Links in Wordpress - Sidebar issues

I just notices that two of the links I have added via my dashboard in Wordpress are not appearing on my sidebar. I have checked their parameters and they both should be visible but are not, one is Kitchen Wonders and the other is Cook Sister! Is there a limit to the number of links I can have?? Does anyone have any idea why this could be the case?

I've never seen anything in the WP scripts that would restirct the number of links.

Do the links appear in your "Manage Links' list?

Nice list by the way, I know it can be a lot of work to find out where bloggers are.

Thanks Paul.

The links do appear in the "Manage Links" list and there are also a couple which no longer appear there but still appear on my site.

Someone on WP support has said I should be clearing my WP-Cache but I'm hesitant to start deleting files before understanding what exactly they are.

I've cleared my WP-Cache files and that has had no effect, I really don't know what to try next.

have you made sure that they are checked to be "visible"?

Are they in a new category of link that isn't in your code?

-yeah, so what does your page source show? Do the links show up in it?
Maybe you have them accidently commented out... ?

I have resolved the link issue, when examining my sidebar I found that I had included some static code!!! What a dufus!

I have a further remaining issue I have bullet points which are all over the place. These bullet points only appear in my sidebar when I have used php coding not when it has been user added data.

I'm new to HTML and CSS, both items of code (the dynamic php and my user added items) have been set to h2 so I would have thought it this was a stylesheet issue that both sets of code would be affected in the same way.

Does that make sense?

Anyone know how to resolve this?

After examining my coding I have realized my issue is more to do with PHP and not CSS or HTML as I previously thought.

Is anyone here good with PHP?
