but, as directed in the ReadMe instructions, i CHMODed the files with no problems. as i've mentioned before, Links 2.0 ran beautifully for me not 2 weeks ago... and then my administrator went into my codes to correct a minor problem. hrm.
in any case, i've tried installing a separate script (FormMail) onto my server, and there's no luck there, either. i'm beginning to think this all might lie with my server. if it is, i am far from impressed. in any case, i've written an email.
