In most cases with a blog post, we often tend to provide or share some links with our readers. For instance, you might want to link exchange or even share links to other blogs or any particular important website for lots of reasons. WordPress is the most friendly blogging platform that allows us to create a Links Menu and show them up nicely on the website in a menu or widgets for easy navigation.
If you are familiar with Blogger.com , you might also be familiar with “Blog List“, “Link List” and “List“. These are gadgets that you need to add and they basically display links to other blogs or websites which are your favorite (see image below).
The same way you can add external links in WordPress blog. In WordPress, you can distinguish links by assigning Link Categories. This is very similar to how we assign categories to posts.
For displaying these links in the blog with WordPress, we need to use widgets or menus. Once you click on Widgets on the sidebar of the Dashboard, we can drag and drop the Link Widget where we want the links to be displayed on the blog.
Like Blogger.com , we can also show links to our favorite blogging websites with WordPress. This is possible on Blogger.com only by adding gadgets. With WordPress, we can not only add links on the blog directly but also display them based on the categories.
