Getting help with word press (6 posts)

    I have been trying for over a week to get a solution to removing blogroll from the category list. Changing its name is not a solution because no matter what I name it nothing can be put into it. It will not delete because it, like uncatorgized, is a default.

    Does anyone know of someplace on the net that might be able to tell me how to do this?

    Thanks

    For starters: give a link, name the theme you are using.
    Then you will get "help with WordPress".

    This is the link

    http://www.woodlandstar.net/WSblog/

    The theme is the-glass-people-20

    I made the blogroll category a child to uncategorized. At least it gets it out of the way. But I would really like to get it off the side bar.

    Your theme is using a deprecated template tag to display the categories:

    <h2><em>Categories</em></h2>
    	<ul class="categories">
    	<?php wp_list_cats('sort_column=name&hide_empty=0'); ?>
    	</ul>

    See details: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_cats
    and follow the instructions to replace it!

    Where do I find?

    <h2>Categories</h2>
    <ul class="categories">
    <?php wp_list_cats('sort_column=name&hide_empty=0'); ?>

    Can I just delete that?

    Since it is your sidebar - you will find it in the sidebar.php template file of your theme.

    Deleting it will make to disappear ALL your categories. As I said above: read the manual and follow the instructions to replace it with an updated tag.
