Matters of blogular housekeeping.

Regular readers may have noticed that the easyvegan blogroll is much, much shorter than it used to be. Don’t fret, I haven’t deleted anything!

After months of begging, the Mr. finally created for me a customized WP plug-in that selects and displays ten random links in each blogroll category; the display is updated every time you refresh your browser (and/or kill the cache). If you’d like to view all the links in any one category, simply click on that category’s heading – it’s a link now, yo! – and it’ll take you to a dedicated page that displays all the links in that category, in alphabetical order. (None of these are permalinks – not yet, anyhow – as Shane is also working on generating more intuitive URLs for each page.)

With a fixed blogroll display, I no longer have to worry about a bloated, out-of-control sidebar, and can add links till the dogs come home. If you’d like me to add a specific blog, website, organization, etc., drop me a line at easyvegan [at] gmail.com – or in the comments – and I’d be happy to oblige. Similarly, if your link is present in the blogroll, but you think I’ve mis-categorized it, let me know. Reports of broken links are also appreciated, but the Mr.’s next project is to write a script to auto-check for those.
