Until now Simple Link Directory was most suitable as a single page directory. The new multipage mode can be enabled by adding a single line of shortcode on any of your pages. This will display all your Categories, Lists and Links hierarchically. The multi-page mode works with only one template right now. If we get enough requests from you – we will consider adding more templates in the future.
