Creating a “Links” widget manually from of a text widget?
Sure – just use a text widget and put the links in there. You may want to search the forum for text widget.
Am I correct in assuming then, that one can not control the links that would go into the newly created links widget, from the “Blogroll – Add Links” control panel. Correct?
I just like things all in one place I guess you could say!
I am new here with WordPress, and I am wondering also, “is there a reason for only 1 “Links” widget?”
That sounds right, but I’m not sure. Some of this stuff is theme-dependent and the theme I’m using doesn’t have a links widget. What I referred to was a text widget and you can have as many as 9 of those. (Look down at the bottom of the Sidebar Widgets page under Presentation).
Probably because the links widget displays thte entire blogroll I believe. The links widget does, I believe, have the option to display teh links within their categories if that helps.
drmike, that might be theme specific, because ChaoticSoul’s links widget has no options at all.
That’s Right. The theme I use is “connections”. This too have a Link widget but with no options
For clarity in regard to the existing Links widgets it’s important to note that none of the themes that do have Links widgets have Links widgets with “options”. The order in which links are displayed is alphabetically in accord with the Category we assigned to the links when we entered them into our Blogrolls. This will help you understand blogrolls, links and categories and their relationships.
