Display a link-list or link-slider in a post or page by using a shortcode.

== Description ==

The purpose of this plugin is to to show the wordpress integrated links in a list or a slider by using a shortcode.
It is also possible to include the images. Use the shortcode [linkview] to add the Links/Blogroll in your site.
A detailed description of all available shortcode-attributes to modify the output can be found on the admin page under Links -> Link View.
There is also a widget available where all attributes of the linkview shortcode can be set.

If you want to follow the development status have a look at the [git-repository on github]( "wp-linkview git-repository").

== Installation ==

The easiest version of installing is to go to the admin page. There you can install new plugins in the menu Plugins -> Add new. Search for "Link View" and press "Install now".

If you want to install the plugin manually download the zip-file and extract the files into your wp-content/plugins folder.

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= Is it possible to use the shortcode in a widget? =
Yes, a widget especially for the use of the [linkview] shortcode is included in this plugin. Insert the widget LinkView in your sidebar and set all attributes you want to change in the appropriate field.

= Is it possible to add multiple slider on one site? =
Yes, since version 0.3.0 you can use as much sliders as you want on one site.

= Can I call the shortcode directly via php e.g. for my own template, theme or plugin? =
Yes, you can create an instance of the "sc_linkview" class which located in "php/sc_linkview.php" in the plugin folder and call the function show_html($atts).With $atts you can specify all the shortcode attributes you require. Another possibility would be to call the wordpress function "do_shortcode()".
