    Hi...
    I am getting SELECT cat_id, cat_name FROM Error in sidebar. My Blogroll is not shown. How can i solve this bug?

    I am getting below message in my blog.

    WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1]
    SELECT cat_id, cat_name FROM

    Code is:

    <?php
    $link_cats = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT cat_id, cat_name FROM $wpdb->linkcategories");
    foreach ($link_cats as $link_cat) {
    ?>
    <div class="widget_style" id="links_with_style">
    <div class="cats_head">
    <h2 class="h3">cat_name; ?>
    </div>

      <?php get_links($link_cat->cat_id, '', '', '
      ', FALSE, 'rand', TRUE,
      TRUE, -1, TRUE); ?>

    </div>
    <?php } ?>

    You're using a 2.0 theme on a 2.1+ install. get_links no longer works. You may want to contact the theme designer and see if there's an upgrade. Here's a link to the template tags so you can see what's been removed and what's still current.

    Hope this helps,

    I'd complaint to Template Monster as their theme is not up to date. Either that or edit and fix the theme yourself.

    I would mention using it on a Mu install though as that's probably against their agreement as they may conside that reselling or reoffering the theme.
