Your favorite links are easily displayed on a page via the [grid] shortcode, which means they can be in columns, as a slider, in a widget, etc… you decide. You can even separate by category. Also supports FacetWP (as all [grid] shortcodes do).

To display a grid of favorites in specific categories (123 and 456 are your category IDs):

[grid content="favorite" taxonomy="favorite_cat" terms="123, 456"]
