Is it not possible to display the listings newest to oldest? I have tried to change ASC to DESC vice versa and nothing changes. I want to show the newest listing on top.
It is certainly possible. Are you looking to order Lists or List items? They do have different shortcode parameters. For Lists it is orderby and List items it is item_orderby. Please confirm if you are using the correct shortcode. If the problem persists, please email to email@example.com with your WordPress admin login, so we can check. Thanks
Can you provide me with the actual “full” shortcode to display my most recently added list elements. I must be missing something simple. Right now, it displays oldest to newest and I can’t seem to get it to reverse. Thanks.
Please post what you are using a shortcode now – that will help us provide correct shortcode for a single list or all lists or category and also understand what might be missing or if it is a bug.
Generally it the parameter should be something like this:
[qcopd-directory mode=”all” style=”style-1” column=”1” orderby=”date” order=”ASC” list_title_font_size=”” item_orderby=”timestamp” list_title_line_height=”” title_font_size=”” subtitle_font_size=”” title_line_height=”” subtitle_line_height=”” filter_area=”normal” topspacing=”“]
How many items does it take for it to start adding items to the other columns? I have used the 3 column shortcode and have a couple items, but only one column when the page could fit 3. https://www.nikkeo.net/go-directory/
All list items added to a single list will show in one column. For columns, you have to create multiple Lists and use the shortcode to display All lists or a Category of Lists. What you have right now is a single list display – so it is one column. Hope that makes sense.
so there’s no way to have one list be 3 columns? it will just be one huge column taking up the page?
Yes, you can use a single column for the single list only. You can use pagination, sidebar etc. to make this look better. But the best use would be to break the single List into multiples sub-lists based on topic. Thanks
looks like style 2 has multiple columns, is there any way to change it to look more like 3 column style 1?
Possible as custom job.
Which Themes/Styles support both “Pagination” & “List Items Per Page?”
All templates. We will reply to your email about the issue you are having. Thanks.
I am having trouble getting the frontend submission working, it just redirects to the same page. how do i fix this? does it need a page associated with it? Demo: http://noooba.stealyoutube.com/5033-2/ Any help would be much appreciated.
Hi, You need to create 4 different pages with shortcodes. The required shortcodes are in SLD Settings->Help. Please try that and let us know. Thanks
Hi, just purchased, is there a way we can hide the List Title ? I already have a page title, so would be nice if we can hide this, without CSS.
Sorry, no. Except for single list – List title is essential.And even with a single list it is helpful for most use-cases. May I suggest using a slightly different, more descriptive title for your page title and put some text between header and list to help your users and search engine.
Ok, What is the sense of Categories of Lists? I cannot assign a link to a category. We can categories to lists. So If we add categories we also need to add list as a category?
So what I’m saying, We cannot categorize links with a single list ?
Lists are the base pillars of SLD. Yes, you can assign Lists to Categories, not link items. Then you can choose to show Only one category of Lists on a particular page and another category on another page. You can also do kool stuff like showing all categories with all Lists in Tab format. Example: http://dev.quantumcloud.com/sld/all-category-lists/
Also it would be very nice to have a management section where links can be assigned to other list.
I have several links which belongs to several same categories, So I have to add this link 5 times?
The most common use case scenario of Simple Link Directory is to create and display multiple Lists of many Links on specific topics. As such, there is no option for a Link (list item) to belong to multiple Lists or Categories. That would make the process of creating Lists slower. For each link you would have to select a List and a Category from drop downs despite the chances of a single List item to belong to multiple Lists are usually not that high. When you have dozens or hundreds of Lists that would become a real issue to create or manage your Lists.
So, if you want a Link to belong to multiple lists or categories, you have to add the Link as List item for each of the different Lists. Each List can belong to one or more categories. With shortcode, you can output any Category on any page and all Lists that are assigned to that Category will show in that page.
It is [sld-tab mode=”categorytab” style=”simple” item_orderby=”undefined” column=”3” orderby=”date” order=”ASC” title_font_size=”” subtitle_font_size=”” title_line_height=”” subtitle_line_height=”14px” filter_area=”normal” topspacing=”“]
But do NOT copy paste from here. The quote sign will be messed up. All shortcode parameters can be generated from the Short Code Generator button in your page’s Visual editor. Look for a small SLD button. Also, check Settings->Help
Ok I send you an email, please help
Your email was replied Thanks
Hi, how can we translate some interface parts? I have a dutch site.
“Live Search Items”
“Hi , Welcome to Dashboard.”
Please use loco translate plugin which is free. Use its string translation feature.
Ok thanks, I managed to translate some parts. But my import one I cannot change with Loco Translate, it cannot find ADD LINK
It would also be nice feature to post/edit links from the front-end as an admin.
When I visit this page it’s empty. /manage/?action=entrylist
Would it be much work to have this change? See the admin links are also visible?
Is it possible to have a payment option with Bitcoin?
I have a site about bitcoin, so that would be a must-have for me.
Can this be done?
You can post links from the front end as admin – unlimited submission only for admin. But you can manage only from front end because front-end submissions need to be approved in most cases and so is saved into a different database until approved.
