Link Widgets Plugin For WordPress

This plugin has been retired. No further development will occur on it.

The default Links widget from WordPress lists all links from all link categories in a single location.  Link Widgets lets you create any number of links widgets, for your own choice of link categories.

Add a Category of Links from the left sidebar:

Add link Category
Add link Category

You can therefore be selective about which links to show on which pages by adding additional Links Widgets containing different Categories of links.

Add Links Widget to panel
Add Links Widget to panel

After adding the widget use the Widget Contexts to check which pages you want that particular Links Widget to appear on.

This can come in handy if you ever create a bookmarks section. Combine with Inline Widgets: Create the relevant Link widgets in the Inline Widgets “sidebar”, and organize your bookmarks section as you see fit using static pages.

This plugin is deprecated since WP 2.8, and is no longer maintained.
