Creating Database lists with WordPress Link tool
After a recent post about using WordPress as a CMS, Darren commented and asked EXACTLY how I was doing this. My test site isn’t publicly available. So the best I can do is give a screenshot play by play of what I’m doing.
- Create Link Categories for the way you want to organize your databases. This can be pretty much anyway you want. In the case of my test site I have 7 categories.
- Create your links in WordPress using the Links functionality. Make sure you assign them to the categories that you want them to appear in.
- Install the Blogroll links plugin
- Create pages for each of your database lists. Insert the proper code into each page. Here I’m incorporating the list into a larger page which is about Reference resources.
How you link to these pages is up to you.
It is a pretty nifty trick that I’d highly reccomend for folks who want to maintain links of lists as part of their website.
