Support » Fixing WordPress » Displaying more than 4 categories in my theme

  • I am using the Brandford Magazine theme and really learning a lot! I knew nothing about css or html when I started but am learning slowly to recognize what it will do.

    Can someone tell me how to modify my theme so that I can display more than four categories on the right hand side? and also in the middle column? I have five altogether that I need to display.

    My blog is http://www.hischopsticks.org/wordpress/

  • In sidebar.php the wp_list_categories is excluding category id 7.
    <?php wp_list_categories('orderby=order&hide_empty=1&title_li=&exclude=7');?>

    In index.php, it looks to be displaying category ids 3,4,5, and 6
    $display_categories = array(3,4,5,6);

    Make your changes accordingly.

    Thanks! I will read the links also. I am having a problem with determining which category is first, second, etc. Any quick guidelines?

    Not sure of your question. To determine the id of a category hover over the category name in Manage->Categories and look at the URL in the status bar at the bottom of the browser.
