  • Add Links and Link Categories
  • Insert shortcode [links] or [links lm-category="Term Name"] in your page.


Define the available classes in your themes' stylesheet: link-image, link-name, and link-category.

Use custom template

The [links] shortcode includes the template from templates/shortcode-links.php. If you'd like to use a custom template, copy shortcode-links.php into the templates/ directory in your theme and also implement the following example snippet:

 * Custom [links] shortcode template
function custom_links_template() {
  return get_template_directory() . '/templates/shortcode-links.php';
add_action('links_template', 'custom_links_template');
