My Link Order allows you to set the order in which links and link categories will appear in the sidebar. Uses a drag and drop interface for ordering. Adds a widget with additional options for easy installation on widgetized themes.
Requires: 2.8 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.3.1
- Install and activate plugin
- Go to “My Link Order” under the Links menu and specify your desired order for your link categories and the links in each category
- If you are using widgets then replace the standard “Links” widget with the “My Link Order” widget. That’s it.
- If you aren’t using widgets, modify your template to use the correct filter (additional parameter seperated by ampersands):
Breaking Change Made in 3.1.4
If you do not use widgets to display links you must do the following: replace your call to wp_list_bookmarks() with mylinkorder_list_bookmarks().
My Link Order has been out since WP 1.5 or 2.0 (2006) and it’s been a struggle to keep it working smoothly. The taxonomy.php hack was hideous and a filter finally got added that let me avoid this. No more visiting the My Link Order page after every single WordPress update!
As of version 2.8.6 of the plugin I’m breaking backwards compatibility to add new features like a multiple widget instances. Keep using version 2.8.4 if you are not on WP 2.8 yet.
