Blogroll section not visible - Orange v3 Theme (17 posts)

    I've read in these forums that if you can view the Blogroll section in the default theme, then the problem is with the theme you are currently using...in this case, Orange v3. But the support guys for this theme are not helping, so I'm wondering if anyone else if using this theme and having the same problem?

    It's like the Blogroll section is being suppressed?

    I posted this code in the sidebar section:

    <li id="blogroll"><?php _e('Blogroll:'); ?>

      <?php get_links(); ?>

    The Blogroll section is now visible, BUT it adds a triple space between each link entry. Does anyone know what might be causing the spacing issue?

    If you're using 2.0.x, then that should work with a closing </li>.
    If you're using 2.1.x, you'll want to use
    <?php wp_list_bookmarks(); ?>
    instead of
    <?php get_links(); ?>

    Mmmm...interesting. I added <?php wp_list_bookmarks(); ?> with a closing and now I have an extra "Blogroll" title above my links?

    It looks like this:

    Blogroll:

    Blogroll
    Link
    Link 2

    It should looks like this:

    Blogroll:

    Link
    Link 2

    Do you have a link to your site so someone can view the source?

    It not only added an the extra "Blogroll" title, but it also indented the links farther to the right as you can see.

    OK, remove this entirely:
    <li id="blogroll"><?php _e('Blogroll:'); ?>
    leaving only:
    <?php wp_list_bookmarks(); ?>

    Your stylesheet should take care of the <li> - if not change it to:
    <li><?php wp_list_bookmarks(); ?></li>

    It added the section, but it's not formatted like the rest of my sidebar.

    Hmmm....for some reason it's adding an <h2> tag around "Blogroll".

    OK last shot :>)

    <li id="blogroll"><?php wp_list_bookmarks(); ?></li>

    Sorry, don't have any suggestions, but I have been working with Orange v3 for the past week with no Blogroll trouble at all. Perhaps one of your sidebar widgets or plugins is causing your trouble?

    Also, I've found that if you post your issue on the headsetoptions page for your specific theme, they are very fast to respond with a suggestion.

    I only use one plug-in and the blogroll section was not working before I installed the plug-in. The people over at Headset said they haven't added the WP tag that calls for the blogroll on this theme, that's why it's not there.

    artsfish...So you have a blogroll section in Orange3 on the initial install?

    Very odd. Yes, I have the Blogroll in the sidebar of Orange v3 on the site I've just started.

    I exchanged the graphic images with some from my own paintings, but none of the code was altered.

    Now I'm really confused?
