Change "Blogroll" back to "Links"

    I'm posting this but not voting for now; open to hearing the reasoning. But at first glance calling the Link management section "Blogroll" seems counterintuitive and jargonistic to me.

    I agree, blogroll is a narrow definition, they are in fact web links, some of which are blogs.

    I'd change it to "Links" and then people can tag/categorise blogs as 'blogroll'.

    The merging of link categories with post categories has actually removed functionality from a very good link management system.

    I'd gladly welcome a return of a dedicated links management section that again includes the ability to create specific link categories, and allow for limitation of links per category and the ordering of the links within each category.

    I agree. Now that WP is increasingly used (and billed) as a small CMS, it makes sense to make the terminology cater more than the blogosphere.

    I agree. I use WP's link management features to control internal site navigation, a page of external resources and organizations, as well as the blogroll. The term "Links" encompasses all these uses, "Blogroll" does not.

  8. Agreed. I removed the Blogroll Widget and added a "Links" text widget just to avoid confusion.
