Edit Blogroll Categories Tab Missing in 2.1?

  • I just installed WP 2.1 and am now having problems with my sidebar links. There used to be a tab somewhere that allowed you to edit link category options, such as whether to show images, links, etc. I have a bunch of links with images that I want turned off, and now they are stuck on, with no obvious option to turn them off.

    Does anyone know where this feature has moved to?

    And on a related note, does anyone know how you order your link categories in the blogroll? It seems that you should be able to order them however you like, but I’ve never sorted out how to do it.

  • I think they moved these ordering options into the template functions themselves. The new wp_list_bookmarks is pretty flexible and lets you set different options for ordering.

    All the parameters can be found here, http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_bookmarks.

    If you are interested in being able to specify an explicit order for your blogroll links and categories I have a plugin that let’s you do this quite easily, My Link Order

    Thanks for the reply. I’m using 3 column K2. Does your plugin work for other themes?


    As long as the theme uses the standard WP functions then yes. For versions previous to WP 2.1 it was necessary to modify a few core files but with the new 2.1 function that is no longer necessary.

    I asked because I installed it and it didn’t seem to do anything. IIf I do not find a wp_list_bookmarks() tag in sidebar.php, does that mean it won’t work? Can I just add it?


    I tried replacing get_links_list() with your wp_list_bookmarks() tag but it did not seem to make the plugin functional in the sidebar for 3CK2.

    Hmmm . . .


    One more question. In your installation instructions, is there some reason why the wp_list_bookmarks() modification comes after ordering the bookmarks? Does the order somehow dictate the modification you need to do?
