[resolved] Blogroll not showing in upgrade from 2.3.2 to 2.7.1 (3 posts)

    I am in the process of upgrading WP from 2.3 to 2.7. To manage that, I've set up a site locally to test the upgrade before upgrading on my live site.

    The wp-content folders are identical for both sites, but on my local version (running 2.7), my blogroll links (and even the default links from WP in the blogroll) are not showing up.

    In the 2.3 site, my blogroll links were assigned to a category, and the categories appeared via <?php wp_list_cats(); ?> in the sidebar.php

    In the 2.7 site, the blogroll links are also assigned to a category, and even though my other categories are appearing, my blogroll is not.

    sidebar.php is the same for both sites...

    It's hard to see how it used to work as described without seeing the template source.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_bookmarks describes the way most people show their blogroll.

    This is perfect.

    I just was confused by that link (when I read it when searching) b/c there is no definition of the differences of bookmarks + blogroll + links, and it also references 2.1 ...

    But many thanks. It's fixed.
