How do I get the Links Widget to work

    I wanted to separate my links from my blog roll so websites would be under links and other blogs would be under the blogroll. I added the Links widget but I cannot figure out how to add links to it. Anyone have any suggestions?

  2. The links widget actually only adds your blogroll to your sidebar of your blog. What you might want to do is just use a couple blogroll categories and then seperate out your links that way. They will show under the different headings in the sidebar that way. All blogroll editing and creating is done at Admin => Blogroll

    The other option is just create a 'text widget' and add the links that you want into that and place it wherever you want in your sidebar. Just another way to keep the links seperate.

    use the code above, edit and repeat accordingly.

  6. You already have a Top Posts widget
    -> Presentation -> Widgets
    drag the widget out of the "Available Widgets" box and drop it into the "Sidebar" box and click "Save changes".

    If you prefer then you can create a text widget and place all the links in it
