[PRE] MyFavLinks Plugin
Ok, it was bound to happen. People using MyLinks will need upgrade/support, and the author is no longer around. MyFaves does not use the same database structure.

So, I'm writing a new plugin that will use a *new* database structure, import from both MyFaves and MyLinks and combine features of both programs, into a new upgraded routine.

I'm writing the install now.

During the install, it will try to locate the default MyFaves and MyLinks and ask if you want to:

1) import them
2) ignore them
3) delete them

It will import the data from the programs, into the new tables, then can delete the old templates, scripts and tables, as well as menu functions.

What you will be left with is a MyFavLinks program, and *hopefully* all your data and existing templates will run just fine.

I *know* I said delete templates, but wait and see. I've been thinking about this a lot, and I want to install it on my sites, and might as well make it robust enough to do it all.

Please report any bugs, quirks, or problems with either of the two current versions, so I don't re-engineer those into the new program <G> It's *much* much better to engineer in your own new bugs <G>

I have *not* used either program -- yet -- so this is a pure-code thing, and it's *guaranteed* to not work on every site - especially if you've done a lot of customizations. *but* if you are running the stock plugins, it should work. If you are running customized versions, you will most likely have to do a manual import of some fields, since trying to pick up all eventualities will delay this for way longer than is necessary.

More later.
