Thanks for that. Worked a treat for the categories. Now how can I sort the links in each category in the order that I want?
my other question is that with the links, some of them are other blogs. On Blogger where my old site was, it gave you a snap shot of the last blog entered of the blogs you added from friends ( if that makes sense) . Can that be done on wordpress? that way you didn't have to visit the other blog to see if it had been updated as it showed on your page. like an all in one shop.
