In other words, I have a category that is at the bottom of my list on the website but I would like to make it the first. Can this be done? Thanks The blog I need help with is theamericanheritageproject.wordpress.com.

You can also create a hierarchical structure if you have subcategories by configuring the Categories widget to show hierarchical structure http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-categories/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/categories-widget/ January 8, 2010 at 10:46 pm #436117 timethiefMember Categories management http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/category-management/ Categories and links http://en.support.wordpress.com/blogroll/link-categories/ January 8, 2010 at 11:15 pm #436120 boperrinMember Thanks January 8, 2010 at 11:48 pm #436124 mrbisognoMember I wanted to keep my blogroll in a certain order so I made them a numbered list. You should be able to do the same thing with your categories.
