Extra mystery widget!

    I noticed yesterday that my blogroll had disappeared – so I researched and found a fix (adding back the Links widget to the Sidebar) but in the process I noticed a Sidebar entry that is both mysterious and impossible to edit or remove. It is a small box with a number (1365), and a live link to my own blog – it is not listed among the widgets under My Dashboard – I would love to just delete it, but since there is no reference to it, I don’t know how.

    Anyone have a clue how to do this?

    The blog I need help with is drfugawe.wordpress.com.


    I looked at the source code, and it is listed as a “links” widget.

    Go to links > links categories and see if 1356 is listed there. If so, then go to settings > writing and choose a default links category. If you had deleted the default “blogroll” links category, and then not set a new default this can happen. Next go back to links > links categories and delete the 1356 category.



    Bingo! Don’t understand what I just did, but it worked fine – can’t remember messing with “links categories” before, but … who knows?

    Thanks much for your assistance – that was annoying.


    You’re welcome.
