Nice idea... but why not use and extend the WordPress link table ?
By , for WP 4.5.3

The idea to enhanced the wordpress links section is good. But any implementation should at minima reuse existing features of wordpress (such as said link section) and build on it.

This plugin create a whole new system to manage link, totally incompatible with existing wordpress mecanisms.

I know that using existing features can be a hassle, but with wide used cms like WordPress, it's the way to go.

A strange plugin
By , for WP 4.5

This plugin does make link pages. Only thing is that it has verry little formatting options. Besides it insists to place a ugly dot in front of each link. Sorry to say I don't use it anymore.

Lethal Fata Errors Crashes WP Sites
By , for WP 4.1

I have used this on a dozen different sites and this month all have crashed caused by Fatal Errors from this plugin. I have deleted it and everything is fine. It is also causing 500 errors on our servers. Bad News.

Great plugin, responsive author, definitely a five star plugin
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin does exactly what it says it will, and Mat (the plugin author) has been impressively responsive to my numerous questions and requests for changes. Thank you for all the hard work you've put into this!

Great plugin! Speedy Forum Response (3 minutes)!
By , for WP 4.0.1

This is a versatile plugin that the developer keeps up to date when new versions of WordPress are released and it looks like he resolves 100% of forum posts. I posted a question in the Forum and had my answer in three minutes! Thanks to Mat for doing a great job!

possible future change
By , for WP 4.0

All in all this worked fine for my needs..*BUT* over the last 2 days I entered over 150 links. It was nice to be able to add things in like images and makes the link page more visually appealing. The problem arises when I need to change the link target for everyone of those. So its scroll down..change it..scroll back up and publish. I estimate it doubled my work time. So..two possible work arounds ( not a programmer just trying to be logical)

One: Cause the description box to open in min size instead of full so the link target is on screen without scrolling ..or.

Two: make it have a default setting in the drop down Screen Options so that when we hit *new link* it does not remove all our settings for our links input. Thanks for Listening
