How to create a 'shortcuts' menu like the one in this forum?

Post by dotdotdot on September 26th 2011, 8:07 pm

Many questions from me! I've just noticed that this forum of the forums has a really useful sidebar with 'shortcuts' to support, other services and miscellaneous.

I'm assuming this is a widget but how can I make the same for my forum?

Many thanks in advance!

Almost solved! I've got it to work but I'm struggling with the spacing. If I add <br> at the beginning of every line then I get an empty line between each link, but if I don't put a <br> then all the links run on one long line without any line breaks at all.

Any idea how to sort that?

Yes, so what do you want to do with it? You already told the solution. Don't you want the spacing?

I want the spacing to look the same on my widget as it does on this forum. As I said I can only get double spacing (one blank line between each item) or no spacing at all (each item on the same line as the previous item).

How do I do that?
