Noob question

  • Hi,

    I’ve been doing a lot of reading and there’s something I just don’t seem to be getting.

    I would like to set up a page (not sidebar) that lists all the links from my blogroll sorted by category. Can someone point me in the right direction? The installation is http://bradford-online.com

  • If you make a new page template with the following included, this will show all the links in categories – with the name of each category as a title.

    <ul><?php get_links_list('name'); ?> </ul>

    Thanks JamesICT,

    That points me in the right direction. Now I just need to learn to make a new page template. I assume I can copy one of my theme’s templates and modify it. How does WP know to include it in the Templates drop-down? when I create a new page?

    Remember I’m not real fluent in WP. Is there a better way to go about this?

    you’re getting it! the file can be named almostanything.php and you put a name-for-it in a comment near the start of the file

    the instructions + examples are here

    Thanks Dgold,

    Exactly what I needed to know. I probably would have found the right article eventually, but sometimes after you read and read and read it gets overwhelming. Thanks for the pointer!
