So, a simple, stupid question…
I can access my posts by category, for instance by going here:
Is there a similar [hidden, apparently, or non-existent] relative URL to which I can go and have my links listed out in some fashion automatically? Or, alternately, is there some [ shortcode ] I can enter on a page to output a link list with some parameters?
If not, why isn’t this fairly basic functionality part of the core WP codebase? It really should be. Just my opinion. I mean, what’s hte point of having an entire section of the admin panel devoted to adding links, if there’s no simple way of outputting or viewing them or showing them to your end users?
I know, there are a few so-so plug-ins for it. I’m just wondering if there’s some better native way of doing it that is so arcane nobody has documented it in admin panel’s ‘help’ drop-down (which is thus not especially helpful)…
See what I’m saying?
Basically, I’d just like to be able to output a simple, stupid list of links, preferably with their descriptions. Maybe even with their URLs listed separately, if I was feeling silly… Oh, and with any and all categories assigned to the links displayed below them so people can category-browse the links. For instance clicking on the “support services” category or the “government” category.
Seems weird that different “things” (posts, links) are treated a bit differently. If there’s a rolling archive of posts, it seems like there could / should be a rolling archive of links too?
