Adding accessibility icons to links on your website can greatly enhance user experience, especially for visually impaired users. This step-by-step tutorial will guide you through the process of setting up accessibility icons in Link Whisper, a popular tool for managing links in WordPress websites.

  • Navigate to the Link Whisper settings in your WordPress dashboard. You can find this option in the menu.


Step 2: Go to Advanced Settings

  • In the Link Whisper settings, locate and click on the ‘Advanced Settings’ option.


  • Scroll down until you find the option ‘Add icon to external links’.
  • By default, this setting will be off. You can turn it on and choose your preferences.
  • Select whether to show the icon only when the link opens in a new tab or for all external links.
  • Customize the icon by selecting your preferred design, size, and color to match your website’s theme.
  • Optionally, you can exclude certain buttons or HTML tags (like H tags) from this setting.
  • Similarly, set up icons for internal links. Decide whether to show icons never, only when the link opens in a new tab, or always.
  • Just like with external links, you can customize the design, size, and color of the icons for internal links.

Step 5: Save Your Settings

  • After configuring the settings for both external and internal links, make sure to save your changes.

Step 6: Check Your Blog Posts

  • Once the settings are saved, the icons should now be visible in your blog posts. Browse your website to ensure everything is displayed correctly.
