Multiple Category - Garbled Text
Hello Everybody,

I tried applying the mod from http://www.online-sweepstakes.com/links-mods/ regarding adding multiple category support to links 2.,

I managed to successfully install the mod but I experienced these problems:
  • The ratings/Votings in the Top Rated section completely vanished
  • Sites waiting to be validated appeared all garbled up
  • If I try and modify submitted sites already listed in the databases, their location on the forms also show garbled up.

Can anybody tell me what to do ? I tried searching on these forums but consider me dumb or stupid but I couldn't find anything related to this query.



P.S., What I mean by garbled is for example A text field suposed to display user's email address shows Yes/No or a number from another TextField.
Can't draw it here ......,

Sounds like you made a boo-boo in your links.def file. Go through the whole process again, and check to see if you did anything wrong, or missed something.

Hope that helps.

I'm guessing you added the new field as number five, per the mod? This will throw off everything if you don't add a space for the firld in the links db file. It's a pipe-delimited file (like this: | ). There is a script that will add this to your files automatically, get it and some explanations here: http://gossamer-threads.com/...mp;ubb=001090:Forum3
