Many people have searched the internet for the answer to one question: “How do I change the order of the appearance of my links on my wordpress.com blog?” There are not many easy answers. While you can order them by name, id, rating etc. while editing them in the dashboard, they always appear in alphabetical order on the blog. Here is an html workaround for the problem: First, do not use the links widget in WordPress, instead select a text widget. Then title the text block (for example, “links”). Then copy this code into your text box:

<ul class=’snap_preview xoxo blogroll’>
<li><a href=”http://COPY YOUR LINK HERE”>LINK TITLE</a></li>
<li><a href=”http://COPY YOUR LINK HERE”>LINK TITLE</a></li>
<li><a href=”http://COPY YOUR LINK HERE”>LINK TITLE</a></li>
<li><a href=”http://COPY YOUR LINK HERE”>LINK TITLE</a></li>
<li><a href=”http://COPY YOUR LINK HERE”>LINK TITLE</a></li>
</ul>

Then paste your links where it says COPY YOUR LINK HERE. Remember to leave the quotation marks. You can title the link in the area where it says LINK TITLE. For example, <li><a href=”https://erinashleymiller.com/writing/”>Erin Miller’s Writing</a></li>. Don’t forget to open and close the text with the appropriate tags (<ul class=’snap_preview xoxo blogroll’>, </ul>). You can now change the order of the links by just cutting and pasting the lines of text that contain the links in the order you want them to appear. Good Luck!
