    noob here: I am running pool theme. I added a catagory called links. This catagory is not showing up. All the actual links that i add whether they show up under blogroll or links in the admin page, when i got to the actual site all the links are under the blogroll like no "links" catagory ever existed. When I switch back to the default theme it shows up perfectly as planned. Am I just not checking something? Pool is one of the main wp themes. It must be me for sure.

    I've seen that Theme in other places and it looks the same as yours. so guess your Theme's sidebar would need to be changed to do what you want.

    Nope, that's how it's set up. In the sidebar.php:

    <div id="blogroll">
    <h3>Blogroll</h3>
    <ul>
    <?php get_links(-1, '<li>', '</li>', ' - '); ?>
    </ul>
    </div>

    You will probably want to change the tag to get_links_list or something else.

    <body id="sidebar">
    <h1 id="wphead">WordPress</h1>
    <form name="post" action="post.php" method="POST">
    <div><input type="hidden" name="action" value="post" />
    <input type="hidden" name="user_ID" value="<?php echo $user_ID ?>" />
    <input type="hidden" name="mode" value="sidebar" />
    Title:
    <input type="text" name="post_title" size="20" tabindex="1" style="width: 100%;" />

    Categories:
    <span class="sidebar-categories">
    <?php dropdown_categories(); ?>
    </span>

    Post:
    <textarea rows="8" cols="12" style="width: 100%" name="content" tabindex="2"></textarea>

    <input name="saveasdraft" type="submit" id="saveasdraft" tabindex="9" value="Save as Draft" />
    <input name="publish" type="submit" id="publish" tabindex="6" style="font-weight: bold;" value="Publish" />
