Installation

To use link manager on your site:

  1. Download Link Manager
  2. Unzip it into a directory that is accessible from the web
  3. For security you should properly move the database to a directory were some one can't just download it.  If you do this you will need to modify the path to the database in the files
    1. default.asp
    2. addlink.asp
    3. openconn.asp

    E.g. change the line:
     objConn.Open("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=c:\links.mdb")

You can edit templates for categories from within Link Manager.  To edit the header and footer used when no category is selected or when no templat

*Note I have had a lot of support request because links aren't showing up to be validated.  This is usually because you haven't made your self an administrator for the category the link was added to.
