In which I finally learn how to add a dynamic blogroll to my blog…
Those people who read this blog via the website rather than by rss (hi there!) will no doubt be pleased to know that I’ve finally added a blogroll to my site, listing some of the many other blogs that I like.
So, for those of you who, like me, need a little extra help with this complicated web-design stuff:
In google reader, create a tag for all of those sites that you want in your blogroll.
Download and activate the execphp plugin
In an html editor, add html, head and body opening and closing tags to the code you generated above
Echo every single line of this as follows: echo “\n”;
Surround everything with php tags
Paste the resulting code into a php widget in your blog and Robert is indeed your mother’s brother
Hope this is helpful!
Disclaimer- I’m sure it’s possible to do all sorts of damage with the php plugin, so please be careful and do this at your own risk. I will try and help getting this particular process working (confession- I had help from my own tame web designer) but can’t really offer support with the plugin in general.
