Researching a WordPress Related Links Solution

headmaster @ 10:07 pm

WordPress LogoI want to display a list of related links for each post on my blog; this very blog in fact. I also want to be able to add external links to the related links from my site seamlessly. It is unfortunate that WordPress doesn’t have such a feature as a default widget, being that it is something very common across the web nowadays. So I’m going to be installing and trying a variety of available plugins in order to find the features I want. Should I not find exactly what I want I will then resort to rolling my own.

Mass Import of Links (blogroll) on WordPress

headmaster @ 7:07 pm

WordPress DevelopmentI have several dozen links that needed to be added across several (nine) Word Press Installs. Adding them all one at a time was simply not an option due to the time involved in getting the job done. Having worked with Word Press for a while now, I figured the fastest solution was to simply import the mess of links straight into the WP databases.

I didn’t bother to look for plugins or extensions to do the job for the following reason: There was no prepared document with the information at hand.

This meant that no matter what solution I picked it was all going to have to be typed from scratch. Since this was going to be the case I figured that using a SQL document with the prepared inserts would be the most direct manner of handling the job.


How to customize the blogroll (links) in WordPress 3.3.2

headmaster @ 6:21 pm

WordPress DevelopmentI was looking for a quick way to display images in my blogroll in a way that would make the <li> within the widget draw in a horizontal line (see the red blogroll below) instead of vertically (see blue blogroll). That way the images stack up fitting more than one image link per row.

Take a look at the graphic below to see what I mean.
