    I am new to CSS & WordPress. I am using DarkNight 2.0 theme, and the Blogroll (links) are not showing on the main index page. How do I get that to show up? Also, is it possible to change "Blogroll" to "Links"? Thank you in advance for any help.

    to change blogroll to link in your admin panel , go to link --> link categories and edit the name .

    For your first question see in your theme if u have the following function call :

    get_links_list();

    Thank you for the help changing the Blogroll name.

    On the function call get_links_list();
    it is not in the Main Index Template editor, but it is in the Sidebar editor.

    but it is in the Sidebar editor.

    Yup, that's where it's usually located in. =) Um, can you post here, a little bit of the sidebar.php file here please?

    I mean, just a *little* bit lol.. Like, that code for the get_links_list(); but, grab a little bit of the code above it, and below it too? I'm wondering if it's commented out.. =/

    I hope this is enough, but not too much (hehehe), & thank you.

      <?php wp_list_pages(); ?>
      <?php get_links_list(); ?>
      <li id="categories"><?php _e('Categories:'); ?>
      <?php wp_list_cats(); ?>

    Ok, are you sure you added links into the Links section in the Blog's control panel? I mean, assign the certain links that "section"?

    I have one link right now (still working on putting more on). It shows up when you go to another page (like one of the archive pages), but not on the main index page. Also, I changed the name "blogroll" to "links", but it still shows up as "blogroll". I'm wondering if the creator built these things into the theme.

    Thank you for your time.

    Ok, here's the deal.. One of the main problems was that the WP-Cache needed deleted. Another, that theme needs some lovin, or something.. Also, running WordPress version 2.0.2 doesn't help much either sigh..

    I told her in an email, that I would handle her upgrade of the blog, if that's possible, and also provided a link to another possible theme location, to find something similiar to what she has now.

    Well, atleast the links are on the index page now.. I dunno how long they'll be there.. but, they there hahaha.

    UPDATE: After removing the crap wp-cache plugin, every folder it made and this line from the wp-config.php file:
    define('WP_CACHE', true); //Added by WP-Cache Manager

    Ran upgrade, and all is well now. =)
