19You can add or edit links on this screen by entering information in each of the boxes. Only the link's web address and name (the text you want to display on your site as the link) are required fields.

21The boxes for link name, web address, and description have fixed positions, while the others may be repositioned using drag and drop. You can also hide boxes you don't use in the Screen Options tab, or minimize boxes by clicking on the title bar of the box.

32You can create groups of links by using link categories. Link category names must be unique and link categories are separate from the categories you use for posts.
33
34You can delete link categories, but that action does not delete the links within the category. Instead, it moves them to the default link category.
