Disabling LinkOwner completely
I just lost 45 minutes of typing & hitting preview, so I'll give the quick version: I'm not worried about the security aspects involved, but I want to allow and Registered User the permission to modify ANY link. I've gone into modify.pm and changed one of the lines as such:

my $sth = $link_db->select ( { ID => $lid, LinkOwner => $USER->{Username} });

TO:

my $sth = $link_db->select ( { ID => $lid });



This allowed me to finally click on edit without any errors and get into the modify screen. Unfortunately, when I make a change and hit submit, I get this error message:

We were unable to find the URL '53' in the database. Please make sure you typed it in exactly as it appears in the directory.

And link ID 53 is a valid link. Any help or input would really be appreciated here....I'd like to sleep some day this week!
Perl Hopefull
