LinkSummary is a WordPress plugin which allows you to add References to your Pages and Posts.
What does LinkSummary do?
LinkSummary scans a Page or Post for links and generates a ‘References’ section at the end of the post (like you may have seen on sites like WikiPedia). It’s easy to configure and features include:
LinkSummary is designed to provide you with a powerful and flexible way to include blocks of ‘Reference Links’ in your Pages and Posts.
- Include all Posts, or include individual Posts
- Include all Pages, or include individual Pages
- Include all Categories, or include specific Categories (Posts only)
- Optionally Add a super-script number to links
- Optionally replace links with a super-script number
- Skip numbering based on a CSS class (e.g. for compatibility with Twitter widgets)
- (Optionally) Automatically convert URLs in your content into hyperlinks
- Shortcode included to place References Summary anywhere you like
- Summary section is template-based and can be overriden in your theme(s)
But why did we build this?
One of our team members was working on a theme and wanted an easy way to add Reference lists – like you see in Wikis – to the bottom of some of the pages. And so, LinkSummary was born!
