    Hello tadesse,

    The Simple Links are a custom Post Type but they are not designed to be used as category page or links page.

    The display of the links should be achieved by using a shortcode or the widget.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello Mat,
    this is all fine,
    You say: “but they are not designed to be used as category page or links page.”

    I can see that,
    but due to the WP structure all these links exist and could be used …

    so:
    – why not using it?
    – and why should they be unusable?
    – any other custom post has all functions inherited be post_type post or page …

    I would use it …
    As I do with custom taxonomies here: “custom post type plant typ = tree”: http://pflanzen-bilder-kaufen.de/pflanzentyp/baum/

    This is the original link structure for a link category:
    http://ktse.de/?taxonomy=link_category&term=links (it works)

    I hope I could be a little bit uh upgrading, up bringing, rethinking?
    Anyway, I think it would be great.

    Hi Tadesse,

    You are welcome to try to use them in this way. To make your permalinks work try resaving them.

    Once you get that to work you will have to retrieve the post mets for all the links data. You can do this in template file or through you functions.php theme’s file.

    I have not tested this nor will I support it, but luckily WordPress lets you think outside to box to achieve things like this.

    Cheers.
