    Ideally I want my client to use the built-in WordPress links manager to add links.

    However, I’m looking for more control over the output in my theme. The wp_list_bookmarks function has many options but still outputs as a list.

    How can I get those variables out separately and put them in a table, for example? I think I need to do something with a PHP foreach statement, but I’m still learning that stuff.

    Basically, I’m looking for something like this:

    Link Title here
    Link description here

    Thanks in advance to anyone helping out with this!


    I suppose a foreach would work, but why do you need to put it in a table?

    Can’t you just take the list and style it accordingly?


    I’m not quite able to write the code for this myself, so what would be great is a code snippet that I could tweak/cut/paste.

    As for the second question, I’ve already thought this through and I want to display this information in tabular format, so I want to go with a table.

    I know what you mean though, and if I can’t figure out how to do it right, I’ll probably resort to making the list look like a table. But that’s kind of a bad approach. I figure as long as there’s an HTML element for a table, I should use it for making tables.


    Oh yes, by all means if it’s tabular data you should be using a table. It’s just a “list of bookmarks” sort of sounds like a “list” to me ;)

    This should work for you:


    Ah, that’s pretty cool. I got it to work like I wanted.
