Is it possible to modify db fields?
I'm just getting started with my first Links 2.0 implementation - haven't actually got mine up yet, but I've played with the admin screen on this site (i.e., http://www.gossamer-threads.com/...inks/admin/admin.cgi). My question is very, very basic: On the "Add a New Link" screen, there are 13 database fields (ID, Title, URL, etc.) Is it possible to modify these fields in Links 2.0, or does one need to use Links SQL to do that? I'm pretty happy with the 13 fields there, but I really need at least one additional field. I would like it to act like the Description field, so that if a user did a search on a word in the additional field, then the search query would catch the match.

If this is a question for the mod forum, just let me know. I'm posting it here because I do not even know if this is the sort of modification that's possible, or if maybe I bought the wrong product and really need Links SQL.
