Features:

Administrator Control Panel

  • Build Static Pages: Don't destroy your server by running a dynamic directory -- Links creates static html pages just like YahooR and CGI-Resources.
  • Complete Customization: Links has levels of customizations. For the users, there are Templates. You simply edit the look of your site using a regular html editor, and insert tags for the parts where Links should put its information. All aspects of your site, even down to how a Link should look can be edited with templates. 
  • Validating Links: Links let's you preview all links before they are entered into the database. Before adding them in you can edit any aspect of the link. If you accept the link, a custom email notice will be sent to the link owner. If you reject the link, again, a custom rejection notice is sent.

General Program Comments

  • Well-designed: Tired of updating your program and adding patches every week? Tired of trying to figure out thousands of lines of spaghetti code? .
