How to Edit Link Categories to Change Order? (7 posts)

    Hi there, I'd like to change the order of my links. I have a blogroll and links to my main web site. I would like the main web site links to appear on the top and the blogroll to appear below.

    Since the blogroll is link id 1, it is on top of the web site links (which is link id2).

    I went into the "edit link category" area, and saw nothing that would allow me to change the numbers.

    I'd appreciate whatever help you can provide!
    Thanks!

    This page might help. http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/get_links

    Or if you need more control http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_get_linksbyname

    You want to open your sidebar.php file and alter the necessary code.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply. Since I don't know PHP, the info at those links is Greek to me.

    I read that one could add space before the link category names. I tried to do that from the Admin panel and it didn't work.

    Any other ideas out there?

    Thanks!

    So what you're saying is that you're using PHP and you want to make a modification but you don't really know anything about PHP so you can't modify anything but you really want to be helped? :)

    So what you are saying is that I need to spend a year or so to learn PHP so I can edit my categories? =)

    Sorry those links didn't help you. The only other option you have if you would rather not try editing the source is to rename your blogroll to reflect what you'd like to have at the top of your sidebar and then transfer the links to it manually.

    I just ran across this:

    You do have to overwrite a couple of files with customized ones but other than that it worked well for me! Just follow the instructions.txt within the zip file.
