I can't follow that link, so I'm not sure what version you have.

MyFavLinks, SearchLogger, Days_Old, Bad_Link, Detail_Page, and several others have (or will be) rewritten to include the fixes and changes that need to be made to make them work.

Many of those were written as quick fixes, to solve a problem, in the 1.1x days, and time has been an issue in getting them improved and cleaned up for the 2.1x and above series.

I'm actually trying to get all my "free" release programs into one plugin, that you install, and just enable the functionality you need. Most of them used no hooks, but were directly called. Only the search logger I think, uses a hook. With the addition of the loop_link feature, the #1 hook (and problem) was elimiated by doing the call from inside the link.html / category.html templates rather than with a hook into Site_HTML::display.

Real soon, the definitive release of these programs will be out, as I'm slowly taming the chaos of my life.

But, there are a lot of issues that all hit --
1) these were early programs written as I was learning both Perl and Links
2) Links has changed greatly
3) it's persistent environment support is better, and calling conventions and logic have changed
4) more people are running under mod_perl, so these early programs need some extra tweaking

So, it's a tedious and slow process.
