#1816 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Link Category before/after settings nonfunctional

Reported by: dachannien's profile Dachannien Owned by: markjaquith's profile markjaquith
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 1.5.2
Component: General Keywords: link category option bg|has-patch bg|dev-feedback
Focuses: Cc:


There are settings in the site admin panel (Links/Link Categories) for code to insert before and after each link as well as between the link and the description. While the option is properly inserted into the database, it is never used by get_links_list() in wp-includes/links.php .

The solution is simple - modify the db query in get_links_list() to ask for the three additional fields:

$cats = $wpdb->get_results("
            SELECT DISTINCT link_category, cat_name, show_images,
            show_description, show_rating, show_updated, sort_order,
            sort_desc, list_limit, 
            text_before_link, text_after_link, text_after_all
            FROM `$wpdb->links`  ...

and then use those values in the call to get_links:

                 $cat['text_after_link'],   ...

I can confirm this patch (applies fine against 2981) fixes the problem.

get_links_list() purposefully hard codes a list. If we honored before and after we would probably break most templates that use get_links_list().
