Limiting the number of categories shown?

  • Author

    So this is my blog:

    I’d like to limit the number of categories displayed on the right to just 5. Is there an easy way to do this? I couldn’t find an intuitive solution anywhere in the dashboard. I’m wondering if I might ultimately have to just dump all the posts into just 5 categories and delete all the others. I’m hoping there’s another alternative.

    I turned it into a dropdown list, but I’d like for that to just be a temporary solution. Ideally, I’d like to have them all expanded but restricted to only 5 categories.



    That is not a free hosted WordPress.COM blog. Those are the only blogs we provide support for here. Your are posting to the wrong support forum. If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.ORG click and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.
