beginner - Need Help
I'm having a few problems with errors in the admin windows, and would sincerely appreciate someone's advice. My ISP is running the latest version of Perl 5.60 on an NT server. Here's a few of the bugs:

1) Every time the "home.html" file is edited in templates admin, it packs hard breaks into the HTML code. After 5 updates to this page, the source has grown to over 300k in size because of the hard breaks. Any suggestions? Should I just edit this page in notepad and forget about it?

2) This a sample of a repeated error when links are validated in the admin (depending on how many links are validated, it may repeat dozens of times):

"Use of uninitialized value in substitution (s///) at c:/website/htdocs/basslessons/htdocs/cgi-bin/links/admin/Mailer.pm line 300. Use of uninitialized value in substitution (s///) at c:/website/htdocs/basslessons/htdocs/cgi-bin/links/admin/Mailer.pm line 301. Use of uninitialized value in substitution (s///) " etc etc.

3) This error also turns up quite a bit:
"Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) at c:/website/htdocs/basslessons/htdocs/cgi-bin/links/admin/admin_html.pl line 1562."

What the heck does concatenation mean?

One poster mentioned hacking the 'sub build_html_record_form'. Could anyone elaborate on this?


Thanks very much in advance,
Rob
