  • Open sidebar.php in your theme and comment it out.

    sorry i was unclear, I’m talking about in admin 😀

    Do what was advised above to remove the blogroll (links) from the front of your blog, then go to wp-admin/manage.php and comment out the Links menu…like below.

    //$menu[20] = array(__(‘Links’), ‘manage_links’, ‘link-manager.php’);

    Open wp-admin/menu.php

    For v 2.1 comment out the line:
    $menu[20] = array(__(‘Blogroll’), ‘manage_links’, ‘link-manager.php’);
    and the lines:
    $submenu[‘link-manager.php’][5] = array(__(‘Manage Blogroll’), ‘manage_links’, ‘link-manager.php’);
    $submenu[‘link-manager.php’][10] = array(__(‘Add Link’), ‘manage_links’, ‘link-add.php’);
    $submenu[‘link-manager.php’][20] = array(__(‘Import Links’), ‘manage_links’, ‘link-import.php’);

    For V 2.0.X comment out the line:
    $menu[20] = array(__(‘Links’), ‘manage_links’, ‘link-manager.php’);

    And the lines:
    $submenu[‘link-manager.php’][5] = array(__(‘Manage Links’), ‘manage_links’, ‘link-manager.php’);
    $submenu[‘link-manager.php’][10] = array(__(‘Add Link’), ‘manage_links’, ‘link-add.php’);
    $submenu[‘link-manager.php’][15] = array(__(‘Link Categories’), ‘manage_links’, ‘link-categories.php’);
    $submenu[‘link-manager.php’][20] = array(__(‘Import Links’), ‘manage_links’, ‘link-import.php’);

    Is it possible to disable blogroll admin without hacking the source, for example via a plugin?

    Is it possible to disable blogroll admin without hacking the source, for example via a plugin?

    I would also be interested in removing this option. Is there such a plugin, or do I have to hack?

    I would be interested in limiting manage_links only to admin instead of admin and editor.

    Anybody can help ?

    I would also like to hide the ‘Blogroll’ category in WordPress 2.2.1 on the admin side, without hacking the core.

    The Blogroll won’t be used on my install and will only confuse people so I’d love to hide it! Ta.

    i’ve used this plugin:

    before to customize the admin menu. not sure if its compatible with the very latest version of wordpress, let me know if it works for you.
