    My site url is http://www.pawupclose.net

    Just now learning this php stuff, most familiar with html. On my side bar, I see duplicate "tag" categories, along with duplicate "blogroll."

    hmmmm. don't know why. I'd like to be able rearrange the side bar content but am clueless of how to do such a thing.

    All your input is greatly appreciated!

    You're Awesome

    Assuming you are not talking about Widgets that can be moved up or down with a drag and drop process...

    As an example the WordPress Default theme has a sidebar controlled by the wp-content/themes/default/sidebar.php. So if you don't want categories displayed you would delete the code that displays categories (<?php wp_list_categories('show_count=1&amp;title_li=<h2>Categories</h2>'); ?>).

    This is what I have for the sidebar php.

    <div id="sidebar">

      <?php /* Widgetized sidebar, if you have the plugin installed. */
      if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar() ) : ?>

      <!-- Author information is disabled per default. Uncomment and fill in your details if you want to use it.

    • <h2>Author</h2>
      <p>A little something about you, the author. Nothing lengthy, just an overview.</p>
    • -->

      <li class="widget_categories">

      <?php wp_list_cats('sort_column=name&optioncount=1'); ?>

    <li class="widget_archives"><h2>Archives</h2>

      <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly'); ?>

    <?php endif; ?>

    This code isn't really explaining to me why I would have two sets of "tags" and "blogroll"

    Any ideas?

    I found a different side bar php, (it was labeled sidebar_right.php) This helped a little. Still confused as to why I have two (Tags Clouds)

    Also, how can I move these things around, when looking at the sidebar php, they are not listed in the order they appear on the page.

    wow... Guess if I just looked around long enough I would have found what I just found. Easy fix in the widget category
