Change “Categories” and “Archives” in sidebar to something else

  • My apologies if this question is in the wrong place. I was wondering if it was possible to change the words on the right hand side bar? I would like to change the word “Categories’ and the word ‘Archieves’.

    Many thanks! Fanstastic community!

    cheers

    It would help to know what version of WordPress you are using. In version 1.5, in the default template, you’d go to the wp-content/themes/default folder and edit the sidebar.php file.

    Look for something like this:
    <li><h2>Categories</h2>
    <ul><?php list_cats(0, '', 'name', 'asc', '', 1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0,'','','','','') ?></ul>
    </li>

    Change the Categories text to whatever you like. Look for similar coding for the other headings as well.

    Mr. Moose!

    Many thanks! That worked like a charm!!!

    cheers
