I would create a custom widget using get_bookmarks, so you could format it
that way.

Bad idea to hack core files

Subject: [wp-hackers] wrapping link name between span tags in blogroll

using the standard blogroll widget I needed the link name to be wrapped in
<span> tags while using link images, so I tried looking for a valid filter
to do so but was unable to find it.
here's the standard output of the wp_list_bookmarks function used in the
blogroll widget:

<li><a href=".."><img ... /> linkname</a></li>

and here's what I needed to achieve:

<li><a href=".."><img ... /><span class="link_name">linkname</span></a></li>

Since I couldn't find a clean way of achieving this I decided to have a look
at wp-includes/bookmark-template.php and I made a few modifications.

here's the patch I've made, it's on pastebin so that you could have a look
at it and tell me if it's worth submitting it to trac.


Thanks a lot in advance