Payment option with Bitcoin is very interesting. But we just released the monetize version as 1st iteration. We wanted to work on better multi-language feature as next step along with more templates etc. We would integrate stripe as next payment gateway but it may take a while to integrate this feature in normal procedure. If you want to sponsor this feature, we can move it up the roadmap.
Hope you understand.
What about the SLD slug I want to change this, because it’s not nice! Also all your buyers will use this slug, so this is not very unique. It should be changed from a setting. How can we change this? If it only can be changed hardcoded in code, I don’t mind for now. But I really need to change this.
What about this Mask_url? I want to use it, because I some affiliate urls.
But in the docs you say “Please note that URL masking may hurt your SEO.”
How can it Hurt my SEO? Isn’t there a way without hurting my SEO
This is a special Link Cloak Plugin (Pretty Link) https://wordpress.org/plugins/pretty-link/ Maybe do it the way they do it? It seems to be very popular For affiliate managers.
Thanks for your feedback again.
SLD does not use slug or make use of custom post type as it is not required. SLD is meant to be used as one-page directory with shortcode inside a WordPress page.
Pretty link is a plugin made solely for manipulating links. The masking option in SLD is a fringe feature. But according to your feedback, I will submit the feature request to our dev team.
QUOTE “Ok thanks, I managed to translate some parts. But it cannot find ADD LINK” and also the pages for register, dashboard etc, I cannot find those strings too. I want my site fully dutch. Thanks
No problem. We will double check with loco translate and release a patch, if required, right after the weekends. No worries. We also have plans for full multi-language support in near future. We might need your help with some translations then
Sure, I’ll send you my translation files.
i dont like the sidebar on the right in your demo, what theme do you recommend?
Agreed. We don’t like it much either. We put it there mainly for quick navigation convenience for you – to check out the other templates quickly.
This is a Theme feature and any modern theme should have a Full screen template without any sidebar option. Like in our other example site in http://www.wordpresshunt.com/ or http://www.dna88.com/ultimate-list-of-free-web-design-resources/ we are using Divi theme without sidebar. You can almost pick any modern theme from Theme Forest and it would have an option to disable sidebar.
1. How to add sub catogory?
2. Item catogory on top of the page wanted in a single line rather than in cloud view. Can we do it?
1. In the context of SLD, Lists can be considered as subcategory.
2. You can enable Carousel mode for List filter buttons from Settings
I have few questions
1. How to create a custom currency. some country not in the List.
2.i need certain individual link to be marked in special color. How to do it?
We replied to your email. Thanks
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a quick patch. Thanks
We are using the embed code to embed the directory into a SharePoint page. We are using the orderby=”menu_order” order=”menu_order” and this works fine in WP and follows the order but it does not seem to work in the embed code.
Can you please help?
The embed mode currently does not support all the parameters. But I will check with the dev team and see if we can make the order parameter to work. Please send us a mail at email@example.com with your web page link where the directory is displayed. This will help us provide a quicker solution. Thanks
Thanks so much for sorting this for us and updating the code. We now just add the following to the iframe embed code and it now conforms to the list ordering – orderby=menu_order&order=ASC – It is very much appreciated. Thanks
We want to know followings
1.What is the maximum limited number of site that can be added,is there any limit.
2.We need site text in a little smaller show that it could accommodate more sites on first page,is it possible ? how?
3.The gaps between two consecutive web links also advisable to be reduced it will again helpful to accommodate more sites on first page.Any idea?
4.Site performance seems greatly reduced due to high number of fav link connected into, so is there any way to maximize the performance ?
1. It is only limited by your server max_input_vars directive. Set it to a high value like 10,000 or more
2. Email us your page link
3. Email us your page link
4. Unfortunately no. Favicon works fine in many cases.
Hi, this dem plugin can be use for recent post list link on wordpress?
Hi, Not exactly clear. Some examples would be great. But SLD has 3 widgets that you can use on your side bar. Look at the right side bar on http://dev.quantumcloud.com/sld/ – after the links.
Whats thw shortcode for heart and hot ? I have this shortcode [qcopd-directory mode=”all” style=”simple” column=”1” upvote=”on” orderby=”date” order=”ASC” list_title_font_size=”” item_orderby=”” list_title_line_height=”” title_font_size=”” subtitle_font_size=”” title_line_height=”” subtitle_line_height=”” filter_area=”normal” topspacing=”“]
There is no shortcode for that. It is in the global setting page where you can select the icon from. Scroll down a little bit on the settings page. Thanks
On your demo all the “List Items” are displayed as buttons under the search, Is there a possibility for it to display as drop down beside search box?
I am trying to create a similar kind of website: https://www.icoalert.com/
Hi, Under the search we have List filters. We do not have any drop down option but the Filters can be shown on the left instead of top. Example: http://www.wordpresshunt.com/
Is it required to use the user signup/login or is it possible to assign existing users the required user-role? We are using Ultimate Member and can assign users on signup a role, in this case the SLD role… any thoughts on this?
Assigner existing users to the SLD User role should work fine. If you face any problem, let us know. Thanks
