WordPress Reader Lists

In case you didn’t already know, it’s possible for WordPress site users to create a Reader List. This is a convenient means with which to see new content from a friend or site(s) of interest, without having to search – simply click their list link in the sidebar to see what’s new!

Step By Step Directions

  1. click on “Lists” (in sidebar).
  2. click on “Create a new list”.
  3. enter a name (i.e., Phil Perkins).
  4. select visibility option (private).
  5. click Save.
  6. at the top, click “Site”.
  7. paste the URL (i.e., https://perkinsdesigns.com).
  8. click the “Add” option, underneath.

You now have a Reader list link. Repeat as desired to add more.

    1. Cool breeze, Ingrid. I’ve been using this option recently and enjoy the convenience. Have a pleasant day, my friend 😊🌹

      1. I need to do something different. I awaken every morning to nearly 300 notifications that I never get caught up on fully. I enjoy reading the variety of things offered but its a bit much. I struggle to find my usual reads among that, this will help.

          1. It looks as if I need to figure out all these emoji things as well. It seems there are quite a few using them along the way and me with no clue ..

          2. My pleasure, Rebecca. I’ve also updated this post with helpful steps. Have a great day, my friend 🙂

  1. Bedankt voor de tip!
    Voor mij is het nog niet helemaal duidelijk maar ik zal dit eens uitzoeken te vertalen !
    Dit lijkt me een handige tip!
    Thanks for sharing dear friend!

    1. Ja, het is erg handig om lijstjes te hebben met favoriete mensen of onderwerpen. Het is een snelle manier om inhoud te vinden en ik hoop dat u ervan geniet. Beste wensen, mijn beste vriendin Inge 🤗🌹

    2. Hallo, Inge. Ik heb stapsgewijze instructies aan de post toegevoegd, wat de vertaling gemakkelijker zou moeten maken. Hoop dat het helpt. Fijne dag, mijn liefste.
