Support » Fixing WordPress » Catagory is not showing up

  • 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.

    i am somewhat suprised. there must be some mistake. i cant believe that the theme maker wouldnt set it up to add more catagorys

    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.

    so i have to add the links manually? with html?

    i see this :
    <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” />

    </div>
