I know it's on my list, for my postcards site. People can mark links as "favorites" and it will show up in a picklist for them.

The concept is not hard, and with the advanced template processing, it should even be easier.

You need a table that is Username=>LinkID

You need a few simple routines to add/delete links to this list, but the display routines should be as trivial as a function to do a select, return the title and ID in an array, then send the array pointer to a <%loop%> variable in the template. You could even use a generic template, and an <%if%> tag such that <%if favorites%>display list<%else%>display the 'show favorites' link<%endif%>

I'm just in a hole, and can't seem to ever see the sun.

I did an SQL version of my PortalLinks mod awhile ago for Links 2.0 but it hasn't been officially released or tested much. If you want to try to make it compatible with Links SQL, by all means give it a shot...
