Introduction

The Links plugin has been created by the folks at Geeklog. This plugin allows you to administer a directory of links for your website. The Links plugin is installed by default, and can either be disabled or uninstalled if you do not plan to use it.

Managing Links

Accessing The Links Plugin

  1. Log into your website through your web browser as an administrator.
  2. Click the Links link in the Admins Only block.

Creating A New Link

Renaming The Web Resources Link To Links

Note: In Geeklog versions prior to 1.4.1, the link to the Links plugin from the menu bar was labeled "Web Resources", which some users wanted to change. This change is no longer necessary as of Geeklog 1.4.1.

The Links plugin adds a Web Resources link to your menu bar. To rename the link:

  1. Open plugins/links/language/english.php in a plain-text editor.
  2. Find 114 => 'Web Resources' and replace Web Resources with the text you want (e.g. Links). Ensure that you keep the quotes and all other characters intact.
  3. Save your changes.
  4. Upload the file onto your webserver, overwritting the existing file.
