i have read 20 topics about the merger of links and categories, and i still have no idea why this happened. but i'd really like to know how to remove link categories from my category list. even on the topics marked [resolved] there doesn't seem to be a way to do this. right now, these extra links take up space, and result in 404 errors. i've tried filtering out the category id number, could not get that to work. any ideas?
