How to Remove Blogroll from the categories.

  • Hi

    I have installed a webmaster blog and all the categories are in place but blogroll is also showing under “Categories”.

    How can I remove it from there !?

    Thank You.

  • Are you referring to where it says Blog Roll in the sidebar?
    If so you can remove it from being there by modifying your Sidebar.php file

    Or if it is actually a category then you should be able to remove it as a category in your Manage Tabs.

    Hope that helps.

    I have the same problem and there is no straight answer I can find in support. I am not a programmer so if you can answer this please use simple terms.

    Exactly how do you modify the sidebar? My side bar is as follows:

    <hr class=”low” />

    <!– subcontent …………………………… –>
    <div id=”subcontent”>

    <h2>Categories</h2>
    <ul class=”categories”>
    <?php wp_list_cats(‘sort_column=name&hide_empty=0’); ?>

    <h2>Links</h2>
    <ul class=”links”>
    <?php get_links(‘-1’, ‘

  • ‘, ‘
  • ‘, ”, 0, ‘name’, 0, 0, -1, 0); ?>

    <h2>Recent Posts</h2>
    <ul class=”posts”>
    <?php BX_get_recent_posts($p,10); ?>

    <?php if (is_page(“archives”) || is_archive() || is_search() || is_single() ) { ?>

    <h2>Calendar</h2>
    <?php get_calendar() ?>
    <?php if (!is_page(“archives”)) { ?>

    <h2>Posts by Month</h2>
    <ul class=”months”>
    <?php get_archives(‘monthly’,”,”,’

  • ‘,’
  • ‘,”); ?>

    <?php } ?>

    <h2>Posts by Category</h2>
    <ul class=”categories”>
    <?php wp_list_cats(‘sort_column=name&hide_empty=0’); ?>

    <?php } ?>

    <h2>Meta</h2>
    <ul class=”feeds”>

  • “>Entries (RSS)
  • “>Comments (RSS)
  • </div> <!– /subcontent –>

    Thank you for any help you can give me.

I am a total amateur at all blogging, but have successfully created my first blog and a couple of entries. I want to remove all of the “items” that display down the right side of my blog (pages, archive, categories, blogroll and Meta). From a previous answer in this thread I suspect I need to edit the file ‘sidebar.php’. But where is that file located? (I’m not at my PC with POST2BLOG right now) Is it on my client or on the server? What folder?
thanks, Terry

If you have a live blog – everything is on your host server.
