Parent categories for links… “Link directory”

  • It’s good that it is possible to make subcategories for the posts, but what about the links? If one has many, many links that one would like to share, it doesn’t seem reasonable to have to have a mile-long sidebar displaying them. Wouldn’t it be neat to have a Yahoo-esque link directory? It seems like just about everything is there that would allow it to be done, with the exception of adding link subcategories. Seems like it would be handy to have. Is this possible to do already, or is there a plugin available to acheive something like this? Will I have to make a plugin myself and then release it? That’d be a fun undertaking, but it would certainly be great if this is already possible… Suggestions?

  • anyone?

    There is currently no sub-category feature in the Links Manager, and I don’t know of a plugin that provides it.

    Also, please do not crosspost.

    Sorry about the crossposting, I thought it might fit into more than one category, and I wanted to make sure it was seen.. Thank you for replying!

    I’m very interested in this one :). I’m wanting to create a “recommendations” site with WordPress and I want a clean way to organize a bunch of links.

    Bump. I’m looking for a way to group links by parent categories. Anything out there?? Thanks.

    Is there an option to do so? I’m very interested in this one for my own blog 🙂

    Hmm.. No answer yet?

    Anyone figure this one out? I’m thinking of writing a plugin, but the way I see it, it’d be pretty complicated, probably would need to update the database and hack wordpress.
    So before I get started,
    1. is there a simpler way to achive this?
    2. has anyone done it yet?
    3. would it be simpler to integrate a directory script?
    4. are there any pland in the near future to add this as a standard wordpress feature?

    I just posted the same thing, didn’t realize someone posted this. This basically messes up the whole idea for my site as I have quite a few pages with content…… 🙁 🙁 🙁

    Can’t believe WordPress is written so that every part of the tree unfolds… odd.

    This is it?? :

    <?php wp_list_pages(‘sort_column=menu_order&depth=0&title_li=’); ?>

    This is about link subcategories not pages, you can have sub pages…

    Oh okay, yes you can have the, but how can you make the menu expand only the sub pages of the parent page you click on instead of EVERYTHING?

    try this plugin: http://robm.me.uk/projects/plugins/wordpress/list-subpages/

    now back to the subject, anyone have any idea?

    Did you mean something like that: http://www.evitanet.info/links/

    In that case, this is a plugin named links page, you can grab it from this http://www.asymptomatic.net/wp-hacks site.

    that’s pretty nice, but i’m looking to be able to have sub categories in links. oh well, I guess ther’s no easy way yet, so I guess i’ll have to code something myself.

    That’s nice, but I need the abilty to have subcategories in the links, like a directory.
    Oh well, I guess I’ll have to figure something out myself.
