I have not given up. I have made some progress, but really would appreciate some helpCrazy

Issue 1: Active Tags

I am still struggling with the linkability issue.

This code:

Code:
sub {
my $output;
my $cat_db = $DB->table('Category');
$cat_db->select_options ('ORDER BY Full_Name');
my $sth = $cat_db->select ({Has_New_Links => 'Yes'} );
while (my $cat = $sth->fetchrow_hashref) {
$output .= Links::SiteHTML::display ('newcategory', $cat);
}
return $output;
}
is fine except it doesn't create the right urls. I've tried as_url etc, but just can't get it to work.

This code, however:

Code:
sub {
my $output;
my $cat_db = $DB->table('Category');
$cat_db->select_options ('ORDER BY Full_Name');
my $sth = $cat_db->select ( ['Full_Name','Name'], { Has_New_Links => 'Yes' });
while (my ($cat,$name) = $sth->fetchrow_array) {
$cat =~ s/ /_/g;
my $cat1 = $cat;
$output .=qq~<a href="$CFG->{build_root_url}/$cat1">$name</a>, ~;
}
return $output;
}
works, but uses a cheap trick to create the right urls. I don't like having to hardcode the HTML.

So, why can't I get it to work with the template?

Issue 2: Technorati Tags-style
It is important to me to be able to style the output. Here is stuff I want to do:

Code:
<%if Number_of_Links > 50 or Has_New_Links eq Yes%>
<big>
<a href="/links/<%Full_Name%>"><%Name%></a>
</big>
<%else%>
<a href="/links/<%Full_Name%>"><%Name%></a>
<%endif%>

This can be used to present something like this (here: all categories, categories with more than 50 links or with new links have bigger font)

Now I just need to combine these two.

I'll promise to write up a reusable global and stuff if I get help getting it to work.
