Don't know what to name it.

Don't know what to name it.
Is there a way to configure add.cgi so that you can only add links to that category from inside that category, and if they aren't allowed to add links to that category (i.e. from the category select mod) that they get a message saying the have to be more specific or something like that? Yes, I know that was a run on sentence but, grammar was never my forte.

From links.cfg

# Should your add.cgi automatically select what category the user
# is adding his link into?
$db_single_category = 1;

I don't know about an error message though.

Hope it helps.

No, i think what he means is that it will go to the cgi, but if they aren't in a certain level of categories, they are still on the cgi but an error comes up. Someone here does that, but i don't know if they want to tell everybody. I could probably try to figure that out.

Get Bobsie's Exclude Categories Mod, or i think it may be called Category Select, but its on his mod site. Oh yeah, here it is, i had a bookmark goodstuff.orphanage.com/rcat_mod.html I haven't tried it but I've been meaning to. It looks good. And to achieve the answer to your full question, also do what DanO says. I don't know if it displays errors or not, maybe you can ask him.

And the neat thing is, that mod was just updated to do exactly what kiel1 was asking for! Version 1.3, 19 Aug 99, is now available for the Category Select Mod.
