    1st - how do I add a blogroll/links to my sidebar, I can't figure it out and it's unusual not to just show up in a template.

    2nd - I want to add a dropdown for the archives and they look like this on the sidebar:

    <h3>Archives</h3>

      <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly'); ?>

    Thanks for the link.

    I see an entire blogroll on your sidebar. A long list of links.

    Really?? Ok there is something wrong with me then because I don't see it. I'm embarassed now...I really don't see it. Are you using IE or firefox?

    Ok I looked in IE and it shows a totally different template so now something is obviously screwed up. My template is green and is the chaotic one. Ugh.

    Ok, somehow that default one ended up as the current theme, I don't know how. it's on the right one now. It should be a green version of the Chaotic theme.

    I'm using Firefox btw.

    It looks like chaotic soul theme doesn't use dynamic links in the sidebar. You can check by looking at your sidebar.php in you theme directory. I'm surprised this theme doesn't have widget support. Ah well, looks like you need a <?php get_links_list(); ?> in there...

    In the theme folder there is a links.php but other than that I have no idea what to do. I assume it needs to be added somewhere or something but I'm not sure how to.

    i also don't have a blogroll and seems there is no possibility to adding it, the theme is hemingway, so i'm really interested in this subject!!!

    I'm confused. Yosemite's last response here included the tag that you would add to your theme to show the blogroll.
