Displayin "Add a Link" based on category depth?
The way the submission process is set up, it allows a surfer to submit a site under a main category, even though it belongs in a subcategory if that's where they are when they click Add a Link.

Problem is with the "Add A Link" at the bottom of every page the newbies don't know how to drill down to the subcategory, and there's no instructions for them to locate the correct subcategory prior to clicking on the add a link. Editors (unless they are really watching) just validate the link where it's at, and either don't realize where it will display when the directory regenerates the pages, or don't think to move it after validation to the appropriate sub category.

Solution would be to remove the add a link from the screen if the category depth is 0 or 1 and have it appear on only pages with a depth of 2 or greater ,that would just offer it on category pages that you want to see submissions in - it will also simplify the editors work, as then the new listings are pretty much categorized when received.

But, does anyone know a way that this can be accomplished?

Thanks in advance.
