Add WP's Blogroll (URL List) to the Content Area on a Static Page

Blogroll Content Static Page

Best Answer Jim , 18 July 2013 - 12:03 AM

HA! The Content Sidebar or the Universal Sidebar (both extensions by Pagelines) accomplish the same thing I've just discovered.

I need to give a Client the ability to add URLs using WP's Interface. She is not a Tech person but could handle this and would leave other settings alone. The Links Page on her site will be a static page with only a Content Area, no sidebars. I have searched and browsed but can't locate either code or plugin or whatever that will allow me to do this. Please point me in the right direction. I would also be interested in any PC/MAC/Web/Phone apps that would give a client the ability to write posts (with or without images), and add links so they could avoid the WP Interface altogether. Thank You!

I found out how to do it in a Full Width Sidebar. I would be interested to know if there is a way to accomplish this with a code insertion. Thanks

Hi Jim,

 

I am somewhat confused by the question.  Are you trying to add a blog (latest posts) to a static homepage? If so, then use Special Recent Posts, a free plugin that you can find at WordPress.org.  It will let you do just that.

 

Or, are you trying to add a list of links? Your topic title and the topic itself are saying both, so I'm not sure which.

 

As for remote posting from a mobile device, there are several plugins.  This is one:

A list of Links on a static page named links. The Blogroll came from the title WP defaults to in the links widget which I've found out is really a category.

I've figured out how to get it done with a Full Width Sidebar on that page and how to change the title by manipulating link categories.

Next I need to change the styles. Is styles.css the place to do this or is there a Pagelines approach I could use?

I'm mocking this whole thing up at

The Mobile Device link takes care of that very nicely.

Thank You!

Jim,

 

If you're going to add CSS code to style any part of your site, I recommend adding the CSS to Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code.

It seems to me there has to be some code that would enable you to include that links module within a static page but I just can't find it anywhere. Now I'm going through wp php files trying to figure out how the widget does it.

Hi there,

 

You won't be able to add php code for the blog roll into the content area of the page without a plugin, something like -

However you can add the links as html, but then you'd need to manually update them each time etc.

I need to provide a client with the ability to add links herself. She is could be easily taught to fill out a form (WP Links) but hard coding is beyond her skill sets. I just found

. I see if that works as advertised. It would open a lot of possibilities. Thanks

 

UPDATE: It works as advertised. If it conflicts with anything I'll note it here.

 

Thank you for your help!
