Blogrolls to disappear?

  1. The new WordPress 3.5 over at wordpress.org has been removed. I understand that wordpress.com installs the latest and greatest. For those of us who want to maintain the blogroll, what do you recommend?

    The blog I need help with is alanoldstudent.wordpress.com.

  2. I'm sorry but I don't have an answer to that WordPress.ORG question. Please post it to the WordPress.ORG support forums http://wordpress.org/support/

  3. Just a minute now. I think you may mean that you want to move content into a WordPress.org install and want to know how to retain your WordPress.com blogroll when you do that. I tagged this thread for a Staff response. If you subscribe to the thread you will be notified when they respond.

  4. Looks to me like I wasn't very clear. My question was about my WordPress.com site. I also maintain another WordPress site not hosted on WordPress.com. On such a site, I can install a plugin or write a widget.

    My question was specifically about the site I maintain on WordPress.com servers, http://alanoldstudent.wordpress.com/.

    Currently, it has a blogroll. I understand that WordPress.com has a multisite installation on which it hosts accounts like mine. It also maintains the latest and greatest versions of WordPress. It is not possible for me to add on plugins, as I can for the other site I maintain.

    So my question is this:

    • Will WordPress.com remove the blogroll functionality?
    • If so, will we get warning? Can we rescue it via some other means?

    Regards,

    Alan OldStudent

  5. Hi there,

    There hasn't been any decision made on this yet. If we do make a decision, some stopgap will be put in place so you don't lose those links irretrievably.

    I hope that helps!
