These instructions are for adding a blogroll to WordPress on your own domain. At this time we haven’t figured out how to add a blogroll to a wordpress.com blog, but it’s fairly easy to add one to WordPress that is hosted on your own domain.
To put the blogroll code on a single page:
Go to the USER section on your DASHBOARD, and scroll down the user page until you find an area called PERSONAL OPTIONS – this will be in the lower left. Un-check the box beside “Use the visual rich editor when writing” and save options. You will now be writing your page in plain text.
Go back to the writing section and select WRITE NEW PAGE.
Give your page a title and perhaps use an image that might be supplied with the blogroll code that you are about to add to your site. Adding an image will create a nice looking header above the list on your new blogroll page. You can also link the image that you use to the home url of the blogroll that you are adding.
Paste the blogroll code into the page. The blogroll code will not work if you are writing in Rich Text so please be sure that you have done the very first instruction that I listed and switched to plain text mode.
Save your page and check to make sure it’s working.
You could also put the code in your sidebar:
Go into your WP admin section and select PRESENTATION, then select theme editor and select the correct theme.
Once you have opened the theme that you are using, you’ll find that the theme is open to the CSS Stylesheet file but all the other files that belong to the theme will be listed on the right.
You want to select your SIDEBAR page.
Find an appropriate place in your sidebar for the blogroll code. You can put an image header above the blogroll if you like and then past the blogroll code into your sidebar. You may have to enclose the blogroll code with list tags < li > < / li > or < div > < / div > (no spaces between selected li or div codes, blogroll code should go in the middle of either of these codes. )
If you’ve posted the code in correctly you should have a new blogroll in your sidebar. If by chance the blogroll isn’t working go back and make sure that there are no spaces in the code. Usually the only space in the code is right after SRC.
I hope that you’ve found this information helpful.
