[resolved] problem with sidebar and entry-title blogroll (5 posts)

    i have been skinning or themeing the wordpress to suit my
    perfered colourings and have come accross a problem. if i write in my sidebar.php the following:

    <li id="Bookmarks"><?php _e('<div id="pinktitle">Links:</div>'); ?>
             <?php wp_list_bookmarks(); ?>

    then in the sidebar it will say:


    and taht would be followed by my links. i would like to either delete the word 'blogroll' or rename it to 'links:' the only way i have managed that is by editing the
    bookmark-template.php on line 349 and changing the original

    $output .= "$title_before$catname$title_after\n\t<ul>\n";

    to a new one

    $output .= "$title_before$title_after\n\t<ul>\n";

    this solution might work, but i don't like editing in the original wordpress files if i can avoid it, so my question would be, where would i have to edit to change the word blogroll into links: without doing it the way i have described above.

    any help on the matter would be great and much apreciated.

    thank you kindly

    What about going to the admin > Manage > Categories: Edit "Blogroll" and rename it?

    thanks moshu ... i did not notice that option before at all. i guess that solves my problem. *great* ... i have one
    further related question:

    the things i can edit there are:

    Category name:
    Category slug:

    what is a category slug ? a slug is like some kind of animal that sucks blood if i am not mistaken ?

    sorry my english is not the best as i do not live in a country where english is spoken as the main language.

    kind regards

    Well, English is not my mother tongue, either :)

    It also has a meaning: "a brief headline to indicate the subject of the material".

    In WP language it means the string that is created automatically from post and Page title and category names - and they are used in the so-called nice permalinks, when instead of example.com/?cat=4 you will have something like:

    thanks once again moshu. now i understand the meaning of that. the support speed and the way you go about it deserves a full 10 out of 10 points.
