    "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 - I miss the Links with Link Categories seperate and manageable. Now my links can't be sorted by what's recent;y updated, etc in what is now called a blogroll. :(

    Agreed, "Blogroll" is too specific for a links section, not to mention buzzwordy and likely unintelligible to many WordPress users.

    It's almost embarassing - you work hard to explain to a client that even though WP is primarily a blogging platform it also makes a great lightweight CMS, and then the first thing they see is this big fat "Blogroll" section and you have to tell them to go there to manage their links. I don't see how this change serves anyone well. Please switch back to "Links," which is more general and serves everyone equally well.

    Blogroll also doesn't translate well into other languages.

    I agree. It happens to make organization harder (for me, at least) too.

    I agree.

    All of our links are to forums, websites and wikis. None of them points to a blog of any type.

    Also, we need to order the links in order of importance, add link images, use link categories (with expand/collapse) and so on.

    Our links have absolutely nothing to do with our post categories.

    Hence, upgrade to WP2.1 has been cancelled for now. Maybe later...

    Change it back or (better) make the heading customizable. "Links", "Blogroll", "See also".... Support creativity!

    Wow what a surprise. I upgraded too quickly; may have to go back to version 2.
    Not sure why you reduced the usability. There must be a good reason?
    Such a great product! Thanks for all your efforts!
