Morgan’s Replacement Links Widget 0.2

I’ve just put up 0.2 of the Links Widget. This is just a quick off-the-cuff version for WP 2.1. It needs work, but it’s a step in the right direction. Note that I’m starting to change all the file names (since I’m adding more options to the widgets than just drop-down select lists) so deactivate the old plugin.

With this widget, I want to support multiple instances of it and be able to specify via a drop-down list in the Widget control panel as to which category you want displayed within that instance of the widget. That way you can drag different link categories around on your sidebars easily…

Please give it a shot and see how it works for you.

    So far, so good. It works well. I look forward to multiple instances, at the moment, all links are lumped together.

    I have the instancing part working now, as you can see. Now I just have to add the filtering part, but my shift at work is over and I have a family get together, so I’ll wrap this up tomorrow or the day after.

    Great! Thanks for re-working it for WordPress 2.1. I love this widget – one of the most useful ones (cannot do without) in my blog.
