Every Sunday, I put up a post called Share Your Giveaway Sundays! This gives my readers a chance to enter the links for their giveaways. It worked beautifully in Blogger. However, once I moved to WordPress, I could not get anything to show up but the typed out HTML code.

The trick to getting Mister Linky to work in WordPress is to:

– Select WordPress (Installed) – if you have it installed it
– Select Original Auto Linkies (or what ever other format you like)
– Be sure to paste the code in WordPress while you are in HTML mode
– Click on Publish and you should be able to see your Mister Linky in the post you wrote!

Wah-lah! You have a working Mister Linky

    I can’t get this to work at my blog. I tried a few different linky platforms and still having problems. I’m with WordPress too. When I inserted the code at the bottom of the post, that’s how it showed up on the post, not as a linky option/list. Would love to figure this out.
