    I am trying to hide the links in the blogroll on a wp blog. More or less like using a div with

    z-index: 1;
    visibility: hidden;
    position: absolute;
    z-index: 10000;

    But I am kind of lost on how to do it, any ideas?

    Go to your widgits section on the admin panel and drag the blogroll widgit off of the section it's sitting in on the right side

    Thanks, but that's not quite what I want to do. What I want is to have the blogroll widget there, but hide it someway so the links aren't visible to the users.

    then go back to your blogroll and edit each link, change the visible parameter to "no"

    That just prevented the link from even showing up in the page.

    But I played around a bit and managed to find a spot to put some code in the bookmark-template.php page and that did the job.

    Hello Nufaman,

    In the admin panel click on the main section called 'Links'.

    and all the links will then show, you'll note that by default it reads 'Yes under the heading 'Visible'.
    Next, click the check box to enter a tick (Check mark) into any link you want to adjust.
    Next, hover over the right hand side of each link and you will note that the option to 'Edit/Delete' becomes visible.. Click on 'Edit'.

    And on the next page you'll notice on the far right hand side is another Check Box with 'Keep this link private ' written next to it..
    Enter a tick (Check mark) here.
    Next, Click on the 'Update Link' button..

    Repeat this operation for each 'Blogroll' link you wish to make invisible..

    No Code has be altered during this operation

    Hope that Helps

    Did that, all it does is stop your link from even showing on the page, I did want it to show but not to be seen by the user.

    Kind of black text on black background used in the 90's

    But as I said, editing the bookmark-template.php did the job
