  • Hello there,

    Is this a new install? Did you set it up yourself?

    What links are shown (if any) when you go to Links->Link Categories in the admin interface?

    Have you tried adding the Blogroll category back in?

    Hi Soothsayer, Yes, it is a new install. The link categories are visible in my dashboard under “link categories” but when I go to “edit” links, it says no links are available. Addiitonally they are not visible on the website. I did go into links and edit them per instructions from someone else. I did not mean to delete out Blogroll, just the stuff under it. I am so new to this I don’t know how to undelete it. And the instructions I had were on a prerecorded tutorial which did not give instructions on how to undelete links or categories in your sidebar if you want them back.

    Can you tell me how to add the Blogroll category back in?

    Ah. So if I understand this correctly now, the Blogroll category is still there, but you were instructed to delete all of the links that were associated with it. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    The links that are created under the blogroll category by default are just links to various wordpress sites (documentation, support forums, themes, etc) and really aren’t terribly important for your site. The links themselves are useful, but you were probably instructed to delete them because you’re going to want to replace them with links of your own, to other blogs or sites that you enjoy.

    If you go to Links->Add New in the admin interface, you should be able to create a new link by doing the following:
    1. Type in a friendly name in the “name” box. e.g. “Google”
    2. Add the url in the “web address” box. e.g. “”
    3. Under the categories header, check the Blogroll checkbox.
    4. Click the blue “Add Link” button on the right side of the screen.

    hat did work. I though that is what I had done but I guess I left out a step or did something else.

    MANY thanks!

    🙂 Donna

    You’re welcome! Glad to help! 🙂
