Links not showing in blogtxt v1-2 (new user, please be patient!) (4 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I am hosting a WP blog on my domain, I downloaded blogtxt 1-2 theme because I thought it looked nice, however it seemingly has no links section...and the word press links I put in don't appear...

    how do I remedy this? is there a way to harness the links section to the theme?

    also when downloading my page from my ftp to edit it in notepad, what part of the page do I download?

    apologies if these are stupid questions...I am an ex blogger user!

    Probably that theme is missing the template tag that displays the links.
    One of these should do the job:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags#Links_Manager_tags

    You cannot "download" your WordPress content through FTP because nothing is stored in files - all the content is in the database, and the Db is not accessible via ftp.

    What you want to edit is the template files of the theme, located in the wp-content/themes/yourtheme/ directory

    Thanks for the tips on this template...I am having some technical difficulties with getting the links to work following the link tag documentation. I'm thinking I need to use the get_linksbyname() tag, because i am wanting to show my links in an alphabetical order in the sidebar. I also think I have a handle on writing the correct parameters, but I am not sure exactly where or how to write it in the links page or even if that is where it is supposed to go. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

  5. <h2>Blogroll</h2>

      <?php wp_get_linksbyname('BlogRoll','orderby=name'); ?>
  6. ...thanks! :D
