Category link template

Category link template
I am trying to find the category link template so I can change it from

sub site_html_print_cat in site_html_templates.pl to a category link template.

I have searched in the posts and found this link

http://www.gossamer-threads.com/...k%20Template;#103634

but it does not work since the code to replace does not match what is in that section. Here is the portion of that .pl

sub site_html_print_cat {

my (@subcat) = @_;

my ($url, $numlinks, $mod, $subcat, $category_name, $description, $output, $i);

$columns = 3;

$output = qq|<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">\n|;

$output .= qq|<tr>\n|;

foreach $subcat (sort @subcat) {

my $mod = $stats{"$subcat"}[3];

my $new_add = $stats{"$subcat"}[4];

($description) = @{$category{$subcat}}[2];

($subcatstyle) = @{$category{$subcat}}[9];



$url = "$build_root_url/" . &urlencode($subcat) . "/";

if ($subcat =~ m,.*/([^/]+)$,) {

$category_name = &build_clean($1);

}

else {

$category_name = &build_clean($subcat);

}

$numlinks = $stats{"$subcat"}[0];

# $mod = $stats{"$subcat"}[1];

if ($i == $columns) {

$output .= qq|</tr>\n<tr>|;

$i = 0;

}

$output .= qq|<td vAlign="top">\n|;

$output .= qq|<a href="$url">$category_name</a>\n|;

$output .= qq|<i>($numlinks)</i> \n|;

if ($new_add eq "Yes") {

$days_old = &days_old($stats{"$subcat"}[2]);

if ($days_old <= 2) { $output .= qq| $new_1|; }

elsif ($days_old <= 7) { $output .= qq| $new_3|; }

elsif ($days_old <= 14) { $output .= qq| $new_7|; }

}

if ($mod eq "Yes") { $output .= qq~ $updated~; }

$output .= qq|<br>|;

$output .= qq|$description\n| if (!($description =~ /^[\s\n]*$/));

$i++;



if ($subcatstyle =~ m,^\(([^\)]+)\)(\d)$, && $#{$subcategories{$subcat}} >= 0) {

($subcatstyle, $style) = ($1, $2);

$s = 0;

@subcatsub = split (/\|/, $subcatstyle);

$output .= qq~&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;~ if ($style eq "1");

foreach $category_name (@subcatsub) {

foreach (sort @{$subcategories{$subcat}}) {

($subcatstyle eq "ALL" && $#subcatsub == 0) ?

($_ =~ m,.*/([^/]+)$, and $category_name = &build_clean($1)) :

($_ eq "$subcat/$category_name" or next);

if ($style eq "1") {

$length += length($category_name);

($length > $subcat_length) and last;

}

if ($s > 0) {

$output .= qq~, ~ and $length += 2 if ($style eq "1");

$output .= qq~ ~ if ($style eq "2");

}

$url = "$build_root_url/" . &urlencode($_) . "/";

$output .= qq~<Li>~ if ($style eq "2");

$output .= qq~<B><a class="subcat" href="$url"><FONT COLOR=black SIZE=2>$category_name</font></a></B>~;

$s++;

last if ($subcatstyle ne "ALL" && $#subcatsub > 0);

}

}

undef $length;

if ($s < $#{$subcategories{$subcat}}) {

$output .= qq~...~ if ($style eq "1");

}

$output .= qq~<BR>~;

$output .= qq|</td>\n|;

}

else { }}

$output .= "</tr>\n</table>\n";

return $output;

}

1;



I also searched for in the resources and found the link not working any longer.
