Add Link Widget

This widget provides an easy way for professors to allow students to add their blogs to the class blogroll.

1. Go to Dashboard > Widgets and drag the “Add Link” widget to the appropriate sidebar.

2. Choose the heading you want to appear.  You can leave the default or edit it as shown below.
3. Choose whether to password protect this function.  We strongly suggest you use password protection in order to make sure spammers do not add links to your blog.  Just be sure to give the password to anyone you want to be able to add a link.
4. Select the proper category from the dropdown menu.  In this case, “Class Blogroll” is a previously created category.  See the instructions on creating link categories.
