If I have understood correctly the "Max number of bookmarks" should restrict the blogs listed to that number? I have entered 8, but all blogs links are showing.
All blog links are in the same category "blogroll".
Also I ticked the java sorting option but I still have a very, very old blog right up the top.
What I'd like is the 8 most recent displayed in order of update. Here's my blog: http://www.wapshere.com/missmiis
