In the config.asp, you have strLMRequiredBanner dimmed twice and in inc_func_links.asp there should a closing %> on line 45.

Thanks for all of the hard work on this great mod!<

You have:

Response.Write " |" & vbNewline & _
" <a href=""rules.asp""" & dWStatus("Links to other sites and resources...") & " tabindex=""-1""><acronym title=""Links to other sites and resources..."">Links</acronym></a>" & vbNewline

in the inc_header.asp

Should that be links.asp ?

It seams to work well, but when I am logged in as admin and go to "Links Administration" - "Categories & Subcategories" and click the folder icon to "Create New Link" for a subcategory, it jumps to "Latest Links" - "No links found": /links.asp?action=new&id=3. I do not get the "add new link" there either. I don't know if that should be considdered an error or not, thought I would mention anyway.

I actually wanted to remove this;
I've updated the zip file.
(simply replace admin_links.asp)<

Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80040e14'
Syntax error in UPDATE statement.

I am getting an error when inserting - the SQL does not have a value for the language - I have Language turned off so it is not asked on the form so I guess a default is not being set<

Just a Heads-Up for MySQL users....

In the links table, there is a field called "SHOW".... this is reserved in MySQL. I renamed it as well as all references to "SHOWLINK", and it works fine.

I also had a problem with the Language variable... Not sure where this was sappose to come from, but I didn't have it. This was how if Fixed it.

In 2 places in "Links.asp"

ORIGINAL:
If trim(strFormLanguage) = "Select Language" Then
strFormLanguage = 14
End If

Edited:
If trim(strFormLanguage) = "Select Language" OR Len(strFormLanguage) < 1 Then
strFormLanguage = 14
End If



Here's the My Edited version for MySQL users.
