Editors Function Not Working, files possibly missing from the program?
I need to add category editors, and nothing seems to be working. In the past the site was upgraded from Links 1.0, to Links SQL, and more lately to Gossamer Links. Here are the steps I went through and the problems I had, if it will help troubleshoot this:

1. I set up a username and password for an editor at cgi-bin/lsql/user.cgi.

2. I assigned that user to edit two categories. Upon checking the categories, at the bottom it indicated that this member was an editor.

3. I returned to the User sign in form, and signed in as the new editor. There was no link to the editor controls.

I had read in the forums that there is supposed to be a "maintain.cgi" file somewhere in the system that the editor link is supposed to point to. I had also read of a file called "editor.cgi" which is also missing.

Neither of these files is present in the program files, so if I try to go to the maintain.cgi file directly after signing in as an editor, I get a 404 error.

Are the maintain.cgi and editor.cgi supposed to be present in Gossamer Links, or what could the problem be?
