  • I was wondering how to change the name”Pages” that is on the right colum when you creat a page. I want it to say something else besides “Pages”

  • From the admin panel, go to Links | Link Categories, and then click on the Edit button (to the far right) of the Pages link category.

    i know how to change names of catigories but i want to change the name “Pages” which is the title when you create a page and not a categorie. if you got to admin, write, write page, and then write a page, that page will be under the title “pages” in the right colum which is what i want to change.

    Somewhere in your sidebar (generally) you should find a line similar to this: <?php wp_list_pages('title_li=<h2>' . __('Pages') . '</h2>' ); ?>

    In that line, change ‘Pages’ to whatever title you prefer.

    [[And of course, this was “extempore” because I hadn’t ever tried it. So I tried it. Works fine. See at – sidebar entry as “Extranea”….]]

    Cool Thanks for the info!

    You’re welcome! Happy holidays….

    Tried it and works.
    Thanks again.

    Forgive my ignorance as I’m brand new to this. I can’t edit the template for the side bar. What do I need to do to enable editing on that? I too am looking to change the word “Pages” in the side bar to read “Press Kit” and I am trying to learn how. Please let me know. Thank you.

    I can’t edit the template for the side bar.


    You need to edit sidebar.php on your desktop or wherever your files are and then upload it to your server, replacing the old one.

    I can’t upload files either. I know its something that is set up incorrectly for doing such, but as I wasn’t the original creator of this web site and I am just now taking over, I have no idea how to change it so that I can upload it. I did see the side bar code and found where to change the word, “Pages” to “Press Kit,” I just can’t upload my new file with the change.

    You don’t upload those files through WordPress. Unless the host provides the capability, you use an FTP client. In a pinch, you can use Window’s Explorer, but either way, you need the password and possibly the directory information from the host (this password is separate from any WordPress password).
