    Hi!
    I searched through several pages, but couldnt find this. Although I probably was searching for the wrong term.

    How do you change the wording "Blogroll" to something else. Im currently using HemingwayEx 0.95 beta as my template.

    I want this to change in the front end and not the backend.

    Thanks!

    Not sure where exactly you're lookint on on your blog but have you tried to work out which template file is displaying that portion of the blog?

    that is a picture of almost exactly what my thing looks like, blogroll is in the middle bottom of the screen. I was wondering how to change that wording to something like just "links"

    Edit your theme's functions.php line 156: change "Blogroll" to "Links".

    Thats the one I thought it was, and changed, I changed everything in fuctions.php from blogroll to links :(

    Thanks for the try though

    Arthursdomain,

    I'm using a Kubrick variant, so this may not help you, but in my case "Blogroll" was actually a category name, which I changed in my WordPress admin settings under Manage > Categories.

    @pjrich: I just checking this out on a test install and it seems to work. I would have spent much longer searching through code before thinking to change the category name ;)

    Same here - luckily, I found it before I wanted to change it, and remembered it later. Glad to hear it works -

    Cheers -
