Adding a blogroll to your WordPress site with no plugins required

Do you know of other blogs that are related to yours? Or other blogs that you read and think other people would enjoy reading? Instead of posting them on social media you can put them on your WordPress site.

Most of the time these blogroll’s are on a separate page so they don’t take up too much on a sidebar or another area.

How do you do this?

First you need to create the page, WordPress.org has a guide on how to do this if you don’t know how to do so.

Once you have that page and you are editing it, you will want to add the Custom HTML block (if you are using Gutenberg) to the page. Where it says Write HTML you want to copy the following:

<a href="https://test.com">My Favourite Blog</a>

That tells WordPress you want it to have My Favourite Blog be a link to test.com. If you want it to link to a different website then change test.com (make sure to keep the quotes) to that other site. And change My Favourite Blog to the name you want it to show.

If you want to add multiple blogs then add <br> <br> at the end of each </a>. Which tells WordPress you want two lines between that link and another one. Hit save, then your page is live for everyone to read.

There you go. You have created a blogroll on WordPress without any plugins.
