Re: [Alex] What's the difference between <%links%> and <%links_loop%> In reply to
Thanks for the info!! I hadn't even realized there was additional "help" in the admin. That explains it very well. I think previous versions referred only to the support forum in the help section, so I had not been in the habit of looking there. (I've been using Links for more than 3 years, since 2.0, so it's been hard to keep up with all the changes!)

As for my test, my syntax is all correct I think (?) but ... I discovered that the problem is that I am wanting to pull in links from any category, not just the category I am on (and since there is nothing matching those ifs in that category, then I get no results). To get the records I need, I could create the same kind of effect by linking to search results like search.cgi?field=something&anotherfield=somethingelse, but I'd like it to be static and to be able to have those specific records on each category page without actually having to put each record in multiple categories.

so... my new question is, How can I build pages that pull in records that have fields equal to whatever I choose? Can this be accomplished with a loop, or is it more involved?
