I have received a fairly large number of requests recently, asking for instructions on how to setup the “LinkyLoo” (or asides or small posts) category of this blog. They are a highly hacked series of implementations of Photomatt’s Asides.
Fortunately for everyone, Podz has come to the rescue (again) and has a detailed set of instructions on how to set up Asides on your WordPress install. These instructions should work for WordPress 1.2 through the recent 1.5. Here is Photomatt’s writeup on his Asides implementation.
There is also a plugin available from Rusty called Rustasides which does the same without having to modify any code. Rustaside is also compatible with WordPress 1.5.
Finally, to post links, I browse to a page and use the “WordPress Bookmarklet” to add posts to the “LinkyLoo” category.
