WordPress List Widget?


I’m new to WP and don’t write PHP. I want a widget that displays a list w/a vertical scroll bar so that I can add linked text easily. The content will be long, but I want to display it at a limited height of maybe 300px. The idea is to have a growing list of EXTERNAL links that I can easily add to from the admin.

All I have seen are widgets that take internal pages and make them lists. I know I can probably throw a text list in a sidebar somehow, but there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to manage that and style it.

Is there a widget for this or does it need custom coding?

Thanks guys!

Maybe these will help?

Thanks Mittineague. The issue I had with blogroll is restricting height and forcing a nice scroll bar. Know any way of doing that?

Assuming the blogroll widget has an Id like “blogroll” or similar, it should be easy enough to add something to your CSS file. eg. (not tested and height would need tweaking - personally I like % better than px but that’s up to you)

#blogroll {
  max-height: 300px;
  overflow: scroll;
