A new blogrollComments

I have completed the first version of my blogroll plugin and you can view the results here. At present it includes ten people as I wanted to stay true to James Shelley’s notion about value.

Spoiler alert: he made the list.

As previously mentioned, the blogroll stores entries using a custom post type then displays them by way of a shortcode which can be placed on any page. Each time the shortcode is triggered the blogroll.opml file is recreated so it is always up to date.

I have updated the site footer to show links to both the directory and blogroll. The directory is still valuable for discovery purposes but nothing beats explicit recommendation.

The plugin is available on GitHub - usage and styling info is in the readme.

I may shift the OPML link to above the list so it's more readily available. I think it will also help separate the intro quote from the list better.

I'd be interested to know what you think.

But that's a job for tomorrow. Well, actually later today!

Can't sleep so moved the blogroll OPML link. I think I'll leave the GitHub instance as it is for now.
