No, I don't think that will work. Previously I had three categories: Blogroll, Forgotten Gems, Links
Blogroll was links to blogs funny enough
Links was links to other stuff
Forgotten Gems were links to old posts that I personally thought were some of my best. I had WordPress display 5 random ones in this category.
I had WordPress display all my blogroll and other links all the time. I try to be selective in what I link to. (Sometimes :-P)
I never tried your change but I read your link, it seems to display all links neigh categories.
All bookmarks included, regardless of Category ID, Category Name, or Category ID
Sorts the list by name
I scorlled way down, if I set the limit does that limit all the categories or just the one I want? Furthermore does it randomly choose 5 like I used to do, or just display the first five every time? It appears looking at the PHP that if I passed in 5 I would end up with 5 in each category. Previously I only limited/randomized the one category. That is why I created it.
I like the old functionality better, and I like the old simple call in my template better than having to pass in paramaters to try and fake the old functionality. Not everyone is comfortable editing PHP or maintaining there own template. This functionality was easy to add through the old menu system.
Thanks for trying though...
