    Thank you for your wonderful Morgan’s Replacement Links Widget.

    I have a question for you, why am I only allow to use your wdiget ONCE in the widget section?

    When I drag it to the sidebar widget to use, it disappear on the left hand side which mean I can not pull another instance of it to another different side bar. I want to be able to use it in different sidebars.

    Why is this?

    I am using WP 3.5.

    Any help in this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    I doubt this widget is even needed at this point, but it’s been a long time since I’ve looked at this code. I know that Automattic, the company behind WordPress and the folks who invented widgets in the first place, added drop-down features to all of the base widgets a long time ago.

    If there’s something else that I did and they haven’t integrated yet, please let me know and I’ll look at scheduling some time to upgrade things. But this is a 3.0 widget, which is rather, rather decrepit at this point. I’m somewhat surprised that most of my old WordPress plugins still work at all, to be honest, and that’s a testament to the WordPress team that they do.

    Hi Morgan,

    Thanks for the quick reply back. Since my php isn’t too strong I have been using plugins to help with the process.

    Unless you know of a php code which allow me to display a LINK CATEGORIES as a dropdown menu it would be greatly appreciated.

    I have been looking around and I have not been successful in creating a pulldown for one of my link category until I stumble upon your plugin. =)

    But unfortunately I was only able to use one instance of your plugin in the widget instead of allowing me to use it multiple times. I imagine this is probably due to your codes being out of date.

    In any case, if you can provide me with some php codes to accomplish what I want to do, it would be greatly appreciated. If not, no worries, I will continue to crawl the net for a solution.

    Thanks again for your plugin and your time.

    Hi Morgan,

    Do not worry about it. After much searching, I came upon another plugin which accomplish what I wanted to do.

    For others that might be searching for the same solution as I am, you can use the Blogroll Dropdown widget.

    Thanks again Morgan for taking the time to write back.

    All the best to you.
