Controlling the order of links in the blog roll
I’m not sure what order you want your links to appear in, but the default for the themes I’ve used is alphabetic. Otherwise, it seems the only option is the “write your own in a text widget”, which of course makes it more difficult to add with the “add to blogroll” function.
The “add to blogroll” function really is nice, but not very easy to use if your blogroll (Links) have categories. You still have to go back to edit the added link to get it into the category you want it to appear under in your sidebar.
I agree that it would be nice if the blogroll/links widget was a bit more configurable to allow for more refined sorting.
I’ve got a suggestion that worked for my sidebar. (I have a lot of links, nearly 75 in total on my sidebar that I wanted to add, and will want to add more in the future.)
What I suggest you do is that since everything is done in alphabetical order, you create A Section (whatever link group you want), B Section (whatever group you want) C Section, and so on.
My blog is http://evilcowtowninc.wordpress.com/ or Evil Cowtown Inc if you want to see what I did. It’s working exactly like I wanted.
I take that back. I have more than 90 links. So, definitely creating a way to come up with Sections was very necessary.
