Limited add possibilities possible?
Hi there,

I have a website with a lot of categories, sorted under 3 major categories. I only want my users to be able to add links in 2 of the major categories.

Does anyone know who I can leave the 1 category out, when my members go to add.cgi and tries to add a site?

You'd have to do some custom programming, basically to block (or allow) access to only the areas you want.

Unfortunately, Links doesn't have this capability at this point.

I'm working on a solution -- a look-up list, using another field in the category record. Add.cgi would check the "uploads allowed" and return an error message, or bounce the user to the first level they could add to.

The "problem" is more one of setting up the system, rather than the actual implementation. Managing the directory tree, and what categories allow uploads, and which do not, is hard.

One request was to not allow uploads into any category that had subcategories.

So, you can see how it starts to get complicated fast :)

"One request was to not allow uploads into any category that had subcategories. "

Is this possible now? is was it also just an idea how to make it work?
Because the categori I want users to add into, haven't got any subcategories, and the ones I don't want them to add into, has Sly
