My b2evolution Version:
version: 3.3.3 (why doesn't 3.3.3 appear in the "b2evo version" dropdown?)
Usually I'm pretty good at figuring computer things out, but sidebar links are pretty confusing. I go to manage > sidebar links, add a new link, and here's where it loses me I would have expected a field where I put in the URL. Instead there is an editor just like a regular post. So I put in the link to the desired site and save the post as "published."
Then I go to blog settings > widgets, add the simple sidebar links widget. Then when I view the blog, the link appears in the sidebar -- OK. But... when I click on the link, it doesn't go to the URL. Instead the page title is "Invalid request" and the page says only "Sorry, there is nothing to display..."
I also looked at the documentation in the manual for the linkblog, but it seems to be out of date. http://manual.b2evolution.net/.9.2_Linkblog
What I'm really after is to have a link on the side that will go back to the homepage of my website (the blog is just one area).
