Don't Confuse "Link List" And "List" Gadgets

One useful alternative to the "Archives" gadget, when you want to help your readers index your blog by Title, is a LinkList.

You can make a LinkList in 5 minutes - and you can add a new entry, when you publish a post, in 10 seconds - and index your blog by Post Title.

Just don't confuse the terms "linklist" and "list", when you add a Title index.

To some blog owners, who don't yet understand the difference, "linklist" might seem the same as "list".

This is a linklist (unnumbered).If you want to index your blog by post title, you will need a linklist.

This is a list (unnumbered).
  • apples
  • oranges
  • pears


You use "Add a Gadget" to add either gadget - just select the right gadget.


Look near the top of the "Add a Gadget" list.



And there is the "Link List" gadget.



Adding a "Link List" gadget, we get "Configure Link List".


In "Configure Link List", each list entry consists of:
  • New Site Name (link caption)
  • New Site URL (link address)

You should select "Sort Alphabetically", for "Sorting", to index by title.


Look closer to the bottom of the "Add a Gadget" list.



And there is the "List" gadget.

Two gadgets, two purposes. Both useful, just in different ways.
