    Shows Ratings and Timestamp

    Displays all bookmarks in an ordered list with descriptions on a new line, does not use images for bookmarks, sorts by bookmark id, shows ratings and last-updated timestamp (Note that the last updated timestamp does not track local modifications. It tracks when whatever the link points to is updated via remote requests to pingomatic.)

    <ol>
    <?php wp_list_bookmarks('between=<br />&show_images=0&orderby=id&show_rating=1&show_updated=1'); ?>
