  1. From Codex:

    Removing the Link Manager
    If you upgraded from a version prior to 3.5, you may still have the link manager in the sidebar, even if it is not needed. To remove this, edit the “Link Manager Enabled” field from 1 (on) to 0 (off) in /wp-admin/options.php or through any database manager.

    Or add this code to your functions.php file:

    update_option( ‘link_manager_enabled’, 0 );

    Adding the Link Manager
    To re-enable the link manager, add the following line to your theme’s functions.php file:

    add_filter( ‘pre_option_link_manager_enabled’, ‘__return_true’ );
