First WordPress Widget!

I’ve just made my first WordPress widget, and I’m very proud..!

Actually, it’s not all that impressive, and probably duplicates functionality already available in other plugins, but it fulfils our needs, and hopefully will be useful to someone else out there, too.

It’s essentially an enhanced version of the standard WP Links widget. I extracted the code from my WordPress installation, and added a number of useful extra options, exposing some more of the controls of the wp_list_bookmarks() function.

I’ll tidy up the code a little, and release it into the wild (or at least the WP Widgets repository) soon.
