Wordpress 'links' panel

Apr 5, 2012 3:36 AM

Anyone know of a way to only list 'pages' under the 'link's menu in Wordpress.

 

Example. A client wants to make a link from one Wordpress page to another so they select the text on one page and then hit the 'link' button in the editor panel which brings up a list of pages......and posts, and content blocks. Anyone know of a way to stop the posts/content blocks from being listed as they are meaningless to a client who only wants to link to pages.

 

Thanks

 

Os

    Don't use the Links widget and use the pages widget?

    Create a category for the links if you want to sort them.

     

    But if they are on a page, you highlight a word, click the link button and then click the arrow next to "Or Link to Existing Content" where there is also a search box.  If this is missing something is messed up with your theme and that's another topic for another discussion.

    Osgood, I am sorry if I am missing your point but does the first section of this page cover it?

    Osgood, I think I understand what you want.

     

    Is the answer in here?  I don't have a clue what that's about but it looks like there might be some clues in there?

     

    This really is out of my comfort zone which pretty much in PHP, is anything beyond "Hello World!"

    If it works, you have to tell me what it means and when I attain WWW domination, I will remember you.

    Again, over my head but could you disable the links menu in the dashboard and add your own with less options?
