    Exactly what I look for in a plugin. Does the job without bloat or needless complexity.

  2. Jason

    Works well for my links directory. I would prefer to have some options to style the links.

      Hi Jason,
      A while back we took a run at building in options to style links. What we found is there were so may different implementations of the links that users are doing that is was virtually impossible to cover all the possible use cases without creating an over bloated disaster. Instead we opted to allow the links to follow the theme styles and assist any user with custom styling if desired.
      Please submit a support request and I will be more than happy to help you style the links.

    I had an issue with the plugin and Matt fixed it within 2 hours. I have never seen support this responsive. Unbelievable.

    Thank you. And thank you again, and again. I think the bulk edit info was something I should have known, and yet, there you are, making my life easy. The plugin is great – exactly what I needed, and truly simple. Thank you for writing it, and thank you for incredibly support. Wow.

    I really gotta say, the Simple Links and Simple Links Pro plug-ins are great for the simplicity and level of support.

  6. Rachel

    I already owned display by category so it made sense to upgrade to the new pro plugin. Upgrade was easy. Delete one and add the other.
    I can’t really notice a difference with the display by category except that is still works. The visual short codes are a plus as well as the export settings.

  7. John S

    Really swell enhancement to any already useful plugin. Highly recommended.

  8. Mika

    Everything works without issue. I’m taking off 2 stars because it does not have style options. It matches the theme styles without an option to change to something else.

      I’m very sorry to hear you are not fully satisfied with the plugin. As a pro customer you automatically have priority support available. Please reach out to me via the contact form and allow me to help you style the links.
      Again, I am very sorry you are not fully satisfied with the plugin.

    Picked up the pro version today and I gotta say, I love the export feature. I didn’t understand how to find it but I used the contact form and Matt got back to me witin an hour and pointed me to the documentation. I would have paid 22pounds for the support alone.

    This plugin is working great, the widget has some fantastic options, and when I did have a problem (user error!), the plugin developer was incredibly responsive on the forums.

    I really like this plugin because it does exactly what I need. Hopefully the developer will keep it up-to-date and maybe comes with some more features in the future. I think this pluging can be used for almost every purpose related to the usage of links. It is very flexible and gives you a lot of possibilities for usage one way or the other. I will probably buy the premium add-ons as well, its worth it.Thanks very much for the good work!

    I can only recommend Mat for his plugin and his advanced plugins for categories and csv import export.He was always on top and fast when necessary, and updated the plugins according to my needs!5 stars or more!

  14. lingkang

    Has all the features you need

  15. baltoed

    All in all this worked fine for my needs..*BUT* over the last 2 days I entered over 150 links. It was nice to be able to add things in like images and makes the link page more visually appealing. The problem arises when I need to change the link target for everyone of those. So its scroll down..change it..scroll back up and publish. I estimate it doubled my work time. So..two possible work arounds ( not a programmer just trying to be logical) One: Cause the description box to open in min size instead of full so the link target is on screen without scrolling ..or.Two: make it have a default setting in the drop down Screen Options so that when we hit *new link* it does not remove all our settings for our links input. Thanks for ListeningEd

    This is a versatile plugin that the developer keeps up to date when new versions of WordPress are released and it looks like he resolves 100% of forum posts. I posted a question in the Forum and had my answer in three minutes! Thanks to Mat for doing a great job!

    Not sure what to put here, so far plugin worked well out of box.

  18. joleksow

    This plugin does exactly what it says it will, and Mat (the plugin author) has been impressively responsive to my numerous questions and requests for changes. Thank you for all the hard work youve put into this!
