Hi, could you tell me how the auto-process function would deal with a (custom) link post and an author box (with links) within the text field?
The plugin works by going through the actual post content and extracting all the links in it, so it’ll scan through anything which is in there. If your author box is outside, e.g. in a template file or similar, it won’t be checked for links.
It only operates on the actual post/page “single” view, not on archive/home pages.
By default LinksSummary places the references it finds at the end of the post content, which might be above an author box/etc – so you may want to add the shortcode to your theme directly and turn off the ‘Generate Summary’ option.
Hope that answers your questions,
Thanks for your reply. I guess I will just try it. Can’t really go wrong for $10
I definitely won’t disagree with you there! Hope it works well for you!
It didn’t. Unfortunately messed with styling of ’ – and other signs. Oh well, I might use it somewhere else. GLWS
Hi awareness, rather than just stating that it messed with styling of apostrophes, can you be more specific please? We add no CSS other than wrapping long links so we’d be really interested in seeing your issue and solving it for you. Can you email firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the website in question and the plugin running so we can see the issue first hand?
Nothing to do with your plugin, to clarify. Already tested it on a clean install and works fine.
The theme I (have to) use is messed up in many ways. For one it uses icons with a custom woff font and proved to mess with the layout when installing other plugins too. Don’t worry
Perhaps I can give you access to a dev environment later, but that’s not up yet.
Aha! Good, so nothing is wrong with the plugin then, that is good news
Yes please send it over, we’d like to try and help if we can when its all up and running
Why thank you
Nice Plugin. One suggestion is you should give the Label (References) as user option. Many would like to call it something as Related Links, Useful Links etc.
Thanks for the suggestion – we’ve got a little tweak to upload shortly, so we’ll definitely do that. The whole ‘references’ section is actually a template which can be overridden, but that’s overkill to just change the label.
cool plugin, added to favorites for later purchasing
Glad you like it!
Would this still work for me? I ask because for my site videos are published by adding urls to the posts body and once published the link is not there anymore because the video has published in its place.
Would your plugin still pick up that theres a YouTube url there or no?
Hi, Thanks for getting in touch!
If you’d like to drop us an email (email@example.com) with a link to an example page (and if possible a log-in for your WordPress), so we can see what you mean, we’ll have a quick look for you – but LinkSummary works on the post as it’s output, so as long as it contains links at that point, it’ll work.
If the post is converted or amended by your process when being saved and only contains the YouTube embed tags or similar, then it probably won’t pick them up.
I’m going to email you right now
Great – got your email, will look into it ASAP for you (in reality, a bit later on today as monday mornings are always manic!)
I’m going to try it. Can I change the “References” to something else like “Credits”?
Yup, you can change that in the config! Re: our chat on email, looking to add a feature which will definitely support what you want (links in the text), although I can’t promise exactly when (next few weeks). So if it doesn’t work as is, it should after the next update!
I’m very happy with your plugin but I just noticed that its conflicting with text that is in bold font. I’ll send you an email with the screenshots. Hope you can help out
Hi! Thanks for the info (email received), we’ll check it out.
It would be awesome if you can make references into a drop down similar to Upworthy.com’s “Show Transcript” section. Yours would say “Show References” instead. That way all the reference links do not show and a nice and clean look is kept for all posts Heres a link that shows “Show Transcript” under a video. Just a thought
I’ll pop this on the list we keep for future development as it’s not a bad idea at all!
LOVE THIS PLUGIN!!!!!!!!
I’ve been trying to find something for a reference link for ages!! This is great!!
Is there a way to make the Title Bold and the footnotes a tad smaller and italicized?
Thanks! We thought it’d be really useful when we wrote it
You can edit the .css file in the plugin directory to customise it (although we’d suggest you always keep a backup of your amended version).
If you’re stuck on exactly how to achieve what you want, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you out a bit more
Hi there, for a customer we use ACF so we collate several posts within pages to compose “one page”. Each posts has references. Therefore, we are looking for a plugin that is a smart enough to screen references, and create the table of references on the fly at the end of each page. References can be just notes and not necessary a HTML link Would it be possible to run this with yours? Thanks in advance.
LinkSummary works by scanning the content of the current Page (or Post) for links and then creating a table of them.
So although it’s not something that it can do out of the box, it might be possible as an extension – how do you denote a reference? This isn’t really something we’d look at add to the plugin, but might be possible as a piece of custom work.
