using keywords. The key words are added via a dashboard interface or with a tag in the post text itself.
