Add last post and time to your blogroll links! Download link below.
One of the disadvantages to using wordpress is that it can be often times very complicated to get the same behavior out of it as blogspot. One of my favorite plugins for blogspot is one that keeps track of all of the links in your blogroll, tells people when those pages were last updated, and also what the title of their last post was. There is evidence of this sort of functionality in WordPress, but I was very hard pressed to find out how to take advantage of it! That is why I wrote the Blogroll Fun plugin.
The blogroll fun plugin is a simple drag, drop, and activate installation. It automatically fills in the rss field for all of your blogroll links and then communicates with our server to find out when the links on your blogroll were last updated. You don’t need to worry about anything, it is simply drag, drop, and activate. You are given the option to display the last updated time and or last past below each link in your blogroll as you please.
Installation is simple. Simply download, unzip, copy to your plugin directory and then activate the plugin. The blogroll fun plugin replaces the default Links widget that comes with wordpress. Its behavior is nearly identical to the default widget. Settings can be found under design, widgets and then editing the Links widget. Once installed you will have the option to select whether or not to display the last update time, last post, and also the order your blogroll should be sorted, whether by name or last update time.
