I have a page that links to other pages on my Wordpress website. At the moment, I am displaying them in an unordered list. However, in my opinion, it looks a bit cluttered. Plus, I'm afraid that the links are a little too close to one another. Example:

enter image description here

Is there a better more user-friendly way to do this?

  • Is this a list of importance to you? Like for instance, is the first link #1 on your list of "how much I like this?" Or is it just a unordered list?

  • @Majo0od Completely un-ordered. A glorified menu of sorts! Feb 10 '15 at 20:10

Use each link as an item separator

Separate the links from the descriptions and place them in a vertical list. With proper spacing it should be clear where each item begins and ends without the need for bullet point dots.



I like DaveAlger's suggestion.

Here are two other layout options that might work for you. I think it depends on what kind of content you have.

Representative icons above each link, then the link title and description. These would just stack vertically for as many links as you have.

left-column hyperlink title with a description on the right. These would stack vertically one by one for as many links as you have.


The most user friendly list at the bottom of a blog post, at least for me, is to have no list at all, but a single link titled 'Read this next'. This might need human curation rather than just tag matching, but it means a lot to me. I can only click one article's title at a time, and someone has already done the hard work and chosen that for me? I am sold.
